He is the most exciting player in tennis and he will be a huge star if he can finally make the most of his talent and win a GS.

Mny times he does it for the crowd and the crowd loves it, so i don't see what is the problem of the Dimitrov haters..

Especially considering the fact that he hardly misses such shots. He's actually using his skills to almost perfection, getting himself out of positions where any other shot would just give the ball to the opponent to blast it away.

When you look at those video i wonder which play is the problem exactly?

Shot of 2013 while smashing a poor Troicki? Nothing much more could have been done at this contre pied, it's not like Monfils letting the high ball bounce o he dances around it to play a dumb smash...it's a reflex shot that goes winning and not many can produce.

Cinci - block passing on anticipated smash...should he have block lobed again?

Rotterdam - better defensive lob at this one? again? who's that stupid to whine against those?

Acapulco - not even a trick shot, just countless slides on a long rally and Murray's dumb drop shot being punished.

Indian Wells - only the haters and people who never played tennis could think there is a better play in this situation that what he did.

I can understand haters being jealous and shit, but they should understand it's all that this is, no twisted logic, comparisons to Monfils or general argumentless hatred could solve this for you, it's simple jealousy.

Latso, although I think most players trickshots are more forced, most of Dimitrovs behind the back etc shots seem a bit forced.

For me he is not on the Federer level, not even close actually.
Federer hits those between the leg shots after the opponent shot touches the net and changes direction. Or in the Henman USO case, Henman hit a volley while Federer was way inside the court so he had very little time and the move seemed to get him a bit of time.

Dimitrovs anticipation is a bit wrong in most cases, he moves in the wrong direction and then compensates with a behind the back shot where I feel a low backhand volley is also possible.

Also when hitting a smash on a smash Federer stroke and whole body is very fluid, Dimitrov looks a bit spastic.

Personally the backhand slice passing shot impresses me the most. Nice touch, fluid, just perfect!

This is definitely one of my favourite gems from Grigor. Here he reacts instinctively. He was off position, the ball was coming behind his back, no time to react and he came up with this amazing (and a bit lucky) improvisation. Not pre-maditated, not planned. Just pure instinct and talent. The fact that he went on to win the point with a terrific pass, gives the icing on the cake. A strong contender for shot of the year. Although that gruelling rally against Murray at Acapulco with a couple of impossible gets, also could compete in the category...

I'll take this opportunity to say that I won a very Grigor-esque point at the net today where I ended up falling flat on the ground while making the shot but still passed the other guy.

I think I might pull a Johnny Groove and proclaim myself the future World No. 1 now.
