He should be able to take Chardy - then it gets pretty tough with probably Almagro (although I don't think highly of his all-court game), then possibly Baghdatis or Wawrinka...after that it could be Berdych in the fourth round. We know he's got the game (which looks to be much improved) - question is: can he sustain a high level of play for three out of five sets.

Not a bad draw but could be tricky. I hope he takes revange from Chardy!
Good luck!

It's a good draw although Chardy can be dangerous given he beat Grigor at the FO. Grigor is a far better player now and he should know Chardy's game well considering they train together so he I would expect him to win this one.

Chardy said before that he'd never got a set against Dimitrov in trainings. I don't know about his confidence, but Dimitrov is more confident after beating Fish.

He plays on Monday and he's the 3rd match on court 8 (I would estimate 3am GMT). I wonder if there will be a video feed for this court.

there is a live stream from this court, yes.

I hope he broke the Frenchmen-at-slams curse and win this match.

That's great. I don't think I'll be able to watch it as I'm at work the next day but if anyone could record and upload the match it would be much appreciated.

Default Re: Grigor in 2012 (general)

I suggest not to expect too much this time, shall we? Round by round. R1 not an easy task. I've just watched the match with Chardy at RG and he hit the ball really well back them to come on top. Ironically Grigor also retired the match before that as it repeats here too. Of course he ain't suffering that awful pollen allergy now but this kind of consequences are bothering me somewhat...

Even if he beats Chardy (which isn't easy) he'll meet a top 10 player with almagro. So we can't expext more than round 2. Everything else is just great. Of course I also hope for more but I wouldn't be disappointed even if he looses 1st round as long as it isn't 16 26 16 or something like that...

These are 2 completely different matches. I wouldn't decide the outcome based on the match with Fish - completely different players, different styles, outdoor/indoor, 2/3 and 3/5 sets, one is unofficial match the other is a R1 grand slam. Fish was not playing that well too. Besides Chardy won in straights sets the last time they played. Just some reasons to think about.
IMO this first match will be very hard, especially the first set, assuming Chardy will got that self confidence on his side. If Grigor plays well and wins it it will be a lot easier from then on.
Match with Fish only reveals that Grigor is in a great shape and very concentrated. A good sign to begin with...

I just wanna say that both Fish and Almagro are top 10 players not in form...so Girogr can taka advantage of this :P

Default Re: Grigor in 2012 (general)

keep in mind that both grigor and jeremy are in completely different places then they were at the french open last year

grigor's game is coming together but jeremy's victory last year also came at a time when nothing was really expected of him and his results werent great

but jeremy has been in good form to end the season last year and comes in to this season winning a challenger title so i dont think we can take to much from the match last year because they are both playing much better
