Both have single handed backhand which are good. Both are under high expectations to reach the level of their talent. Whose gonna advance?

If some unknown talent came out of some random tiny country (no chance to win DC) and won 20 slams, no one would give a single shit if that player didn't have DC. The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.

Would have been better if they were meeting in the fourth round. Richard is in as good a shape as I have ever seen him coming into RG. He's the one with the potential to do some damage here. I just hope Grisha can put up a good fight and give us a memorable match. He's talented enough. Go for broke Grisha. You've nothing to lose. Not a great thing for tennis that one of these two is going out in the 2nd round.

Gasquet to go through in 4.

If Grigor keeps this level and doesn't panic i can see a tight 4 setter and the youngster getting it.

It's always the same feelling - now is the time...let's see.

Dimitrov has the FH as a shot. IE you're dead wrong.

Having said that, there's no way Dimitrov takes more than a set here. Even that'll be surprising. He might play better if they put him on PC or SL as he likes to show off when losing.
