I am very pleased with how he played yesterday, I was amazed at some of the shots he hit. I got 10x more excited watching that match than any others. That one backhand pass down the line

Me and chantelle from here randomly sat next to each other as well, which was pretty funny. We went to see him after the match and both got photos Great day overall

After two days of great tennis i finally have a chance to post about the match. Court3 is a nice court but when you go to the unallocated seats, you cant leave! I got on the court at 10.30 and sat through a crap women's match that went to 3 sets and never seemed to end. I really wanted to go to the toilet after that but there was no way i was losing my seat as there was a big queue to get on court. I just had to hope Grigor won in 3 sets and there was no rain delay. Sadly i was wrong about both but i stayed strong lol.

Grigor got abig cheer when je came on court and apart from a few south africans, everyone was supporting him. His serve was awsome, especially the one out eide in the deuce court. He killed anderson with his backhand slice who was digging balls out of the dirt all day. He also handled anderson's big serve very well and i felt confident he would finf a way to break it. All the magic came from Grigor wjo hit some amazing passing shots and winners that had the crowd cheering. His topspin backhand was a little unreliable but when it worked, it did a fair amount of damage. The best thing thougj was the way Grigor handled the big points. Clutch tennis at its finest and a big change from earlier this year. He is like a different player and looks confident on court.

He reacyed well to losing the 3rd set and kept putting pressure on anderson's serve, finally breaking it. When he won the match, he got a great reception from the crowd and it is clear his profile has really been raised in Britain since Queens. When he starts winning big matches, he will be a huge star.

Im on a train to Scotland now and i should br home after 4pm. Hopefully i will get to see his match today. Marcus will be tough but Grigor cam win it and a match against Murray on CC would be incredible!. If anyone can record today/s match it would be great. Ibwill upload my .photos when i get achance.

I had an awesome time and if any of you get a chance to see Grigor live, take it! His game is absolutely stunning and live streams just dont do it justice.

No way am i going to see any of this match. I should have been home by now but my damn train is stuck in the north of england because of floods. If anyone can record and upload the match, i would be eternally grateful.

@chantelle. Hope you are cheering for all of us. Wish i was there.

Good luck Grigor!

This is the reason why he hasn't cracked into the Top50 yet. Can't even play one and half good matches without a streak of sloppiness.

broken to love serving for the set, staying so far behind the baseline and being passive
unreal?!!?
