They have faced each other twice. Grisha won their first meeting at Eastbourne last year 6-3, 6-2. Anderson then won in San Jose last February 2-6, 7-6(5), 7-6(3).

Anderson's movement on this surface is laughable. He gave Lopez a lot of openings in his service games too, so I'd expect Dimitrov to take advantage and win two sets.

Grisha in two. Probably a similar scoreline to today.

Grigor moves a lot better than Andersson and has more variety to his game, he just needs to read Andersson's serve well. Given how Grigor played today, he can take this in straight sets.

The draw is wide open now. It's time to step up Grigor.

Muller has a big serve also; Dimi handled it well and played an almost perfect tiebreak. And after some really impressive tennis from him today against Mahut, I'll be surprised if he doesn't take it in two.

Amazing the number of people completely writing the much higher ranked player off. It's not as if Grisha has the record to warrant this much optimism. Talent alone doesn't win you matches...Grisha knows this better than most.

You've bet against Grigor each round and you've been wrong every time.

Of course people are optimistic but that is because they hope he does well and has a breakthrough at this tournament. Whether you like him or not, he's good for the game and you can bet the tournament organisers will be hoping he wins tomorrow.

Allez, can you take your high-and-mighty attitude out of this thread. You're really a depressingly annoying poster and you seem to be posting against all my favs.

I do agree Anderson is probably favourite but Grigor has proven he can handle big servers and if you've actually watched him, he read Mahut's serve quite well. I am optimistic (although I did bet on Anderson as a precaution ) he can take it in 3.

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.

WTF Are you talking about I didn't pick Reynolds to beat Grisha in the 1st round. Didn't vote on that thread. I picked Grisha to beat Muller in the 2nd round.

So please stop telling porkies

It's good that you've decided to come out and admit how much of failure your predictions are. A good gesture but you have to do way better than that.
