Grigor can't capitalise on Brown 2nd serve.

He needs to get his 1st serv % up which was down to 40% in the 2nd set. At least he has an early break in the 3rd.

Good win for Grisha! I left the office end of second set hoping that I will at least get to see the end of 3rd but he finished it quickly
The key was winning the 1 set tiebreak! That was mentally challenging!
Good luck in the QF! He is closer to top 50

Very happy he won today, especially the way he turned the match around in the 3rd set. Winning the first 12 points shows how focused he was. He's hitting the ball well but his 1st serve will need to be more consistent, especially when he's back on grass for the Olympics.

Up to 55 in the live rankings and he has a very good chance against Kubot.

He's the first match on Centre tomorrow at 11am.

He had this to say about today's match
Quote:
“It was a funny match,” said Dimitrov. “He is a very tricky player. It was a great win for me. Conditions were tough and everything went in a smooth way. I am starting to feel I am playing well on all surfaces now. It’s coming together.

if you only watch Dimitrov from the side, his shots are exactly like Federer's. I thought it was only a hype because of the one-handed backhand but he really resembles RF. I hope he achieves 10% of what RF has done.

Good to see him win a match like this easily. He's come a long way in the last few months and finally seems to have the mental strength and maturity to match his obvious talent. Kubot only managed to win 2 points on 2nd serve which shows how dominant Grigor was in rallies. Can't wait to watch his SF tomorrow.

He played very well today, a lot less errors than his previous round. Kubot didn't have a chance to get into the match. Only shaky moment when he served for the 1st set but after that everything went in.

I won't be able to watch tomorrow. It looks like he'll play Bellucci, a real clay-court talent with a lot heavier serve and groundstrokes. He'll have a chance when Bellucci goes walk about in the middle of the match.

Grigor's comment after the win over Kubot:

Quote:
"I'm happy I made it in two sets today," said Dimitrov. "It's great to play my third semi-final in a few weeks. It's always difficult to make the next step, but I hope that I can win tomorrow and be in the final on Sunday."

Good win for Grigor - his confidence is growing, and I have the feeling that the third time's a charm. Bellucci is a tough clay-courter, and I think it'll be a tight match, but I think he'll pull this one out. Something like 6-4 or 7-5 in the third is a definite possibility. This reminds me a bit of Del Potro in '08 when he won four tournaments in a row...

It's raining at the moment which probably works in Bellucci's favour. I'm still confident Grigor can win this.
