same weakness though, he responses well when a break down. but somehow missed opportunities are distracting him more and so are the rain delays.
So he will either implode and lose the second set easily or will gather himself even more motivated and will play till the last point is called. IMO the longer the rain delay, the better for Grigor.

I hope he sees BOTH the positive and negative from this tournament and realize that he clearly has what it takes to be a top player, but he, himself, is the one blocking the entrance to the next level.
I'm happy with the way he played apart from the tie-breaks where he lost focus and his level dropped. He rallied well against an experienced claycourter, hit some stunning winners and was always looking to be aggressive. His backhand which was too inconsistent in the past has really developed into a big weapon.
His 1st serve needs a bit of fine-tuning for grass as it doesn't seem reliable enough at the moment but he should go to the Olympics with a lot of confidence in his game. He just looks a far more complete player than he did a couple of months ago and it feels like he is learning with each match. I really hope I get to see him next week.
