Incredible match from Grigor who was stunning to watch. That shot was out of this world but his backhand slice and drop-shot were great throughout the match. I hope he can play like this against Benneteau.
Nice to see him constantly on the attack and playing with a sense of purpose. It's what has been lacking recently.
Great match from Grigor today; he is such a different player when he lands that first serve on the Ad side out wide; his forehand has was consistent and he was able to put Troicki under pressure repeatedly. I will say that Troicki played a very poor match and was very passive. I like the fact that Grigor converted 50% of breakpoints and hit a forehand winner on the only breakpoint he faced. 'The Shot' was obviously great - not much you can add there. Hopefully he can have a repeat performance against Bennetteau...my gut tells me he's on a mission here
