Not a scintillating match for certain, Grigor never found the level he needed to stay with the Argentine.

All in all, a good tournament for Grigor after that heinous losing skid he was on.

Really great performance. Delpo looked dominating on serve, and accelerated the power on his forehands which left Grigor exposed. Great win for Delpo. Great to see him bounce back in great form after AO.

Dimitrov is nice to watch at times, but he just seems too inaccurate too often to truly make the grade. Is he ever going to fulfill the hype? And has the hype just been based on the fact he has a similar style to Federer?

Del Potro was fairly comfortable here. Let's hope he can regain the ability to go to the last stages of majors too this season...

Some great shot-making from both players but Dimitrov threw in two poor service games to be broken in each set. Del Potro played very well and his serve found the lines whenever Dimitrov threatened it.

On the positive side, Dimitrov showed he is fully capable to trading shots with Del Potro from the baseline and he had the right gameplan, he just got sloppy at times. His serve and backhand weren't consistent enough today but his forehand was awesome and I loved the trickshot he hit through his legs at the baseline. It's been a good week for Dimitrov and it will be interesting to see if he can build on it.

Expected result and score, coudlnt expect less.

I could make fun of dimutards, but I wont, you already made fun of yourselves saying this guy was about to beat Del Potro.

I even like the kid, but the dimitrovtards in this forum are a pain in the ass.

His serve needs to be a little less predictable though, he really needs to work on his slicer out wide and a more effective body serve at least. Against top returners, once they read his patterns he's in serious trouble since he basically just blasts the ball to the T or the corner without any variation at all.

the hype?

he's 33rd in the world, 21yo, played a final 250 and a semi 500 already this year and it's mid February...

Hype?

Happy to see Del Potro in an ATP 500 final, he has to be in form for Indian Wells and Miami because there he can proove that he can be a TOP5 player again!

Dimitrov will get some interesting points for his ranking He did a great tournament, defeating Tomic in 1st round.
