Vamos Rafa.

Would be great if he could take another RG/Wimbledon this year.

OMG . Lost for words. I was worried after those chokes/close losses against the top guys recently his confidence would be dented, and you can't afford to have any doubt when playing the top guys. But he's got that big win now, and so soon.

Disappointing from Novak but what a win for Dimitrov .

Hopefully some ghosts will have passed through... The more you see him play the big matches, the more you realize that Grigor is afraid of winning them, hence the double faults, poor footwork and why not, cramps also come to play... It's almost as if he does not believe he could really win, so his mind starts looking for excuses for the loss... The late second set cramping was pure stress induced, his mind was already in panic mode, fearful and doubtful... so he's gotta make sure the world sees he is cramping out, the agony face, the falls, the suffering, he was getting ready to choke... Great talent, but fans will have to suffer with the drama, unless this boost of confidence changes his on court outlook... Baby Federer no more, where Fed was poker face, Grigor is operatic, and I love it!

It looked that way.
Dimitrov played a solid game but still hasn't shown strong potential that some are looking for.
Djokovic played better than someone who hadn't practiced in that long and if you watched the match you'd know that quote of his is total bullshit
either he's exaggerating and has practiced or it was irrelevant because his game just was not that bad, moreover his attitude was

Easily Dimitrov's most meaningful victory in his career. Sad to see Djokovic have an early exist, but fresh to see the underdog achieve victory.

Great win for Dimitrov. He needed this match more than ever after that loss to Nadal in MC. He can only go further.

Nole, now you've got a longer preparation for Rome. Please don't mug that tournament.

reported for wishing injury!! If Novak had fins, this would be very painful:
Shark finning refers to the removal and retention of shark fins. The rest of the body is generally discarded in the ocean...

That post made sense to you?!?!??

I believe him.
At least that was how his level looked.
He didn't have the usual pace on the ball and making many errors on easy balls.
Poor timing on his shots is something that shows up without practice.
Movement was lackluster too, didn't see any intensity either, just all around not sharp at all.

Whatever the reason he can rest up now which is the best thing to do and get ready for the remaining tournaments while others are wearing down.

Good for Dimitrov to take advantage of the situation, many others still would have lost.

If Madrid put Djokovic and Nadal in opposite halves by draw rigging then it backfired. LOL

Early favorite for best crowd of 2013.

Tards finally realizing that nobody except for Serbian nationalists give a shit about Djokovic.
