Plain and simple. :shrug:

He can only win matches against much less talented players or when he faces even players even more stupid than him.

Coaching change won't matter. No coach will be able to think for him in the court.

he is overrated. these results are normal for him.
Very much so. I wonder how long it will take for his apologists to realise that he is far from the talent they believe him to be. He will be lucky to have the career of, say, Goffin or Querrey.

Grigor's problem is that he's far too talented to play high level tennis. He can only perform where he faces all the greats of all times.

You definitely get the impression that Sharapova dominates him. The formidable ice queen has probably crushed his spirit completely, and the result is matches like today's. He needs to get away from her, wearing the gimp suit every night is trapping him in more ways than one.

He isnt stupid lol, but i think he is lacking in confidence right now(probably on and off court). He should change something, idk change coach or break up with sharapova, but he cant go forward in this direction. :shrug:
It would be a pity if he doesnt figure it out, coz i still think he can become a GS contender. :sad:
Or maybe he's waiting for fed to retire, so he can coach him :lol:

he is overrated. His forehand is not nearly good enough to cover his atrocious backhand ... look at Tomic. He has a similar issue. His movement is so suspect. In this day and age, you don't get away with a huge hole like that

All I know is that when he's playing well he's just above average in every department. At his best he's not terrible at anything and he's not amazing at anything. Decent movemenent, decent serve, decent forehand, good backhand, decent net game, decent variety...that's pretty much Dimitrov in a nutshell. Good, but not at all great.

dude, you don't even celebrate 4th of July. Put down the pipe. His backhand is awful even when he is playing well. lol. What is this with everyone with a beautiful backhand having a "good backhand." There are some atrocious one handed backhands. It's like saying every big breasted blond is beautiful. That's not true though.

Dimitrov doesn't seem natural on the court. His serve is not a fluid motion. There is a kink. The backhand is very exploitable. And his forehand is not big enough to compensate for that miserable backhand and ok serve

He was never that good tbh. His 'peak' last year was more based around luck than it was actual good form.

You must be stupid or you just didn't read properly. "Good, but not all great" is what I said. Dimitrov has a good backhand when he's playing well, but it's nothing special.

My post on Dimitrov is entirely truth. He's decent in everything he does, but he's not great at anything either.

OK. Let's stop with name calling because you know I'd win that. lol. Here: Dimitrov's backhand when he is playing 150% is s***. You can quote me on that. If his backhand stood for his manhood, he'd be a virgin even on Viagra.

with his poor BH he needs a killer FH, and he doesn't have it
with his poor ROS he needs a killer consistent serve (esp. second), and he doesn't have it
huge gaps
but fair game, he used his assets to secure deals, and can be solid top 20-30 player, not bad

Exactly. You are more eloquent than I am. Simple. He has way too many wholes. I don't care if he puts a Federer mask or picks his butt like Rafa ... he just does not have what it takes to win slams in this era. Maybe in a few years, he will get lucky, who knows.

Plain and simple. No.
If anyone bothered to watch some of his matches would know this.
