Kukushkin had a break point at 2 all to take the lead in the first set, which was not taken. After that game, Dimitrov seemingly dominated the match. Broke for *4-2 in the first set after a long game, broke again to win the set on a double fault, and broke in Kuku's first service game of the second set to take control.

Nine points lost on serve for Dimitrov and good return numbers. Seems like a strong performance overall. Now vs Chela, a great opportunity for the third round here.

One small step for tennis, but one large step for the 91 generation.

Well done Dimitrov. Good win.

Hopefully he builds on this and doesn't turn to shit next round.

Fena? Yeah, right. Gonzo isn't beating someone of Berdych's caliber.

Dimitrov and his fans should focus on beating Chela before jumping to conclusions.

Sit down Pastry, no-one is jumping to any conclusions. Good win for Grigor and his stats were excellent for the match. Hopefully he will gain some confidence from this and beat Chela in the next round. My money's on Grigor to make it to R3.

I think Grigor will make it to the third round too, but no, some of his fans have been writing him in there already, and are excited about Berdych and Dimi, when Dimi hasn't beaten Chela yet. Some of his fans have too high expectations. I just want to see him do what he needs to do, beat Chela, solidify a top 100 ranking, and go from there.

Yeah like you picking Monaco to beat Monfils :superlol:
He will. You're not objective enough as a fan to make reasonable predictions about Monfils, or most Frenchmen.

Your the one that is not objective always picking against Monfils. Monaco has no weapons whatsoever does he have wins over Nadal and Federer? Dont think so has he ever been in the Top 10 or made four GS QFs like Gael or been in 2 MS Finals. Idiot.

I'm on flyboy's side here. This is Monfils' first tournament back since Montpellier I think which was in the 1st week of February. He will be rusty for sure and Monaco isn't an easy guy to play, he's a bit of a poor man's Ferrer and will make Monfils work for every point especially if the surface is as slow as last year (although there are some rumours about it being faster you know).
Monfils could also lose to Gulbis if he beats Bubka first and has one of his days where he actually cares about winning.

And no, I'm certainly NOT a Monfils hater, I like him at least when he's playing offensively (like against Fed @Bercy in 2010 and Nadal @Doha this year) and doesn't clown around all the time. I'm just realistic, nothing more. You just can't take anything for granted when you play your first tournament after a 7 week or sth like that break.

You're talking nonsense as usual. I post in the Grigot forum a lot more than you do and his fans aren't taking the next match against Chela for granted especially given Grigor's recent form. It's perfectly normal though to see the next match as winnable and get excited about the prospect of your favourite player possibly competing against one of the top 10. That's what being a fan is all about.

We can't all be as boring and negative as you. :p
