Good match for Grigor overall. Solid from the back with some nice passing shots, serve was a bit inconsistent and that prevented him from winning routinely (e.g. 6-4 6-3). ERV served well but some of his volleys were :facepalm:. All in all, a good win.

Didn't watch the match but know Dmitrov had a bit of a slip in set one before battling through the tiebreak. Sounded more comfortable in set two. Think if he cuts out the inconsistency he will make week two of Wimbledon and have a chance of winning Queens.

Good match, good serving - 15 aces, 65%, but vulnerable on 2nd serve. The usual sloppy service game forced him to go to TB. But all in all solid day in the office.
No net play, happy to rally from the base line and feeding on UE or an occasional pass. Hardly tournament winning form. Should get to SF, on paper.

Solid match from Grigor apart from getting broken when he served for the set. He really upped his level in the 2nd set, getting 76% of 1st serve in and winning 89% of points on it. He will to serve like that if he's to do well on grass. Good to see him in another QF and he should be the favourite to beat either Niemenen or Dolgopolov. :yeah:

Hardly watchable because of the awful stream. Hopefully won't have to play a match on Court 1 at Queen's again.

The thing I like the most in this match was Dimitrov playing an entire set without slipping or falling in the court. He returned pretty well, should've finished at 6-3, but, well, those things happen. ERV played pretty well in that game too. It's been a while since he wasn't broken serving for a set.

Didn't watched the 2nd set though.

Ow, and #12 seed secured for Wimbledon I believe. :cool:
