Confident start from Grigor who broke in the first game and was in control of the match from there. His movement and speed were excellent and his groundstrokes were firing nicely. In the 2nd set, he hit one of the best lobs you are likely to see. He won 87% points on 1st serve and in general his serve got him out of some trouble but it still looks a bit unreliable. He serve 3 DF in one game in the 1st set.

In the post match interview, he implied he was not 100% after Covid-19 but he feels his health is on the rise. It will be interesting to see how he holds up when pulled into a longer match as he visibly ran out of steam in the 3rd set last week against Fucsovic who he has a rematch with in the next round. If he serves well and can impose his game as he did today, he should beat Fucsovic, if his serve is a liability like last week and the match drags on, he could be in trouble.

Great to have the real Dimi back on court.
