Rock on Grigor! :rocker2:

If DimiGOAT shows up it can be a very very close match with Murray.

Grigor was a little flat in the first two sets but he did enough to win them. 2nd set tiebreak was awful from both players but it can't be easy to play well after a rain break. Grigor stepped it up several gears in the 3rd after savings those BPs and he was a different player from that point. I was impressed that he wasn't just content with a single break but fought back from 40-15 down to break again. He hit some stunning shots in the 3rd and if he can reproduce the form of that set, he has a chance against Murray.

Great to see him in the QF where he belongs. He's had a lot of hype here and played all his matches on Centre and Court 1 so it's great to see him living up to the faith they have placed in him. :yeah:

Such a comfortable R4 match for Dimitrov, hopefully he's finely tuned for Murray. It's time somebody finally burst the Murray bubble and actually gave him a strong game.

Grigor is in the best quarter - he has 500 points to defend till the end of the year doesn't he.
#10 in the Race with a QF at Wimbledon to go - very few points to defend at the US Open where he should get a good draw.

Nice match but I feel bad for him because he's taking on Sir Andrew on his home turf.

Dimitrov served and returned well, but he was too passive in most of the rallies, waiting for Mayer to make mistakes, instead of going for the shots. This won't work against Murray.

As for Leo, he surely has the talent to be a TOP 20, sadly he's too much of headcase. :shrug:

Congrats Grisha :) great grass season for him. Andy should still be a step too far, this year, imo, but he'll give him a good match at the very least.

Leo, well done. I really, really, hope he can build on this week, we desperately need a decent player at non-clay surfaces that is not Delpo, and he could be that player.
