Stan in three hopefully, if he plays like in Monte Carlo he should retire from tennis.
You already entered Ruinsville? Even before the match? :lol:Stan in three hopefully, if he plays like in Monte Carlo he should retire from tennis.
You clearly didn't saw they're last match :spit::spit:You already entered Ruinsville? Even before the match? :lol:
Dimitrov is a bad matchup for Wawrinka: fellow one handed, but with more versatility and hands.
But clay is the better surface for him to ignore this matchup advantage and dominante with his most powerful game, specially from the backhand side.
Could go either way, 50-50 match if Wawrinka plays well. If he plays like yesterday against Sousa, he will lose easily again.
Grigor to pick up where he left off last time and the time before that. Grigor in two. :yeah:
NID that ShanksBboy would be the one to open this thread with a dumb poll option for Grigor. His obsession with Grigor grows more unhealthy by the day.
Unfortunately, the FH DTL shot is not clicking lately or at least he refrains from using it.I didn't watch Stan's second round match so I am not position to comment about his form. As I said before Fognini match Dimitrov's form is very solid, he's really finding some nice range ground strokes lately, first spot serve is kicking. He just scored a very impressive win over Nadullslayer Fog and also manhandled Stan in Mickey Carlo. He should not ask more. Having said that Dimitrov's extraordinary ability to go for down the line shots especially from forehand wing in neutral rallies troubles Stan plus his excellent slice works as rhythm breaker in cross backhand rallies and allows him to open court with forehand. He definitely have some matchup advantage here.
60-40 match for Dimitrov imo if Stan comes all guns blazing otherwise it will routine win for young Bulgarian.
i do give Stan a little edge, but how much would you suggest? It's very close to 50-50, mainly coz of Stan's questionable form and their recent match.I'm surprised almost none gives Stan at least a little edge, no way this should be a 50-50 thing at this moment in time.
I'd make Stan a 1.65ish shot so 60%ish. Happy to take Stan at 1.95, not gonna complaini do give Stan a little edge, but how much would you suggest? It's very close to 50-50, mainly coz of Stan's questionable form and their recent match.
You couldn't give too much edge to Stan here either, it's similar to the Fognini situation. One knows that best Fog would be fave against Dimitrov on clay, but you never know when he shows up.
Today he was close to his better tennis and still lost, so maybe we're underestimating Dimitrov?
Bookies have it almost on par, very slim advantage Stan, which is correct imo.
