VS
Is he (Federer) your biggest idol?

It's insanity what he achieved and how he now fought back and how much he did for the sport. But I don't want to call him idol. I can't say he is my idol and then maybe I play in three weeks against him. No, there are no idols anymore.
First ever grass match for Dominic, we're gonna see what's going on. I think it will be his worst surface, but there's little you can say about it at this point.

Thiem has a chance for an upset if he wins this, Tsonga has been so poor this year and will be his first match on grass...

There is not a single reason at all why Thiem shouldnt be even better on grass than on Clay

There are plenty of reasons. Serve is lacking, movement not ideal, return is lacking, backhand preparation is not ideal.

Domi's début on grass is here!

Very mild draw, Goffin is going nowhere, last two losses to Johnson (on clay lol) and Stefano Travaglia, the #258 :lol:
Will be interesting to see how he adapts to the surface, but it's very winnable.
Thiem in 2, then.

i think grass is going to be dominic's worst surface now that im able to think about it. david will probably win this one in 3

Well, he had a bad day on that day and he lead 5-3 in the third set (I think) and choked it away.

On Grass I think Goffin will win though, at least if Dominic serves like he did against Rafa.
