I'm loving this match.
Hear, hear. Still hoping Dimitrov takes this set and we get a third set out of this.
Had a feeling this would be a close match
Can someone summarise? I can't even see the match stats
Is Dimi playing some beautiful stuff?
Great point to start the TB.
6-0 to Dimitrov in the breaker... Surely going to a 3rd set!
EDIT: he takes it 7-0.
Poor TB from Marcos.
TB Bagel. Definitely Goat in waiting.
i hope he plays better in the 3rd... pame !
Is that something like 16 points in a row for Grigor?
triple BP Dimitrov!
baby fed just got 4-7-4-3 points a row right?
and he just yelled the F-bomb.
Dimitrov breaks for 2-0 in the 3d set.
Takes it on the 4th time of asking. Didn't quite pull a Murray
Marcos is playing awful.
Such a high quality match. Aggressive tennis at its finest.
Grigor trying to copy Fed's shanks. Not there yet. Lol
Looks like a good hold for 3-0. Real chance for Dimitrov here
marcos has been playing poorly since 6-5...
i hope he can break back.
Grigor should probably practice ice skating if he plans to keep playing with these shoes. Lol
Was that a baby Fed shank?
Good hold for Grigor after saving two BPs, one game away from the win now.
Yep. Definitely better than the other one.
Great point to bring up MP
Marcos saves it
Great touch from Grigor to reach MP.
Nice touch from Dimitrov to get the MP.
Great win for Grigor! In the top 40 now
Very nice! Maybe del Potro next. How he takes that matchup on will be a good marker of how far he's come and how far he has yet to go...
Nice win from grigor!
Potro not waiting around, 2 breaks, takes the first 6-3 and will open the second.
Anyone able to report on how the first set went?
Pretty dominant set for Delpo. Wasn't threatened on his serve much and Nieminen just seems to lack the firepower to hurt Delpo anywhere.
Second set quiet open? Looks like break opportunities on all but 2 games so far, but stayng with serve..
Jarkko playing much better in the 2nd set. In a lot of Delpo's service games but Delpo is coming up with big aces at crucial moments.
Delpo really is the man. He's got MP, and takes it at the second time. Him vs Dimitrov. Wonder what time that's likely to be, would love to watch that one.
Delpo should take that one in two close sets. 5 and 5 I'd say.
yes, del potro v dimitrov could be a crackerjack match..
btw i think if del potro actually wins the title he will be world no 6 rank above berdych..who will lose SF points from last year as he is not playing (injury).
Would be a good result for Dim I think, if he can remain competitive and push it to that.
Just another reason why Davis Cup is a bad idea.
Benneteau inspired again!
Good first game and the crowd is sure pumped up.
Benne gives Fed trouble. Slightly above average serve. Better BH than average player, and he is not afraid to hit it either. FH can be big. Good volleys and decent return
anyone got a live stream for this? i'm trying to watch it on firstrow but it keeps freezing.
Liking the match so far. Benny actually playing well and so is Federer, so this isn't Wimbly where half of it was ********.
Doesn't seem like an interesting tournament so far, although I'd like to see Del Potro continue his winning streak against Federer like in 2009.
Lush RoS at Benneteau's feet from Rog
I think Benneteau might give federer some trouble, especially if it goes to a tiebreak. Benneteau was only 2 points away from beating federer at Wimbledon.
Winning streak like he had against Nadal in 2009?
