Anyone see that insane tweener half-volley from Dimitrov a break point down? Won him the point...
4-3 Grigor. Going with serve as far as I can make out (live score facility).
Some ridiculous moonballing going on. Not working for Grigor
Verdy went two games ahead, then Prime pulled it back. Both players started terribly though - the match has found its rhythm now.
Either a straight sets win for Dimitrov or Verdasco in 3. Don't think Dimitrov is steady enough to pull off a 3 set victory against a quality opponent.
Verdasco's FH is a thing of beauty.
Grigor has no idea what to do when they are rallying from the baseline
Baby Fed screwed up at the net, 3 SPs for Nando.
Dimitrov nets the BH, set for Verdasco.
dimitrov is playin so c rap :lol: :lol:
Seems a hard-fought first set.
Poor tiebreak from Dimitrov. Can't see him winning now
Grigor rallying a lot better this set
Prime Time breaks. 4-3 in the second. Decent stuff, but Nando threw a few points away
Verdasco breaks back as Grigor was serving for it. Some excellent tennis has broken out in the last few games
Baby Fed getting outgunned when serving for the set.
dimitrov broke again, 6/5 serving
Now Dimi breaks. Will serve for it again
Yes! Takes the second!
I hope Verdasco wins the tournament
dasco deserves this match
Verdy 4-1 up in the second set. Baby Fed's level has dropped by some distance
As with just about every Dimitrov game, the 5 minute highlights will be worth watching. He's hit some absolutely beautiful shots today
Grigor breaks back so we're back on serve.
Terrible from Verdy, just woeful hitting. 4-3 back on serve now.
Would be nice of Dimitrov to prove me wrong but I still give the advantage to Verdasco.
Not even club level now, from either player
Nervous now...come on Grigor. 5-4 down, on serve.
This is some sloooow clay.
Match point Verdasco.
GSM Verdasco. Gutted.
The commentator kept describing this double fault , error strewn match as spectacular...and lastly epic. ????
It was none of these IMO.
I guess I called it. Either way, Dimitrov defended his 90 points, job done as far as that's concerned. Not many positives to take away with him eh?
that's his problem, to me he looks he wants to show beautiful tennis, that's nice for the crowds but he should learn how to win a match the effective way
to be honest, i watched a couple of matches this week and the surface seems to be damn slow, maybe explains why Berdych lost yesterday
Verdasco can split the cost of the effective ways class and sign up with Dimitrov.
by the way did i tell you i'm a Berlocq fan ?
now you know :lol:
Playing now, 1 set up vs De Bakker
Berlocq just broke, de Bakker broke also (his racket :lol: :lol: )
7/5 5/3 VAMOS BERCLOQ
this clay is very slow, i'm sure Carlos can do it for a first title he deserves
So I went to see this match.. Forst time seeing "BabyFed" play and must say I was kinda disappointed after all the buzz around him. Don't know if it was just today, but his backhand really needs work. Moonballs or slice...
Match was quite messy.. A lot of DF's from both players..
nice to have your feedback, i also watched the match (on my computer :lol: ) and i had the same feeling, Dimitrov for me is nothing special, but the clay seems to be very slow, hence the moonballs and stuff :lol:
Yup, I noticed that the court seemed pretty slow. Verdasco was just pounding away on Grigors backhand. So in that way, he could be BabyFed
I have to say that Verdasco also is very inconsistent. He almost threw the match away after being up 4-1 in third set. And it wasn't because Grigor played well. He let Grigor back in with DF's and unforced errors.
Nice day though and a nice tournament. And the weather was perfect.
i read somewhere that Bastad was the favourite tournaments of most players, might be cool to be there
Someone posted pictures last year, I believe, and it looks absolutely stunning. I too want to visit this tournament.
It's absolutely beatiful here. Someone sold me a ticket today for much cheaper, doubted her, and asked her to follow me in to validate the ticket. AND IT WAS REAL! I'll post some pics this time as well. Looking forward to seeing Verdasco play. Anyone in Båstad by the way?
Oh God, this place is wonderful.
Vamos Carlos!!!! :lol: :lol:
Berlocq and the moonballs :lol:
