    I will be interesting to see how offseason training went for Milos. think he will be a stronger player this year and will be competing for big titles. Milos in 2, dimitrov doesn't have anything to hurt him.

    Raonic has nothing over Gregor's far superior all-court game. Is there a live match link being posted in this thread?

    I'm curious to see how Grigor does after his little mini offseason of work. Thing is though that until he can prove to be a lot more consistent, he stands no chance against these courts, which look awful fast, and Raonic's serve.

    Dimitrov has talent but no consistency, evident with his results on the tour. Milos is just gonna blow him off the court with the aces.

    This online stream is so bad -__- but the match itself isn't too bad which is a plus I guess and wow! Great defense to offense from Dimitrov for his first break! 4-2 1st set :D

    Both guys near perfect when getting first serves in, and defending their 2nds well enough. Dimitrov managed to come up clutch for a break though. I think this will be going 3 though. It'll be interesting to see if Dimitrov has more aces by the end.

    Grigor to serve for the match now. Think he's got this one in the bag.

    Thanks United, very nice match talented Dimitrov demolishing talentless Raonic easily as predicted. LMAO at the trolls who voted for Raonic in the poll.

    Consistently good play from Dimitrov. Disappointing play from Raonic...errors, unreliable serve, he finally started to move around in the final game.

    Get new coach, Milos!

    I was watching this match , sitting at the third row..near the court....what a treat to watch amazing Dimitrov. Most of his shots were sooo hefty and deep and precise compared to Raonic's mis-hitty spinny groundstrokes. Dimitrov's technique on serves and groundstrokes is flawless. His movement was amazing. I did not see any wild shanks from him as his timing is immaculate.

    Raonic needs to improve his movement and groundstroke technique. Even his serves have some flaw in it... he doesnt bend his knee much and seems to arm his serves.

    Dimitrov consistently and confidently hit 180 ++ kph second serves.... this is because his serving fundamental is really good.

    Dimitrov backhand down the line passing shots were out of this world.

    26/26 first serve points for dimitrov, 10 aces..i assume he served out of his mind here but raonic is going nowhere or at least nowhere else than isner is going until he gets his return game going

    querry 37/37 2-3 years ago, last time 100% first serve

    Great start to the new year for Grigor. Hope he gets some momentum going into the AO.

    Now this isn't surprising, Dimitrov has talent and a lot of it if I add.

    Great to see him win and against a quality opponent. Also, he won in the doubles with his partner Nishikori.

    looking at the draw...hopefully Goffin wins his match so we can get the Fed inspired kids' match up, Dimitrov vs Goffin

    Goffin has already lost to Melzer unfortunately. Definitely rooting for Dimitrov now, though I wouldn't mind Baghdatis, Nishikori or Dolgopolov winning either.
