M1000 Monte Carlo - Grigor Dimitrov vs. [3] Rafael Nadal
 
Will Dimitrov prove that the single handed backhand is still useful in today's game? Will he show that he can be a future #1 by making on of the biggest upsets ever? Will baby Fed avenge his father? Or will Nadal crush him like he does with pretty much everyone on clay?

class shall win

I think Grigor is due and will pull off the upset. I have not been impressed with the way Nadal has been playing at all.

Steve0904 04-18-2013 03:40 PM

I'm guessing the Dimitrov in 2 vote was cast by Forza? Maybe?

forzamilan90 04-18-2013 03:40 PM

It's not the popular opinion but I have faith...
lol just realized I said that, while having a Faith avatar

Can anyone tell me when (US eastern time) this will be played during? I'll be likely at work, but will still be following discussion on the forums.

You never are. It doesn't matter, this is Monte Carlo.

My apologies to Grigor, just saw him say that he doesn't want to be compared to Federer anymore, which I can understand. It's not easy being compared to the GOAT at 21 when you haven't really won anything yet.

Did you watch Nadal's match today? He was awful out there.

Dimitrov is due for a win over a top 4 player but it won't be here. This tournament is Nadal completely in his element, and it will take someone much better than Dimitrov to stop him.

Man I feel so bad for doing this but I had to go with Nadal in 2.

I don't have much faith in our man tomorrow. :(

Ah well, at least he can go forward from here on.

PS: People need to stop calling him baby Fed. Grigor has said himself (in Bulgarian interviews) that he doesn't like being called a clone. He has his own style.

forzamilan90 04-18-2013 04:21 PM

lol I have a horrible track record of guessing right on polls, like every year who's winning the French, you can guess who I vote for regardless of who the favorite is...I just go with what "I want to happen"

Towser83 04-18-2013 04:23 PM

Hopefully Dimitrov's time will come, but i don't see it being here.I will just be pleased if he manages to give Nadal a match. I might watch this one.

Now there's a surprise. I really want to see Nadal play Rosol again so I can see you predict a Nadal win. Erm don't you go on all the time about how over rated Dimitrov is?

Unless he can hit as hard as Rosol/Soderling consistently (which he can't especially off the backhand side) I don't see how he can threaten Nadal.

RELAX, Clarky. :)

All we need is some bees to storm the field...or another banana accident...it can happen

Nadal will most likely win in straights, but the cool thing is that it's obvious Dimitrov has a (small) chance. Not many Nadal matches on clay where you can say the other guy has any real chance at all.
