Today is Dimitrov showing who the true world no #3 is
eh, Roddick was grinding for a set and a bit. Then completely flipped the switch. Nadal didn't know what hit him.eh even in Miami he was grinding with Nadal for a fair bit but still won with the serve. Fairly shocking match. Dubai 08 is when he punked Nadal and Djokovic.
Should have stayed with both Reebok and Gilbert.I have fond memories of that Miami match. It was like a switch flipped at 4-3 in the second and he thought he was rocking Reebok instead of Lacoste.
My god...do you people know what footwork is? Nadal moves way better than Dimitrov despite his age. Federer's footwork is still better, maybe his court coverage has declined to the point where you could say Dimitrov.Dimitrov is arguably the best mover on tour currently
Nadal definitely needs to work more to win the neutral rallies and these are the majority of shots the players are engaged in when they face Nadal. This is not grass and Kyrgios cannot rely mostly on his serve, he needs to work and run a lot, and I'm not sure if he has the ability to outlast Nadal. Dimitrov, on the other hand, has proven that he can go toe to toe with Nadal and he'll definitely exhaust him more. The Beijing final showed me that Nadal can wait for Nick's serve 5 meters behind the baseline and still have enough time to chase every ball down and it involves Nick in the types of points he doesn't want to play.I really wish I could believe that, but I'm doubting it. Dimitrov has really been horrible vs the big Three players when it matters. He played Nadal tough at the AO last year but unfortunately, he still lost. I still believe that an on fire Kyrgios would have the better shot vs Nadal.
