it doesn't matter whether dimitrov loses in the next round or in the semis.............
Nice to see you back, Start da Game.
And I agree this point. I doubt if Dimitrov expects to rewrite the history books with this win, but for a player trying to do well, beating the world number one is a good achievement in itself. There is no need to maximise it or minimise it. On the day, he outplayed Djokovic. And I agree too that the experience of beating the best players is necessary / helpful in order to develop as a player.
I'm watching the Berdych / Janowicz & Nishikori/Troicki matches, having some time, at last, to watch a spot of live tennis. JJ did well to take the first set but he simply has not been able to do anything of note since then. His focus seems to have gone. Berdych is up a break & serving 4-2.
Nishikori has played some excellent attacking tennis, painting the lines and forcing the first set out of Troicki's grip. He is up a break in the second set , 3-0, and all over the court like a rash. Good stuff from him.
Azarenka looks unassailable here, taking the first set 6-1 & Makarova having to work hard just to hold serve if she can.
