Grigor Dimitrov
« on: May 02, 2009, 03:44:56 PM »
I noticed that there wasn't a topic about him yet.
I love the guy's style and he has already beaten some top ranked players or has pushed them to 3 sets.
But we haven't seen much of him lately. This topic is basically to discuss everything about him.
Do you know when he's playing a meaningful tournament again?
Why haven't we seen much of him lately? Is it because it's clay season?
What weapons do you think he'll develop?
What does he need to improve?

Post away :D

I don't think many people know a lot about him so it's up to you to educate us on Grigor!  Conchita has done a great thing educating us on Simon in his thread...so now you need to start posting and letting us know about this player! :))

I wish I could but frankly I don't know that much about him either. I was kinda hoping some of the guys over here also knew him.
I've just seen a couple of matches and I loved his playing style (not a surprise since it resembles a lot with Federers) and it's obvious that he has a lot of talent to make it big, so I'm hoping to see more of this guy.

I love Grisha (Dimitrov's nick name). my favorite youngster by far. great technique. he has to improve mentally. that is his biggest weakness IMHO. last time when he was playing Djokovic, a poor guy simply chocked so badly (making 4 DF in a game, serving for the set If I remember correctly) ... and Nole was bellow average, kinda half asleep.

It's hard not to like his game.
Really refreashing to see among so many players with almost no variety at all.

He reeeeaaaaaaallly needs to work on his movement. Once he gets that issue worked out, I expect we would see him in the Top 10, maybe even 5  :ninja:

Rafa is the FIRST to qualify for WTF this year! :D
