Dimitrov vs Dimitrov (By: Stanioooo)

Welcome to everyone after a long break!

I will start with something which is really tempting me for a long time- I predict a title for Grigor Dimitrov in Brisbane. The odds in bet365 are good- 3.00 and the main contenders for the title dropped out one by one. Andy Murray and Rafa Nadal will miss the tournament after they still don't feel comfortable after the injuries. Grigor is seeded as number 1 in this tournament and if you see the draw there are two players who can be real threat to him-Milos Raonic and Nick Kyrgios. I don't think Milos will be in top form after such a long period of time without matches. Alex De Minaur can cause him a lot of problems in the start of the tournament, cause he is really talanted Ausie. Nick is always playing good in Australia and he can be the biggest problem in front of Grigor. We know that Nick doesn't play too serious in some tournaments but when the courts are in Australia, he can be really tough opponent.

Last year Grigor succeeded to win the title here in Brisbane with a lot of convincing wins against top opponents like Nishikori, Thiem and Raonic. Now the situation is totally different and most of the big names don't play in this tournament, so this is a good chance for the top seeded player. Everyone knows what was the end of the last season for Grigor- he won the final tournament in London, claiming 1500 points with 5/5 wins, He is number 3 in the world, his highest ranking in the career and is full of confidence. He made a great preparation for the new season in Monaco and in the USA and his ambitions for the new season are even higher- he wants a title from the Grand Slam and why not in the next 2/3 years to see him in the top place of the ranking.

Grigor is always on fire in Australia and only players like Nadal and Federer succeeded to beat him+ the loss in the epic final in Sydney against Troicki. The draw looks good for Grigor, his first opponents look absolutely vincible, so I expect at least SF of final for Grigor, but I believe he can defend his title here. He has one match in Brisbane this season with Harrison in doubles. They beat Hewitt and Thompson.

The only negative thing I can point about Grigor is that he has never succeeded to defend his previous titles-in Stockholm, Acapulco and Queen's club. I believe he will change that these weeks in Australia and then in Sofia at home ground!

Hi Stan! Remember me? As I remember you keeped jinxing me about my tenis tips. It was about Schwartzman and his statut of clay courter. He played better even in indoors than on clay. I want to start a trash chat now about it, what is your reply?

Man, why do you want to do this? Everybody knows that Schwartzman is much better and dangerous when he plays on clay courts than on hard courts. He is short and it's advantage to have the opportunity to slide on clay courts when he chases the ball. He proved that brilliantly in France(Roland Garros) against Djokovic.The clay-court tournaments where participate the best tennis players are much lower than these one on hard courts.

When we talk about Schwartzman- he is improving his performance on hard courts, I really like him and his spirit on the court. But everyone will see the fear when they face him on clay courts, not on hard. Not by accident his only title was in Istanbul on clay courts.

Gl, mate!

This still doesn't allows you to put me on your knees. You got alot of tongue for a half-russian kid and back then, as I remember, Schwartzman was at his first 1-2 matches on hard and your argument was based fully on him not EVER going to do something on Donaldson BECAUSE HE WILL DIE AS A CLAY COURTER. So dont try to fake all the people here saying that he has a great spirit and chasing the ball great.

Schwartzman would've never reached this atp place without improving the same skills he had just because the surface changed.

Anyway, I dont know why I even bother that much. It is clearly trash chat is in your blood and kids like you cannot see hard surfaces for clay courters, like most average tipster.

Gl to you also, this is my last reply here.

You started all of this, man..I posted a tip about Grigor and you blame me for something happened maybe half an year ago like a kid.. I just expressed my opinion! Stop answering to my tips, please! I don't want to have nothing in common with naive and nasty people who are chasing for attention.. and at last- I always express my opinion, if you think this can be taken as a trash chat, okay, but you are wrong.
