Djokovic vs Dimitrov
2nd round in ATP Queen's and a match between Novak Djokovic and Grigor Dimitrov.
Can talk so much things about Grigor and Novak, but really prefer to pay more attention to the pick I chose and it's Novak to win at least with 3 games difference in the match. These guys have only one match till the end of 2014 and it was Djokovic's win in Paris 2016 in three sets. Novak looks closer and closer to his previous form, played excellent and focused tennis in the start against John Millman, while Grigor...
Grigor didn't improve anything since the beginning of the season. OK, he had shoulder problem in Australia and maybe that reflected to his loss against Edmund in the QF in Australian Open, but what happened later? Early exits in most of the tours, combined with one SF in Monte Carlo against Rafa. That's all! But he is part of top 5 in the ranking, that results are absolutely unacceptable if you want to be part of the best players in the tour! He continues to make weak service games in the most inappropriate time combined with a lot of unforced errors and especially DOUBLE FAULTS... Nothing changed during the season..I really start to think he needs a new coach who can give him fresh advices and how to reduce the mistakes on serve. They just reached their peak with Valverdu in ATP London finals with the title Grigor won in the end of 2017. In his first grass court match against Damir Dzumhur Grigor didn't convince me he can do something good as achievement in ATP Queen's. He won in three sets 6:3 6:7 6:3, but Djokovic is not Dzumhur, especially as an opponent on grass. In the tiebreak in the 2nd set, Grigor was totally unconcentrated and looked like he hasn't got any plan how to win it. He was like a shadow. I don't want to look this Grigor on the court, he can be so much better and I am sure he will fix the problems sooner or later and will start to play with the desire, precision and aggression he is capable of, but not now, not against Djokovic. I think Djokovic's chances to win in straight sets are very high, but don't think if he did it, it will be in two tiebreaks, so.. much better option for me is to play Djokovic to win with 3 games difference, which will be enough for the win.
