Grigor and Mischa played a beautiful match in Rotterdam. VIDEO
You always find some time to enjoy a match of Grigor Dimitrov or Mischa Zverev. Both have a beautiful interpretation of the game, and they are never shy to impress the crowd with great shots. Yesterday in Rotterdam, Grigor and Mischa played each other in the first round, and Dimitrov won 6-7 (4) 6-2 6-4. That was lot of fun.
After losing the opener at the breaker, Grigor started to connect extremely well with Zverev’s service to win the 2nd second with a smooth 6-2. The decider had a couple of ups and downs, but eventual it was the Bulgarian to win after breaking Zverev a couple of times.
It’s just another week. DIMITROV
Grigor has just won the most important title of his life last week in in his country, but he knows that he had to immediately switch from a mental point of view if he wants to have a deep run also in Rotterdam. The Bulgarian commented
"It's another week now, another challenge and another opportunity to win. All eyes on that and focusing ahead. I think it’s always difficult when you change your whole atmosphere, with a different court, different balls, which didn’t make it any easier today. I just had to keep on playing and fighting at the level I thought I could do. I’m very pleased to get another win, there were a lot of obstacles out there, and I think I handled it pretty well."
Next vs. Istomin
Grigor will play Djokovic’s conqueror Denis Istomin in the 2nd round. The head to head is 2-0 for Dimitrov. The Bulgarian has already faced Denis 3 weeks ago in Melbourne after he defeated Nole; Dimitrov won 2-6 7-6 (2) 6-2 6-1.
