Highlights Grigor Dimitrov vs. Christian Garin BNP Paribas Masters – Paris
After the match, Grigor commented:
“[In the 2nd set] I wanted to go for a little bit more on my shots. There were quite a few taxing games, physically, and I was trying to rush it a little bit. He felt that. He saw that and started exploring different angles and a different game against me.
But I saw it also right away, so he helped me to stay on track and I was close to losing the second set. But I kept pretty solid. I was focused throughout that game (when he was 4-5 down and returning] and the other two. That was a great end.”
