"Every game that Nadal has played with Grigor has been very hard. Grigor is a wonderful tennis player. There are all the elements: serve, forehand, backhand. He moves well on the track. There is no persistence, but he has everything In tennis, when Dimitrov plays well, it's very difficult. But let's not forget that Rafa must first defeat Berdih and Grigor goes through Thiafo. So we have to wait, "says the legend in the media if Grisha has Chances against Rafael Nadal if they meet in the Quarters of Australia Open.
"It's not very good to say it. When I first saw Grigor Dimitrov, I thought that was the future number one in the world. I remember playing for the first time with Raffa in Rotterdam in 2009.

"Look, I do not believe in complicated things. In tennis, you have to put the ball in the field more than your opponent. You have to run. And you do not have to worry when your opponent starts playing better What is the difference between Novak Djokovic and Dimitrov? Both play wonderful, but Djokovic knows that winning the first set is not enough. You need a little more. The same goes for Nadal and Federer. And sometimes , I think Grigor needs a little more time. Technically, I have noticed that sometimes it stops with your feet a little earlier than necessary. Here are the mistakes. Also, let one's legs a little more time. When this happens, it is very difficult to do a good blow. This is my opinion, "said the specialist.
"There will be many good tennis players in Sofia. Khachanov is now the world number 11. You have Acute Baitista, who won in Doha and beat Novak Djokovic. Wawrinka is not at the same level for years, but I think that He will soon begin to play for his best tennis. There was a game that was very tied against Randon in the Australian Open. There will also be Cicipas, which shows great progress. The guarantee is that we will see a great tennis, but I can not say who will win, "said the Christmas uncle of their expectations for the Sofia race.
