Grigor Dimitrov, a teenage wild card cutie from Bulgaria, pushed Rafa to three sets and really impressed until he started to run out of steam and start cramping. Apparently Grigor is part of the Adidas Player Development Program. At least, I assume so because Sven was watching him in Rotterdam.
Nice that he put on a good show. Even nicer that Rafa was able to pull it out. From all reports it sounds like Rafa's not keeping the best form in Rotterdam. I still think he'll make it to the finals though. The boy just doesn't quit.
Super Mario made a rare appearance today, upsetting #4 seed Gilly in three sets, 64 36 63. It's ok, Gilly. You're still fun to look at, especially with your new bed head look. Cat sound.
