First quarter-final of an ATP US Open Grand Slam, USA (hard). This will be a very exciting match between the Mastro and a Bulgarian, who were often compared to Roger earlier in his career. To have more insights on this ATP Roger Federer vs Grigor Dimitrov match, please check out the preview below.
37 years old, currently 3rd ranked Federer without a doubt will go down to history books as one of the greatest players of all time. Not only has he been winning almost everything for over a decade. But he’s also doing the same while being 37 years old. 9/2 on clay and 27/3 on the hard surface this season, what translates to over 85% win rate. It seems like Federer needed some time to adjust on US Open’s court and after giving away a set in first 2 matches against S. Nagal and D. Dzumhur, Federer was unstoppable in other 2 matches and swept D. Goffin and D. Evans away in straight sets.
Roger has dropped out of US Open in R16 last year, which means that every victory this year adds up a lot of points to his overall score.
28 years old, currently 78th ranked Bulgarian is having one of the worst years of his career. Grigor suffered from injuries this year what led to not being able to participate at more tournaments and to play at the level he’s used to. After dropping out in first round in his last 3 tournaments before entering this one, Dimitrov now has won 4 matches in a row and is finally looking healthy and playing great tennis. He’s only lost a single set to A. Seppi throughout all 4 of his matches. Dimitrov has also defeated B. Coric, K. Majchrzak and A. De Minaur in straight sets.
Grigor Dimitrov has dropped out of last year’s US Open in the first round and he’s already passed his previous result by a lot.
