Carlos Alcaraz was a red-hot favorite to seize his first Sunshine Double this 12 months, however neither the punters nor the bookmakers noticed him working right into a red-hot Grigor Dimitrov on Thursday.

The Bulgarian performed devastatingly, coming by way of 6-2, 6-4, in 1 hour and 34 minutes to file his second consecutive win towards Alcaraz after his victory in Shanghai final 12 months.

Pre-match, I made Alcaraz the sturdy favorite however I assumed the nighttime situations would possibly assist Dimitrov a contact as they’d give him a bit extra time on the ball, which is one thing he’s traditionally favored/wanted.

Nonetheless, he didn’t want any of that yesterday. He took the ball tremendous early and stepped in on the returns. His method to going after the ball and shifting ahead was Federer-like, as he fired 24 winners and gained 12 of 16 factors on the internet.

I don’t suppose I’ve ever seen Dimitrov play like that, maybe glimpses on the Australian Open towards Nadal, nevertheless it was a superb efficiency from begin to end and jogged my memory of Fededer’s play in 2017. Epic.

I believe general, to win towards him, it’s a must to play at your finest; that’s simply how it’s. I got here into the match very centered, and I believe it was extraordinarily clear what to do. Generally, simplicity is genius. It’s very, very laborious to do it, particularly if you play towards an opponent like that, however I used to be actually in a position to dictate the sport and browse the sport somewhat bit higher than final time. Total, I believe a terrific match on my finish and I’m simply completely satisfied I completed in straight units. I used to be utilizing each alternative I had. I believe each second serve I had, I used to be attacking it. I used to be ensuring I used to be placing him in a really tough place. I needed to hold being aggressive, come to the online, transfer the ball round and never let him hit. Dimitrov on how he took aside the world primary.

He performed wonderful tennis, virtually good. I couldn’t discover options, a approach to make him really feel uncomfortable on the courtroom. It was a terrific recreation from his aspect. I left the courtroom considering that I most likely needed to change my recreation somewhat bit earlier, however anyway, I really feel like I performed good tennis—not good, however good. However I’ve a variety of frustrations proper now as a result of he made me really feel like I’m 13 years outdated. It was loopy. I used to be speaking to my crew saying I don’t know what to do. I don’t know his weak spot. I don’t know something. Alcaraz on going through Dimitrov in God-mode.
