38-year-old legendary Swiss – a living icon of this tournament, first played in the main draw in far 2000 year. Since Roger has missed only one play in 2016 because of injury, recorded in the assets of five titles. And triumphal in the period from 2004 to 2008. After the dominance of Federer was in the finals of 2009 and 2015 and semi-finals of 2010, 2011 and 2014.
Last season, the “Swiss Maestro” unpleasant surprise, losing in the fourth round, the Australian John Millman 6-3, 5-7, 6-7, 6-7.
In 2019, the year Roger has a great performance on hard, having won 27 wins in 30 matches. The assets Federer titles in Dubai and Miami and the final of Indian wells.
In front of the Open championship of the USA the Swiss held one preparatory tournament in Cincinnati, where he unexpectedly dry lost in the 1/8 finals of the Russian ruble.
Not without problems Rog passed, and here the two first circle, having only four sets with Nahalem and Cumhura. Then, with full domination of beat Evans and the Goffin.
The best Bulgarian tennis player in history, first broke through at this tournament in the last eight. Prior to that, Grigor furthest they reached the 1/8 finals in 2014 and 2016. Although, to be honest, specific prerequisites for this success was not, if you look at the results of Dimitrova in the course of this season and especially on the eve of the US Open.
After the herbal segment, the Bulgarian has featured in four tournaments, scoring only one win in five matches.
Here “Prime Time” spent on one meeting less than owed due to the failure of Borna Coric in the second round. Started with wins over Andreas Seppi in four sets. Then dry out with the pole by Majchrzak and Australian De Minoura.
Tennis players are well acquainted with each other. This will be their eighth meeting in history. While Dimitrov never was able to beat Federer.
Six of the previous matches were held on hard courts, the most recent of which last season in the finals of Rotterdam, where Grigor was not able to provide the eminent Swiss decent resistance (2:6, 2:6).
Once the boys were determined the strongest on the grass in 2017, the year in the 1/8 finals of Wimbledon, when Roger won a landslide victory over the Bulgarian 6-4, 6-2, 6-4.
The coefficients and forecast
Bookmakers do not see any intrigue in this quarterfinal pair, putting on the victory of Dimitrov ratio 9.0, on Federer – 1.1. In principle, it was difficult to expect other quotes given the history of confrontation between players, their status on the ATP tour, games and manners of the current form.
I fully support the position of the bookmakers and I think that Roger will not experience special problems in this match, having confidently the semi-finals. Therefore I propose as bids to stop the choice on the option minus the odds on the “fed-Express”. I think Grigor will not be able to provide decent resistance and capitulated in three sets.
