Grigor Dimitrov - tennis' answer to Don Draper?

Grigor Dimitrov played against (someone) yesterday - but had to stop at 8pm due to rain. The match will continue today.

Rafael Nadal is out early

Firstly before we get on with the discussion, commiserations to my boyfriend Rafael Nadal on being knocked out of Wimbledon so early. But you did win the French Open, so..... and as they say that's tennis.I will miss you! I remember you in that spectacular 2008 Wimbledon Final with Federer. Your energy, your natural and instinctive athleticism -  is very attractive!

But it's not as if there are no attractive players left on the court; nay it is still teeming with 'em. To wit:

Ernests Gulbis is cute. And I like men who have a sort of everyday attractiveness. Gulbis is the kind of guy I'd go on a date with, cos he doesn't look too self-involved  - he looks like he'd ask you about yourself, and just be relaxed and fun, and maybe something might develop. Novak Djokovic has the same sort of quality:

But the Grigor Dimitrov looks' offer a sort of inaccessible, bedroom fantasy, to which I am not entirely resistant.

Perhaps calling Grigor the Don Draper of tennis is over-egging it; Grigor - you may well grow into such looks, and develop a salt-and-pepper sophistication with time.

Nevertheless, I eagerly await watching you complete the match at 1pm today.
