Harrison posts breakthrough win, Dimitrov breaks racket

The theme–or a theme–of the 2015 ATP campaign is streak-breaking. Another one ended on Wednesday in Acapulco, where Ryan Harrison had been 0-22 against top-10 opponents heading into second-round action.

0-23 he is not.

Harrison scored the biggest win of his career–ranking-wise, at least–by upsetting Grigor Dimitrov 7-5, 4-6, 6-0 at the Abierto Mexicano Telcel. The 22-year-old American needed one hour and 49 minutes to book a spot in the quarterfinals and post multiple main-draw victories as a qualifier in a second consecutive event (previously did so in Memphis).

“I feel good,” Harrison assured. “I got into qualies as an alternate, and obviously here we are now. It’s crazy how things work…. I want to be the best tennis player in the world. It’s one of those things where you care about what you’re doing, you love what you’re doing and you want to be the best.”

Once touted as having the potential to be No. 1 in this sport, Dimitrov is in the midst of a borderline slump. The 10th-ranked Bulgarian is just 6-4 on the year and has now endured second-round losses in consecutive tournaments (previously in Rotterdam).

Dimitrov’s frustration boiled over after losing the first set to Harrison despite serving for it at 5-4.


“It’s a bad loss for me,” Dimitrov lamented. It happens. It’s just the but best of luck to Ryan in the upcoming rounds.”

There is a little more branding on the PRC200. Firstly, Burberry handbags the 6 oclock sub-dial sports a basketball image in grey. Additionally, the pushers are edged with red (top) and blue (bottom), Breitling Replica Watches UK which is, to me, the coolest thing.
