Grigor is an opportunist and a nicer version of Sloane...at least he is servicing pova when she gets horny on tour.

RE: Maria & Grigor
No wonder Grigor is playing great - that's known as the Verdasco Effect. Used to be the Stepanek Effekt, but that was too broad a definition. Works in reverse on men: Ivanovic slumped and Grigor has a bounce in his step. Go figger.

By the way, none of this is to be confused with the McIlroy Effect, which is a mystery to all admirers of Caro... Heart

[split] Has Grigor showed today that he might be the future of tennis ?
Will Grigor take inspiration from his GF and wins a few slams soon?

The McIllroy effect is not much to write home about I'm afraid. But the Caro effect is quite something. Since they became an item Rory has been number one at one point and he's won a major where he was a mile ahead of everyone else.

Actually I disagree with you. There many examples when for an athlete,. happiness off the court translates to better results. And i must say, coincidence or not, Grigor started to play significantly better since with Maria. I posted that photo for a reason.

We'll so far he doesn't seem affected. After booting Djoker, he takes the opening set off Stan 6-3.

Yeah that's it. The blokes get affected positively. Huge ego boost and their career goes into overdrive.

I doubt Maria can make any men happy....I'm assuming Grigor is a real men; not sure of the dynamics in Bulgaria but I hope it hasn't been westernized like the rest of the world.

Maria is the girl you take when the lights are on and you find yourself lonely and drunk.
