Even if Jerzy Janowicz is currently ranked no. 267, you’ll never know what you find on the other side of the net when you play him. Grigor Dimitrov had an extremely rough start of his campaign in Sofia to beat him 4-6 6-3 7-5 in just over 2 hours.
The crowd won the match. DIMITROV
After the match, Grigor acknowledged the help of his fans to comment
“The crowd won the match today. I had tremendous support, and everything was amazing. I haven’t played at home in a long time, so I’m pumped for each match here and hope I can repeat this tomorrow.”

Next vs. Troicki
Grigor will play Troicki for a place in the semi-final. The head to head is 2-all, but the Serbian defeated him in the last two encounters.
Probably, the good news for Dimitrov is that the seed no.1, Dominic Thiem, has lost already, so in case Grigor reaches the final-4 he will not face the Austrian.
After this match, Grigor has a fantastic 11-1 win-loss record.
