"Dimitrov won. Nadal won. Everyone at RLA won. These kind of matches lift our sport up onto its shoulders. They are a gift we can enjoy every single day of the year." wrote Craig O'Shannessy, Australian Open Expert "It was an epic encounter that could have easily seen Dimitrov finish the victor. In fact, the Bulgarian arguably played the match of his life, but walked away with a loss. Tough loss."
Grigor Dimitrov won this 10th match since the beginning of the new season. He dominated No 11 David Goffin of Belgium 6-3 6-2 6-4 on Wednesday morning to reach the semifinals of Australian Open. It will be his second Grand Slam semifinal after Wimbledon in 2014 when he lost to then No 2 Novak Djokovic.
Novak Djokovic made an immense statement in his bid to rule men's tennis again when he defeated Andy Murray, the man who deposed him as world number one, 6-3 5-7 6-4 in an epic Qatar Open final in Doha on Saturday.
