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.
Grigor Dimitrov defeated Rafael Nadal for the first time in his career after 7 previous losses from their first clash in Rotterdam in 2009 until the second round of Swiss Indoor in Basel last year. The first set started with 5 consecutive breaks and Dimitrov reached a 4-2 lead after winning his next service game.
