However, in addition to confirming his presence at the ATP Masters 1000 in Paris as the top seed of the table, he also managed to eliminate his first obstacle of the tournament, beating Japanese number 38 in the world Yoshihito Nishioka by a double 6-4. It is also worth remembering that after the most important achievement of his short career, where he won the US OPEN, the current number 1 in the world made his best appearance since last week at the ATP 500 in Basel, where he ended up eliminated in the semifinals against the Canadian. Felix Auger Aliassime by two sets to zero.


Grigor Dimitrov

On the other hand, Grigor Dimitrov currently occupies number 28 in the ATP ranking, reaching the best position of his career in November 2017, when he was number 3 in the world. The Bulgarian player is again enjoying a good moment in the current season after five consecutive years without achieving relevant results. As much as his last title win was in 2017, the Bulgarian remains a "thorn in the side" of the leading athletes on the circuit, having reached the semifinals of the ATP 500 Vienna last week. In the current competition, he started beating the Dutch Botic Van de Zandschulp with great difficulties, where despite the victory in straight sets, the triumph was in a double tie-break. In the second round, he won a relatively capital victory against Italian Fabio Fognini, in partials of 6-0 and 7-5, respectively.
