Monte Carlo - Grigor Dimitrov stunned Monte Carlo Masters holder Stan Wawrinka as he beat the Swiss seventh seed 6-1, 6-2 in the third round on Thursday.

The exit of 2014 Australian Open champion Wawrinka came a year after he won his first and only Masters 1000 title here, beating compatriot Roger Federer in the final.

The Swiss was well off his game, finishing in 54 minutes with 41 unforced errors and just four winners against ninth seed Dimitrov.

The ninth-ranked Wawrinka is now in danger of losing his top 10 ranking pace.
