Paris - Fourth seed Grigor Dimitrov was knocked out of the French Open in the third round by Fernando Verdasco on Friday, with the Spaniard winning 7-6 (7/4), 6-2, 6-4.

Bulgarian Dimitrov, a two-time Grand Slam semi-finalist, has still never reached the second week at Roland Garros in eight attempts.

The 34-year-old Verdasco will next face either his compatriot Roberto Bautista Agut or former champion Novak Djokovic for a quarter-final spot.

It is the seventh time the world No 35 has reached the French Open fourth round, but it is the only Grand Slam tournament where he is yet to make the last eight.
