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
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.
