Grigor Dimitrov will play seed No 2 Kei Nishikori of Japan in the quarterfinals in Brisbane after beating the Australian John Millman in straight sets 6-3 6-4.

“I remember what happened last year... Obviously I thought about that in the past days, since I knew that I had to play against him, and I was just trying to do things that were better than last year,” Dimitrov said.
Dimitrov took the first set 6-3 and reached 4-1 lead in the second set after two breaks, then Millman succeeded to break twice to reach 4-4. Grigor managed to break for the 4th time and took his service game to win the set and the match.
“Full respect to him. He's an unbelievable fighter, as we saw again today, especially in that second set... But I managed to keep my composure really good throughout the whole match, especially at 4-4,” Dimitrov said.

Grigor Dimitrov and Ryan Harrison lost in the first round of the doubles tournament to Rajeev Ram and Joe Salisbury 2-6 5-7.
