Grigor Dimitrov missed his chance to play for the first time in the main draw of ATP Masters in Monte Carlo. In the second round of the qualifications No 70 Mikhail Kukushkin of Kazakhstan defeated Grigor Dimitrov 6-4 7-5. This was a revenge for Kukushkin after the loss by Dimitrov about 2 weeks ago. Kukushkin succeeded to win 2 of the 6 break point chances while Dimitrov took none of 8 chances as 4 of them were set balls.

With the points gained in the first round Dimitrov would move up to No 84 in the ranking.

Next week Dimitrov will play at ATP 250 tournament in the Romanian capital Bucharest. So far Dimitrov is the qualifications entry list but there is a chance to start in the main draw if enough players withdraw.
