Dimitrov Rallied Past Goffin after Surviving 0-6 Opening Set

01 Sep 2014
Grigor Dimitrov started the 3rd round match of US Open against David Goffin of Belgium with poor scores in most of the aspects of the play - 31% first service hit and 2-11 winners to unforced errors ratio. All this lead to 0-6 score in the first set. In the second set Dimitrov cleaned up his game and succeeded to take the set. Grigor started the third set with 4-0 lead but a series of errors allowed David Goffin to recover and reach 4-4. Dimitrov made a solid return and broke the service game of Goffin to reach advantage of 1 set. Then Dimitrov needed 20 minutes to take the 4th set after quickly reaching 4-0 lead. So within 2 hours 21 minutes Grigor Dimitrov beat David Goffin 0-6 6-3 6-4 6-1.

In the 4th round Grigor Dimitrov will play Gael Monfils of France, world No 24, No 20 seeded at US Open. On Sunday Monfils defeated his countryman Richard Guasquet in 3 sets. On Tuesday Dimitrov will seek to avenge a first round US Open defeat to Monfils in 2011. In April this year Dimitrov played Monfils in the semi-finals of Bucharest when the Frenchnman retired because of injury and Dimitrov won the tournament title ultimately.
