Fernando Verdasco is the Opponent of Grigor Dimitrov at the Start of China Open

27 Sep 2014
Grigor Dimitrov is seeded No 5 of the main draw of ATP 500 tournament in the Chinese capital Beijing. He will start against Fernando Verdasco of Spain who is currently No 33 in the tennis world ranking. The 30-years-old Verdasco's highest rank was No 7 reached in 2009.

Verdasco beat Dimitrov in the only official match they played - in the semifinal in Bastad, Sweden, in 2013. In exhibition tournament in Australia in January this year Verdasco defeated Dimitrov again.

It is 3rd participation of Dimitrov at China Open. In 2011 he lost to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the first round. His 2013 participation was not lucky either - he lost in the first round to Roberto Bautista-Agut.

The potential second round opponents of Grigor in this year`s edition are Julien Benneteau and Pablo Andujar. Novak Djokovic is the first seeded player Dimitrov would play if he reached the quarter-finals.

The other 2 seeded players in the upper part of the draw are Marin Cilic and Andy Murray. No 2 Rafael Nadal leads the lower part of the draw, Tomas Berdych, Ernests Gulbis and John Isner are the other seeded players in that half.
