Grigor Dimitrov beat No 57 American Jared Donaldson in 4 hours and 20 minutes five-set match 6-7(2) 6-4 4-6 6-4 10-8. This was Grigor's 50th win at Grand Slam tournaments. Dimitrov advanced to the third round of Roland Garros for the 3rd time in his career. The 4th seeded Bulgarian will have the chance to pass to the 4th round in a match against No 35 Fernando Verdasco of Spain.

“It's great to win a match in five sets. I think it stays with you, you keep it, and especially on clay and out here at [Roland Garros]... It was one of those matches that I didn't play my best, but I managed a way to win. And when one thing wasn't going well, the physical part was great,” Dimitrov said.

Grigor Dimitrov was to play the Serbian Victor Troicki in the first round of Roland Garros, the second Grand Slam tournament of the year. Only one hour before the match it was announced that Troicki withdrew due to injury and the lucky loser Mohamed Safwat of Egypt took is his place. Grigor Dimitrov needed a bit more than two hours to beat the Egyptian three sets 6-1 6-4 7-6(1).

“We spent a bit of time [together] when we played juniors,” revealed Dimitrov. “I [have] known him for quite some time. He's a great guy.”

The 4th seeded Grigor Dimitrov hit 31 winners and won 88 per cent of his first serve points.

This was Dimitrov's 49th Grand Slam tournament win (49 - 30 win/loss ratio). Roland Garros is the least successful tournament of the 4 Grands Slams as Dimitrov has only 6 wins here. The rest of the wins are at Australian Open - 20, Wimbledon - 15 and US Open - 8.

In the second round of Roland Garros on Wednesday Grigor Dimitrov will play 57th ranked Jared Donaldson of the USA.
