The Bulgarian needed just 21 minutes in the third set to seal the match, with Thiem looking far from his best.Twenty-nine-year-old Dimitrov will now play in the quarter-finals of the Australian Open for the fourth time in his career when he comes up against the surprise packet of the tournament, 114-ranked Russian wildcard Aslan Karatsev on Tuesday.Watch the Australian Open with live streams of every court at 9Now.

So a combination of those three things and a result like that can happen.”It’s a really bad day today, a bad match for my side. But the high from the US Open is long gone.”It was great for some days, but the tennis world goes on so fast, and I think for everybody and also for myself, on court it was forgotten already at the French Open and doesn’t really affect me anymore, especially now that it’s four or five months gone.”For a daily dose of the best of the breaking news and exclusive content from Wide World of Sports, subscribe to our newsletter by clicking here!
