Grigor Dimitrov reached the semi-finals at Indian Wells

“If he played like that, he would win the championship,” said Daniil Medvedev after losing to Grigor Dimitrov in the round of 16 at the ATP Masters 1000 event in Indian Wells. After the Bulgarian’s quarter-final match, the winner’s header could go on at the US Open, as the 30-year-old defeated world number 12 Hubert Hurkacz in a thrilling match with 3:6, 6:4, 7:6 (2 ).

Dimitrov, who had previously won the match in the third round with a score of 5:3, came from behind for the second consecutive time and could look forward to a one-day break before the semi-finals on Saturday. However, Hurkacz had to bury hope for his second title in the tournament’s second highest class. At the beginning of April, the 24-year-old triumphed in Miami.

In the semi-finals, Dimitrov faces Cameron Nouri. The Briton beat Diego Schwartzman smoothly 6-0, 6-2 and qualified for the semi-finals of the ATP Masters 1000 event for the first time in his career. Next week, Nouri will replace Dan Evans as Britain’s number one and for the first time belong to the world’s top 20, regardless of further performances at Indian Wells.

The other semi-finalists will not be determined until Friday (local time). Stefanos Tsitsipas meets Nikoloz Basilashvili in the quarter-finals, Alexander Zverev competes with Taylor Fritz.
