Dimitrov says goodbye to Fritz and smoothes out Djokovic's debut

The Bulgarian is still in the doldrums this year and could not with the American, which will be measured now with 'Nole' in the tie-breaks (7-6 (8) and 7-6 (4)). Cilic passed before (6-4, 2-6 and 7-6 (0)).


Novak Djokovic will have a placid debut on Tuesday at the Mutua Madrid Open. The one that Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov has given him, who this Monday said goodbye to the Magic Box taken by the American Taylor Fritz, aged 21 and number 57 in the world, a rock in the tie-breaks (7-6 (8)). 7-6 (4)).

Dimitrov, who at the age of 27 does not end up marrying the nickname of 'Baby Federer' that was given to him at the beginning, he is already 46 in the world and has been doing a quite discreet season. He has not managed to pass the quarterfinals reached in Brisbane (an ATP 250, the fourth category of tournaments) in any contest and has fallen before inferior a222222 rivals, like Jordan Thompson in the Round of Miami or Nicolás Jarry in the Round of the Godó, and now against Fritz, who probably has it more complicated against 'Nole'.

For his part Marin Cilic, the ninth seed of the Mutua, suffered against the Slovak Martin Klizan but got the pass to the second round (6-4, 2-6 and 7-6 (0)) . It seemed that the Croatian, number eleven of the ATP and 30 years of age had the match well controlled with 6-4 in the first set, but a combative Klizan emerged with three breaks in the second after giving up his own serve and took the cat overboard In the final quarter there were no breaks and in the tie-break Cilic won with a convincing 7-0 that appointment with another great punch, the German Jan-Lennard Struff, for second round.

También won a game over the other French eccentric Gael Monfils, world number 32 of 32 years old, who won the Italian Andreas Seppi, 67 of the ATP and 35, 6-3 and 6-1. The next rival of Monfils will leave the Goffin-Fucsovics.
