Prior to that semifinal, Dimitrov lost all three matches vs. Murray in straight sets. “At the moment it feels like the best win of my career,” said Dimitrov. “I always thought Andy was an unbelievable player. We all know how he competes. I was really happy with how I played today. I wanted to win badly. He doesn’t give up easily, but I’ll take that win in two tie-breaks.” It was finished at 2:30 a.m. (lasted 2 hours 55 minutes) Dimitrov won tie-breaks 7/5 and 7/3. In the 2nd set tie-break the Bulgarian already led 6:3. In the 3rd set he led 5:3*, then held at love serving to stay in the match so he was 3 & 4 points away from defeat in the sets he won.
