The Bulgarian was up against top seed and US Open champion Daniil Medvedev, who started as a strong favorite. Medvedev looked to be in cruise control up 6-4, 4-1 and all but ready to book a quarter-final spot. 

It was a phenomenal comeback by Dimitrov with the Russian dropping eight games in a row and the Bulgarian claiming the second set 6-4 and then closing out the third set 6-3 for the biggest upset of the tournament thus far and booking a place in the final eight and Miami Open winner Hubert Hurkacz.

Down a set against Hurkacz, Dimitrov came back to level the match and then was up 5-3 serving for the match when the Pole broke back taking the match to a final set tiebreak.
