Grigor Dimitrov will have to fight against an ace machine in another match.

In the 1/4-final of the “Masters 1000” tournament in Paris, the Bulgarian tennis star played against Hubert Hurkach, against whom he has 3 wins from 3 meetings. However, the tall Pole has hit 1,012 straight points so far and is the first with over 1,000 aces in a season since John Isner and Reilly Opelka in 2019.

Dimitrov will be looking for his 40th win of the season. He hasn’t done it since 2017, when he went 49:19, won the ATP Finals and finished as No. 3 in the world rankings.
