Novak Djokovic will be Grigor Dimitrov’s opponent in tomorrow’s final of the “Masters” tournament in Paris.
The Serbian leader in the ATP world rankings dealt with one of Grisho’s best friends in the Tour – Andrei Rublev and dealt with the Russian in three sets after 5:7, 7:6(3) and 7:5. Nole is a true black cat for the hometown star, as Grigor has only one win against him so far.

Jokera broke his opponent in the first game, but Rublev returned the favor to level at 1-1, then missed three break chances in the eighth game, but still managed to take a set lead at 7-5.
The second part was decided in a tiebreak after neither of them managed to make a breakthrough. In the decisive part, the experienced Serbian did as only he can – he raised the tempo and leveled the sets after 7:6(3), and then he came to a complete turnaround.
The 36-year-old veteran pressed his opponent more and more and deservedly took the victory after 7:5 in the third part.
Tomorrow at 16:00 Grigor and Nole will play against each other for the thirteenth time. In their twelve meetings so far, Grišo has only one success, and the remaining eleven are for the Serbian legend.
