Dimitrov’s appetite for a Grand Slam title win is only getting stronger
Third seed Dominic Thiem was knocked out of the Australian Open in a straight-sets defeat - 6-4, 6-4, 6-0 - to a resurgent Grigor Dimitrov in the fourth round.
In the press conference after the match, Thiem said he was suffering from some physical issues but did not want to elaborate as he dismissed suggestions his performance was a result of the emotional fallout from his victory against Kyrgios.
The 18th seed Dimitrov is inching closer to his 30s and his appetite for a Grand Slam title win is only getting stronger.
In the quarterfinals Dimitrov will face Russian qualifier Aslan Karatsev, who came from two sets down to beat Canadian 20th seed Felix Auger-Aliassime and reach the last eight on his Grand Slam debut.
After the match with Thiem, Grigor gave an exclusive interview for the Bulgarian program on SBS Radio.
