The talented Bulgarian sets a quarterfinal clash with Aussie Christopher O’Connell next in northern China.

Dimitrov, who turned pro in 2008, earned his first ATP win in 2009. He has amassed eight titles and over $23 million in prize money over the course of his career, which has seen him become one of the most entertaining and most-adored players on the circuit.

The Bulgarian boasts 33 Top 10 wins, and an impressive 84-52 record at the Grand Slams. 262 of Dimitrov’s 400 wins (262-172, six titles) have come on his best surface, the hard court, but he has also excelled on clay (94-65, one title) and grass (42-31, one title).

Dimitrov is 11th among active ATP players in wins:

Novak Djokovic, 1077
Rafael Nadal, 1068
Andy Murray, 732
Richard Gasquet, 602
Marin Cilic, 582
Stan Wawrinka, 566
Fernando Verdasco, 559
Gael Monfils, 534
Kei Nishikori, 433
Fabio Fognini, 411
Grigor Dimitrov, 400
