Stan Wawrinka will be up against Grigor Dimitrov in the quarterfinal match of the Mexican Open 2020. In what will be the battle of the backhand specialists at Acapulco, it would be interesting to see who comes out on top to reach the semifinal. It will be the 12th encounter between the two, with Stan having a 7-4 lead over the Bulgarian and a win in their last five encounters.
Seeded third, Stan, had a rather easy pre-quarterfinal match as he faced Pedro Martinez. The Swiss won the match 6-4, 6-4 in one hour and 30 minutes, winning 90% of his first-serve points. He will look to continue his record against the 28-year old and make it to the semis.
In his match against Adrian Mannarino, Dimitrov had to use up every ounce of his energy to register the win. After losing the first set 6-7 (8-10), he eased past in the second one and won 6-2. The third set saw him save multiple match points and take the game to the tiebreaker. The 22nd ranked player made no mistake and won the third set 7-6 (7-2) and took the match in two hours and 44 minutes.
