Bulgaria's Grigor Dimitrov came from a set down to beat his doubles partner Marcos Baghdatis 6-7 (4), 7-6 (0), 6-3 and book a place in the semifinals of the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament on Friday.

Dimitrov lost the opening set 7-6, but levelled the match by winning the second 7-0 in another tiebreak.

In the decider, the Cypriot fought to recover from 4-2 down and saved a match point in the eighth game to hold serve. However, Dimitrov eventually served the match out after more than two and a half hours at the Ahoy Rotterdam Indoor Sporting Arena.

The talented Bulgarian will face either Juan Martin del Potro or Jarkko Nieminen in his semifinal game.
