Bulgarian rising star Grigor Dimitrov defeated German Florian Mayer in straight sets to reach the quarter finals of the Monte Carlo Masters on Thursday.

The youngster took a step nearer to entering top 30 for the first time in his career feat by recording a 6-2 6-4 win over Mayer.

Dimitrov needed just an hour and 17 minutes to seal the win.

He will now play Rafael Nadal, who cruised past Philipp Kohlschreiber 6-2, 6-4 on Thursday.

The Bulgarian will face Nadal for the second time, having lost to the 11-time major champion four years ago in Rotterdam.
