Bulgaria's top tennis player Grigor Dimitrov showed excellent skills and defeated France's Jill Simon by 6-1, 6-3 in the first round of the Cincinnati Masters with a prize fund of $ 4 362 385.

The match lasted a total of 76 minutes and the Bulgarian player from Haskovo marked a third win out of a total of nine games against Simon. 

Dimitrov made no service game errors but managed to counterattack quite effectively, winning his opponent's serve four times. 

In the second round, Dimitrov will be facing either Spain's Feliciano Lopez or the German Misha Zverev. In case he goes on to the 1/8 finals, he could be facing the Swiss Stan Wawrinka.

The leader in the tournament unsurprisingly is Andy Murray.
