Bulgaria's Grigor Dimitrov failed to make it to the US Open quarter-finals after losing to France's Ga?l Monfils 5:7, 6:7 (6), 5:7.

Bulgaria's star tennis player, seeded 7th, was defeated by the Frenchman, seeded 20th, in a match of 2 hours and 24 minutes, according to reports of the BBC News.

Dimitrov failed to avenge a first round US Open defeat to Monfils in 2011.

Monfils moves on to play Switzerland's second-seeded Roger Federer.
