World No.3 Daniil Medvedev was eliminated at the start of the Masters 1000 in Paris by the Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov 6-3, 6-7 (4/7), 7-6 (7/2) on Wednesday, like the N. 2 world Carlos Alcaraz the day before.
Trailing 5 games to 2 in the third set, Medvedev delayed the deadline until the decisive tie-break and repelled six first match points, but Dimitrov ended up finishing on his seventh opportunity, in just under three hours. World No. 1 Novak Djokovic still has to enter the fray in the afternoon, against Argentinian Tomas Martin Etcheverry (31st).
