Bulgarian tennis player Grigor Dimitrov started his participation in the French Open in an excellent way, winning 6-1, 6-1, 6-1 against American Marcos Giron in a match of the first round of the tournament that lasted 1 hour and 35 minutes. A year ago, the two met again in a match from the opening round of Roland Garros, but the Bulgarian stopped his participation because of an injury.

On Wednesday, in the second round of Roland Garros, Dimitrov will face the winner of the match between Croatia's Borna Coric and Spain's Carlos Taberner.
