It was a dramatic match that had Dimitrov face a few nervy moments. That tension was visible even on Sharapova’s face, who bit her nails as Dimitrov went down in the first set.

However, Sharapova’s presence and encouragement spurred Dimitrov to a fight back, and he went on to script a 4-6, 6-2, 7-6 (4) victory over Sela.

Dimitrov was a semifinalist at the tournament last year.

Last month, the World No 2 and Dimitrov were photographed cuddling and kissing at the Madrid Open.
