Currently, Dimitrov is ranked at no. 23 in the ATP rankings with his career-high being at no. 3.
The 31-year-old is 21-18 for the season and this will be his first indoor match for the year. Dimitrov took a break since the US Open where he was eliminated by Brandon Nakashima in straight sets in the second round.
Ilya Ivashka is currently in 71st place with his best ranking at no. 41. The player from Belarus is 21-19 for the season and 4-3 in indoor matches. He is coming off a 2-1 win against Mikael Ymer in the first round in Sofia.

Grigor Dimitrov will play his first match in almost a month and he will have the support of the home crowd in Sofia. A month ago, in Winston Salem, he needed to withdraw in the second round with an injury and according to the reports he is close to 100%. Still, a month off will certainly leave a mark on his form and confidence which definitely gives Ivashka a chance. The player from Belarus has a good serve and always fights. Taking all this into consideration, this will be a long match, with both players holding their serve for the majority of the match which will result in over 21.5 games.
