Rotterdam: Grigor Dimitrov rallied from a set down to beat Marcos Baghdatis 6-7 (4), 7-6 (0), 6-3 and book a place in the semi-finals of the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament on Friday.

Baghdatis took the first-set tiebreak after neither player managed to break serve. Both then broke once in the second set before Dimitrov ran away with the tiebreak, not allowing Baghdatis a single point.

The talented Bulgarian broke Baghdatis' first service game of the final set to set up his win, before leaping over the net to hug Baghdatis.
