Contends with back injury in loss
Back
February 16, 2021
Dimitrov battled back spasms Tuesday and ultimately fell 6-2, 4-6, 1-6, 2-6 to Aslan Karatsev in the quarterfinals of the Australian Open, Novinite.com reports.
ANALYSIS
After upsetting last year's Australian Open runner-up, Dominic Thiem, on Sunday, Dimitrov couldn't keep the momentum going in the semifinals. Per Eleanor Crooks of the Press Association, Dimitrov relayed after the match that he first experienced back spasms Monday, and though he was able to play through the issue, he appeared to be moving around at well below 100 percent against Karatsev. Look for Dimitrov to rest for at least the remainder of February before returning to action next month, assuming his bout with back spasms proves to be a short-term concern.
