Grigor Dimitrov and Andrey Rublev played out a thrilling third-round match at the Australian Open on Friday, with the former going on to register a 6-3 4-6 6-4 6-4 win.

But, the tussle between the two was not just confined to tennis as they also showed off their shirt-ripping skills on Rod Laver Arena (blame the searing heat Down Under).

It happened at the end of the second set, when Dimitrov (26) pulled off a Hulk Hogan on his t-shirt. Rublev (20) too tried doing that, but his effort went in vain.

Twitterati was quick to react on the incident. “Could he not just lift it over his head??” one user questioned, while another wrote: “Hilarious!! Rublev looks like a little kid!”

Meanwhile, Dimitrov is now slated to lock horns with the winner of the other third-round match between Australia’s Nick Kyrgios and France’s Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.
