Grigor Dimitrov had a decent day in the office on Wednesday as he prevailed 7-6 6-4 over Germany’s Jan-Lennard Struff and advance to the third round of the Monte-Carlo Masters.

And during the one-hour and 57-minute battle, the Bulgarian star showed off his flexibility by pulling off a split at the end of one of the rallies.

This is not the first time Dimitrov has done it on court. At the Swiss Indoors in 2015, he unleashed a down-the-line forehand winner against Sergiy Stakhovsky while splitting.

Sure, Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams would be proud to see that.

Meanwhile, Dimitrov has a mountainous task ahead as he’s scheduled to lock horns with Rafael Nadal, who demonstrated his clay-court prowess by crushing Roberto Bautista Agut 6-1 6-1 in his opening game.

For the record, Nadal has defeated Dimitrov 11 times off their 12 head-to-head contests so far, with the latter’s only win coming in 2016.
