Kazakh tennis player stuns Grigor Dimitrov in a five-set thriller at U.S. Open

Mikhail Kukushkin of Kazakhstan has breezed into the third round of the U.S. Open 2015 in NYC by sensationally eliminating world №17 Grigor Dimitrov, Sports.kz reports.

The match wasn’t a walk in the park for Kukushkin as he needed more than three hours and five sets to send Bulgaria packing.

The 27-year-old Kukushkin routed Dimitrov 6-3, 7-6, 2-6, 4-6, 6-4. It is worth mentioning that the Bulgarian athlete served 19 (!) aces, whereas Kukushkin hit only two.

Next up for Mikhail is the U.S. Open 2014 title holder Marin Cilic from Croatia.
