Grigor Dimitrov proceeded to the second round of the 2015 US Open on Monday, defeating the Australian qualifier Matthew Ebden in three sets.

The 17th seed Bulgarian came through by a comfortable 6-4 6-2 6-4 win over Ebden in New York.

Dimitrov needed 1 hour 28 minutes to reach his third victory in as many matches against Ebden. The Bulgarian will meet  Mikhail Kukushkin of Kazakhstan in the second round.

Dimitrov hasn’t reached a final this year even though he achieved several notable victories, including wins against Stan Wawrinka, Fabio Foghini and Fernando Verdasco.
