Bulgaria's top male tennis player Grigor Dimitrov has failed to beat last year's champion Andy Murray at the final of the ATP tournament in Brisbane, Australia.

Grigor Dimitrov, aka Grisho, lost to Murray 6:7(0), 4:6 in a tough match in Brisbane, which lasted for 1 hour and 32 minutes.

Regardless of his failure to upset Andy Murray, Grisho still achieved an unprecedented success for Bulgaria's male tennis by reaching an ATP tournament final.

Dimitrov scored a 6-3 5-7 7-6 (7-5) victory over Cypriot Marcos Baghdatis, thus becoming the first Bulgarian male tennis player to reach an ATP final.

World No. 3 Andy Murray got to the final after Kei Nishikori from Japan withdrew in the second set of their semifinal over a leg injury.
