Grigor Dimitrov sets up a last-eight clash with Rafael Nadal after beating Florian Mayer in the Monte Carlo Masters.

Grigor Dimitrov is through to the quarter-finals of the Monte Carlo Masters by beating Florian Mayer in straight sets.

The Bulgarian is attempting to establish himself in the world's top 30, and he took a step nearer to that feat by recording a 6-2 6-4 win over his German opponent.

The 21-year-old was at his flamboyant best in surging through the opening set and he looked on course to seal victory in double-quick time.

However, Mayer struck back when Dimitrov attempted to serve for the match, but in the next game, he responded with a break of serve of his own to move through to the last eight.

He will now play Rafael Nadal, who sealed an equally impressive victory over Philipp Kohlschreiber.
