Grigor started the game hesitantly, making two double mistakes but managed to save his offer three times. Struff served excellent and did not give a chance to a Bulgarian spot when he served.

The German managed to break for 3-2 and at that moment the Khaskovo woke up. Grigor found his face and squeezed it. This was a distraction from Stroff, who began to make mistakes, and the advance was returned immediately.

There were a lot of games for the servants, but they were not easy to win. Grigor managed to make long games, which in most cases he won. Struff took the initiative but could not deal with Dimitrov's "granitic" defense.
