The format is a little different too, with players split into two groups and winners moving into the semifinals where Alexander Zverev and Felix Auger-Aliassime are waiting.
Feliciano Lopez began the day with a 3-1 win over Alexei Popyrin, complete with some controversy on match point.
Dimitrov got shut out against Richard Gasquet 4-0, then Benoit Pair took out Dustin Brown, 3-1. Corentin Moutet made it a French hat trick and brought out the flashiness in a 3-2 win over Verdasco.
Action continues on Sunday with Moutet vs. Brown, Dimitrov vs. Lopez, Gasquet vs. Popyrin and Verdasco vs. Paire.
