He’s 21 now, ranked #41. Grigor Dimitrov has had a typically up and down year. Finals of Brisbane (lost to Murray), three first round exits in straight sets (Zagreb to Dr. Ivo, Australian to Benneteau, Sydney to Fognini), two Davis Cup wins last week against Finland in Bulgaria. This week in Amsterdam, Dimitrov has defeated Tomic, Davydenko and Bagdhatis today to reach the SF. If he can beat (probably) Delpo in the semi he could face (most likely) Federer in the final.
Dimitrov is off to a 9-4 record overall so far this year. He is now coached by the Sweden-based trio of Mikael Tillstrom, Magnus Norman and Niklas Kulti based out of the “Good To Great Academy.”
Could this be the point of time G-Force breaks out of the middle of the pack to establish himself as a bona fide ATP star?
