Grigor Dimitrov (Bulgarian: Григор Димитров) (born 16 May 1991) is a professional Bulgarian tennis player who as of May 20, 2013 is ranked World No. 28 by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP). Dimitrov is the most successful Bulgarian male tennis player, both in terms of ranking reached — first and only player to rank inside the top 30 — and prize money won, being the only player to reach $1M. He is also the first (and only) Bulgarian to reach an ATP final in singles (in 2013) and doubles (in 2011). Prior to his professional career, Dimitrov enjoyed a successful junior career, in which he held the World No. 1 ranking and won the Boys' Singles titles at the 2008 Wimbledon Championships and the 2008 US Open.
Personal life 
Grigor was born in Haskovo, Bulgaria as the only child of father Dimitar, a tennis coach and mother Maria, a sports teacher and former volleyball player. He first held a tennis racket, given to him by his mother at the age of three and when he was five he began to play daily. During his teenage years he lived in Paris, France while training at Patrick Mouratoglou's Tennis Academy. He speaks fluent Bulgarian and English and says his main interests are all sports, cars, computers and watches. He is nicknamed G-Force, Dimi, PT (Prime Time).
Junior career 
His first major junior coup was when, at age 14, he claimed the U14 European title. In 2006 he won the Orange Bowl U16 boys singles and was later named the Eddie Herr International 2007 Rising Star.
In 2007, Grigor was the finalist at the Orange Bowl U18 boys singles, losing to Ričardas Berankis of Lithuania. Alongside Vasek Pospisil, he reached the 2007 US Open doubles final, falling to Jonathan Eysseric and Jérôme Inzerillo.
He began the 2008 Grand Slam season with a quarterfinal showing at Roland Garros, losing to Poland's Jerzy Janowicz in three sets. However he went on to win Wimbledon after defeating Henri Kontinen of Finland in the final. He won the title without dropping a set despite playing with a shoulder injury throughout the tournament. The victory saw him join former junior champions Roger Federer and Stefan Edberg and guaranteed him a wildcard entry into the 2009 Wimbledon men's draw. His success continued at the US Open, which he won on September 7, defeating American qualifier Devin Britton in two sets. On his way to the title he also defeated top seed Tsung-hua Yang of Taiwan in the semifinals. After the tournament Dimitrov announced that he was ending his junior career and focusing on improving his ATP ranking. On September 8 he became junior World No. 1 overtaking Tsung-hua Yang. He closed at No. 3 of the junior ranking that year.
Dimitrov compiled a singles win/loss record of 66–25 as a junior (and 42–20 in doubles).

His first ATP level match was at 's-Hertogenbosch where he lost to Igor Andreev (RUS) in straight sets.
After his junior US Open title he won back to back futures tournaments in Madrid on hard court and rose 300 places to career high ranking of 477. The achievement attracted enough attention to earn him a wildcard into the AMS Madrid qualifying draw where he lost to then No.64 Florent Serra of France.
After being granted another wildcard to the Davidoff Swiss Indoors Championships in Basel, he won his first professional match at the ATP level by defeating No.122 Jiří Vaněk (CZE) in three sets in the first round of the qualifying draw.

Four first round exits in Challengers followed, including a disappointing first round exit in his home country, Bulgaria. He then reached the quarter finals of two successive challengers in Cremona, Italy and Nottingham, England.
In Wimbledon where he got a wildcard as the 2008 Juniors Champion he won the first set of his first round match against Igor Kunitsyn but then suffered a knee injury. Despite this he attempted to continue but lost the following 10 games before he retired.
He reached the quarter finals of the challenger in Segovia, Spain losing out in three sets to Marcel Granollers of Spain. After beating Nicolas Mahut of France in the first round of the Istanbul Challenger Grigor lost out to Martin Fischer of Austria in straight sets
As the 2008 winner of the US Open Boys Tournament he was granted a wildcard for the 2009 US Open Qualification Tournament. He won his first round match vs. Tobias Kamke (Germany) but in the second round he lost to the number 1 seed of the qualification Thomaz Bellucci.
On September 27, 2009 Dimitrov won his first doubles challenger title in Trnava, Slovakia together with Teymuraz Gabashvili. In the final they beat Minars and Rosol from Czech Republic in a very close match.
Dimitrov started the 2010 season with a quarterfinal finish at a challenger event in Nouméa, New Caledonia. He then attempted to qualify for the Australian Open, but lost in the first round to Robert Kendrick in three sets. He bounced back a week later by qualifying at the Honolulu challenger, reaching the round of 16 before losing to Donald Young. Dimitrov then participated for Bulgaria in the Davis Cup, claiming all 3 wins in a 3–2 victory over Monaco. Following the Davis Cup tie, Grigor had a number of early losses in various challenger tournaments.
Dimitrov won his first ATP tour match of the year on the grass courts of the AEGON Championships in London. He beat Alex Bogdanovic before losing to World No. 31 Feliciano López in the second round. Grigor then had a great run in the Marburg challenger, where he came through qualifying to reach the semi-finals where he lost out to Simone Vagnozzi.
Grigor again had a number of disappointing losses in challenger events and another Davis Cup tie. Dimitrov then participated in four futures tournaments, posting impressive results, including two tournament victories in Germany, and another in Spain. Dimitrov gained enough points to enter the world's top 250 for the first time in his career.
He then played another challenger in Bangkok, where he beat former top 20 player Dmitry Tursunov in the quarterfinals en route to his second consecutive tournament win. He defeated Konstantin Kravchuk in the final which placed him in top 150 in the world. He was the highest ranked teenager on the ATP Tour at that time.
In a second challenger in the same venue in Bangkok in the very next week Grigor beat Ivan Dodig (First Round), Go Soeda (SF) and Alexandre Kudryavtsev (F) on his way to win the tournament, which was his third consecutive Challenger win and gave him a spot in the Top 140 in the ATP ranking. He expressed that after this victory it is his aim to enter the ATP top 100 in 2011.
He made an early exit in his first challenger after a two week break but bounced back a week later, beating top 100 player Lukáš Lacko and world number 32 Michaël Llodra on the way to the final of the Orléans challenger. In the final Grigor lost to Frenchman Nicolas Mahut in a third set tiebreak.
After two disappointing challenger tournaments in Germany, in which Dimitrov suffered first round exits, he reached the semifinals of the challenger tournament in Helsinki, his last tournament of the year. There he played Lithuanian youngster Ričardas Berankis. After the loss of a tight first set in a tiebreak, Dimitrov dominated the second set but was dominated in turn by Berankis in a third set loss. In an off-court incident after the match, Dimitrov pushed the chair umpire with both hands and sweared at him because he felt he was treated unfairly after some close calls in the first set tiebreak. Dimitrov was fined €2,000, and the ATP will investigate this incident to see if further disciplinary action is warranted. By reaching the semifinals in Helsinki, Dimitrov reached his best ever ATP world ranking (106).
Dimitrov's first tournament of the year was the Australian Open, where he advanced through the qualifying rounds with the loss of just one set. He defeated world number 38 Andrey Golubev in the first round to advance for the first time to the second round of a Grand Slam tournament where he lost to 19th seed Stanislas Wawrinka. Nonetheless, Dimitrov achieved his top ever ATP ranking, ending January at 85th spot. Thus, he became the top ranked Bulgarian male tennis player of all time.
On April 1, Dimitrov became the first Bulgarian man ever to be seeded at an ATP World Tour tournament being seeded 8 at the 2011 U.S. Men's Clay Court Championships in Houston. On April 27, he reached his first quarterfinals in an ATP tournament, defeating Marcos Baghdatis at the 2011 BMW Open in Munich, achieving a career-best ranking of #66.
Dimitrov then advanced to his second ATP quarterfinals at the 2011 AEGON International after he defeated sixth seeded Kevin Anderson in the 2nd round, but lost in the 3rd round to 3rd seed Janko Tipsarević (who went to reach the final).
On June 16, he became the first Bulgarian man ever to reach a doubles final at an ATP tournament together with Andreas Seppi at the 2011 AEGON International in Eastbourne. At Wimbledon, he lost a memorable second round match to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga where the crowd was standing during the fourth set tiebreak.At 2011 Western & Southern Open Dimitrov defeated Marsel İlhan in the first round, but lost to world number 6 David Ferrer in the second round.

This good run in Monte Carlo meant Dimitrov entered the top 30 in the ATP rankings for the first time, at no. 28.
His next event was Barcelona, also on clay, where he was seeded 14th and had a bye in the first round. In the second round, despite leading 5-2 in the first set, he lost in straight sets to in-form world №43 Tommy Robredo, who went on to reach the quarterfinals. He also participated in the Barcelona doubles with partner Radek Štěpánek, but they lost in straight sets against Ivan Dodig and Marcelo Melo in the first round.

He also played in the doubles event with fellow youngster Milos Raonic, but they lost in the 1st round in straight sets in a match that lasted just under 1 hour (with one break of serve in the seventh game deciding both sets) against the veteran duo of Tommy Haas and Radek Štěpánek, who went on to reach the 1/4-finals.

His next event will be Roland Garros.
As a child, Dimitrov was coached by his father, Dimitar, at Tennis Club Haskovo. As his talent became more apparent he started to receive coaching from abroad, most notably from Spaniard Pato Alvarez, who has also coached Britain's Andy Murray. Alvarez has reportedly said that Dimitrov is the best 17 year old he has coached. Around the time of his success at the 2009 ABN AMRO in Rotterdam, Dimitrov formally began a coaching relationship with Peter Lundgren, former coach of world number ones Marat Safin and Roger Federer. Lundgren has also been quick to praise Dimitrov, saying that "he is better than Federer was at his age." In June 2010 he ended his coaching relationship with Lundgren and was subsequently coached by Australian pro Peter McNamara. Dimitrov and McNamara have ended their coaching relationship at the end of the 2011 season. In 2012, Dimitrov was coached by Patrick Mouratoglou in an attempt to revive his fortunes. On 26 Nov 2012, Dimitrov left the Patrick Mouratoglou Academy and has joined the Good to Great Tennis Academy in Sweden, which is run by ex-touring pros Magnus Norman, Nicklas Kulti, and Mikael Tillström.
Playing style 
Dimitrov is an all court player with a heavy emphasis on baseline play. He plays right-handed and employs a single-handed backhand. He considers the backhand down the line as his favorite shot and his favorite surfaces are hard court and grass. Despite this he has had notable success on clay courts as well. His game has been often compared to Roger Federer's (earning him the nickname "Baby Fed") due to the similarity in their ground strokes, particularly off the backhand side. He manages to duplicate the fluid motions of Federer's forehand, backhand, serve and volley with relative ease, and has shown himself capable of performing shots that continue the comparisons between him and Federer. Dimitrov has stated however that he would like people to appreciate his game to himself and not Federer. Despite his recent improvement in several areas, some people[who?] believe his movement and balance needs to be improved if he wants to reach the top of the game. His lack of stamina/physical fitness and his return of serve have also been cited as weaknesses. His own serve has improved in the recent months, and is consistent and powerful, although lacking in precision. His speed and hustle is quite remarkable from someone his age, but is noted[by whom?] that with his poor balance he often falls over himself, running past balls with an eagerness to reach every ball, tiring himself out quickly.
Dimitrov is using a customized Wilson mid-size 93 square inches prototype racket provided by the Wilson Pro Room Team (as disclosed by pro tour stringers such as the Priority One team members), cosmetic on it currently is the Pro Staff Six.One 95, it is weighted about 12.oz strung with a 16X19 string pattern. He is sponsored by Nike wearing the brand apparel and the Nike Zoom Vapor Tour 9 shoes which are also Federer's shoes of choice.
