You can’t doubt the talent is there we have seen it on so many occasions. 2014 was the year Dimitrov burst onto the scene and was quickly talked about as being the next big thing and even by many called ‘baby Fed’ due to his similar style of player like Roger Federer’s.
Since then it has been difficult for the Bulgarian who had a lot of ups and downs on and off the court but towards the backend of last year really started to show good signs of improvement and is less reliant and focused on his backhand now and you could argue his forehand has become the better shot of the two.
I want to see Dimitrov back in that top 10 and I do think it will happen sooner rather than later.
I saw his first match of the year against the in-form American Steve Johnson and was expecting a close encounter between the two and to be honest Steve didn’t play too badly at all but Dimitrov was in control. I can’t say there was a part of his game which let him down at all or could have been better it was just solid from him.
Dimitrov seems to have his feet on the ground. He is still only 25 and has lived through that hype which surrounded him earlier on in his career but right now things are going well working with a former coach of Andy Murray in Dani Vallverdu and I think that this year could be a very good one for him and I’ll stick my neck out here and say he will be ranked at 10 in the world by Wimbledon(currently at 17)…
