Grigor Dimitrov’s tournament schedule for 2019
Often referred to as ‘Mini-Fed’ because of the similarity in his play to that of Roger Federer, Grigor Dimitrov has long promised to break through and become the next World No.1 but his frequent rise and fall in the rankings makes this now seem unlikely. Unless 2019 is his year?
Currently ranked No. 31 in the World, Grigor Dimitrov will feel that he has the ability to make it back into the top 10 this year having been as high as No.3 in the rankings as recently as 2017. If Dimitrov can stay focussed on his game this year then there is no reason why he can’t return to winning ways and even compete for Grand Slams and ATP 1000 events.
His temperament is often questioned and sometimes it seems his off-court life might be distracting him. A string of high profile girlfriends and regular changes of coaching team have often lead to speculation that he’s a playboy who can’t knuckle down. Maybe as he matures these tendencies will recede and we’ll start to see the best out of him? Let’s hope so as a Dimitrov firing on all cylinders is a beautiful sight.

Brisbane, Australia (December 31 – January 6)
