Bulgaria's Dimitrov Eager to Win 1st Title
22-year old Bulgarian tennis player Grigor Dimitrov is looking forward to stepping up on the big stage in 2014 after reaching his first ATP World Tour final at the Brisbane International (l. to Murray) and upsetting World No. 1 Novak Djokovic in the Mutua Madrid Open second round this season.
In an interview to ATP , Dimitrov has expressed his doubts whether he could win his first title that season as the tendency is winners to become more experienced players and meanwhile stressed the importance of consistency.
“Experience talks on a lot of occasions,” said the right-hander. “But the guys who have been on tour for a long time, they’ve seen and done a lot of things and I’m sure they’ve learned from their mistakes. I’m sure the younger generation is going forward. All of us are going forward to settle somewhere out there and then strive to be among the best. It always takes time.”
The young Bulgarian tennis player is eager to reach the title, being ready to devote a lot of time and efforts.
“I had a few tough losses here and there, but that’s the tour nowadays. It’s not that easy to compete every week, which is obviously the most important thing, that consistency. It gives you extra confidence and extra hunger and motivation to play even better in the coming weeks. Consistency in everything you do is obviously the most important thing in the game nowadays.”, remarked Dimitrov.
Dimitrov spent time this season working at the Good To Great Tennis Academy in Sweden and he placed particular importance on improving his physical capabilities and endurance, recognizing that it will be crucial for him as he looks to make his eagerly anticipated breakthrough at a major.
