Bulgaria's top male tennis player Grigor Dimitrov has terminated his participation in this year's Wimbledon over health problems.

Grigor Dimitrov quit his second-round match with Cyrpus's Marcos Baghdatis due to illness on Thursday.

Baghdatis had won the first set 7-5 and was 4-1 up in the second when the Bulgarian informed the umpire he could not continue.

“Dimitrov is suffering from the flu - he wasn’t breathing well and has very little energy,” Nova Sports television said during their coverage of the match out on Court No.12.

“It probably doesn’t help that it’s a relatively hot and sticky day and he may even have been feeling a bit dizzy at times

“He’s just really unlucky. You train so hard to be ready for such a great tournament like Wimbledon and then can’t do yourself justice as you’re sick,” Nova added.

The 27-year-old Cypriot who is currently ranked 42nd in the ATP South African Airways Rankings, will face Andy Murray on Saturday.
