HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRISHA!ALL THE BEST AND TOP 10 BY THE END OF 2013!YOU CAN DO IT AND WE ARE GOING TO LOVE IT!
Grigor Dimitrov was born on May 16, 1991
According Grisha Dimitrov, Maria Sharapova is better than Serena Williams. Grisha prefers Maria. He met Serana Williams once but finally he chose Maria as a girlfriend. Maria is his number 1 in tennis.
I mean Maria is our real number 1 in tennis.
The Russian player, who is five years older than Dimitrov, said that this is just a part of their personal life away from the court.
I see that they both love their Dad. Maria often says that her Dad is her heart.
Bulgaria's Dimitrov after His Biggest Victory: I Love You Dad
After sensationally kicking out world No. 1 Novak Djokovic, Bulgaria's young tennisstar Grigor Dimitrov got emotional and wrote “I love you dad” on a camera.Djokovic was dumped out of the Madrid Open in the second round after an inspired performance by 21-year-old Grigor Dimitrov.
The Bulgarian hadn't previously won a set against the six-time grand slam winner but took the match in three sets to secure the biggest scalp of his career to date.
Djokovic, from Serbia, received treatment on his ankle during the second set but recovered to save a match point and send the match into a decider.
But Dimitrov held his nerve to break Djokovic's serve twice in the final set and take the match 7-6 6-7 6-3.
Dimitrov grew up in Haskovo, Bulgaria, a southern province near Turkey and Greece. His father is a tennis coach and taught him the game. His mother is a former volleyball player.
Peter McNamara, a former Australian player who reached No. 7 in the world and used to coach Mark Philippoussis, became Dimitrov's coach in the summer of 2010. After breaking up with McNamara in November 2011 Grigor admitted he has been relying mainly on his father's help, sensing he couldn't keep going on without him.
Sharapova had responded to the publishing of those photos by cryptically writing "how did you catch us?" on the courtside camera after her Madrid Open quarter-final on Friday.
Dartagnan: A reply of Grisha to people who think that he is only Maria's toy boy or boy toy.
Grisha wants to show that his tennis career is even more important for him.
It was a smart choice because Dimitrov, who is as photogenic as he is athletic, can cock an eyebrow with the suavity of Roger Moore.
Surely the most exciting young gun on the ATP Tour, the Bulgarian is arguably tennis’s top dreamboat too, judging by his relationship with golden girl Maria Sharapova.
But how about his credentials as a possible world-beater and grand slam champion? Five years after he won junior Wimbledon, he remains – in his own words – “a work in progress”.
“I think a lot of people have been waiting for me to do something big,” Dimitrov told Telegraph Sport.
“It’s nice that they have high expectations, and why not? This is my goal. The first step is top 10 and you go from there. But for that you have to have quite a lot of big results during the year, and the challenge is to sustain your level.”
Dimitrov’s appearance in Rome was a good example. He came in on an even higher cushion of hype than normal, having beaten No 1 Novak Djokovic in his previous tournament in Madrid. He left in a hurry, after going down to Richard Gasquet in the first round.
He is to the men’s tour what Laura Robson is to the women’s: a charismatic young player who blossoms against big-name opponents, then turns all diffident once the TV cameras have stopped rolling. It seems scarcely credible that, at 21, a player of his quality has never won more than a single match at a grand slam.
“Sometimes it’s tough to focus on the task in hand,” said Dimitrov, who spent his off-season training with his new coaches Magnus Norman and Mikael Tillstrom in the long, dark nights of midwinter Sweden.
"If you’re going to play the No 1 player in the world, of course you’re going to say, 'Now it’s something serious'. The next thing you’re playing a lower-ranking guy, and you think ‘I can just go through’ but that’s not the case. It’s very important to have a good mindset for that.”
If Dimitrov has been steadier in 2013 – his ranking has climbed from No 95 a year ago to 28 now – many would put that down to the influence of Sharapova. Her mental tenacity, which she reinforces by turning her back to the court after every point, is such that she never loses to moderate opposition. Could that flintiness be rubbing off on her boyfriend?
“Of course, I mean … ” starts Dimitrov, before tailing off. “I don’t think I’ll put that as a tennis-related question, that’s more of the private, yeah.”
He prefers not to talk about his love life; if he did, his press conferences would soon degenerate into gossipy inquiries about Sharapova and his previous dalliance with Serena Williams (who could be seen as frosty rivals in love as well as tennis).
Finally, though, we are beginning to see Dimitrov’s racketwork start as many conversations as his romances.
Last month Ivan Lendl described the first set of the Brisbane final in January, where Dimitrov lost to Andy Murray, as “the best tennis I have seen all year”.
And there were further plaudits from Toni Nadal, after Dimitrov had extended his nephew Rafael to three sets at the Monte Carlo Country Club.
“He should be top-10 player,” said Uncle Toni. “When he gets there, I don’t know, but it can be soon. He has a game for playing against the best.”
“It’s nice to hear and I appreciate that,” Dimitrov responded on Friday. “But it’s very important to find your way into the tournaments, to get to the second week of a grand slam. If I can do that, maybe I can do even more damage.”
Friday's French Open draw was kind, throwing up an opening match against Alejandro Falla en route to a possible reunion with Djokovic in the third round.
The TV networks will be praying they both make it that far, for already this year Dimitrov has played a series of classic matches against the so-called “big four” – matches in which he showed little respect for his supposed elders and betters.
A high-risk game comes naturally to a man who describes “extreme sport” as his passion.
The one problem with being a professional tennis player, Dimitrov says, is that he cannot go skydiving or snowboarding for fear of injury. Those adrenalin rushes will have to wait for a good decade at least.
In the meantime, this all-action lady-killer looks like the best chance tennis has of finding a global superstar to follow in the shoes of Federer and Nadal.
He has gifts of the kind you usually see in the movies.

The French Open finalist attended boyfriend Grigor Dimitrov’s first-round match against Dudi Sela at the Aegon Championships in London. She was treated to plenty of drama as Dimitrov prevailed 4-6, 6-2, 7-6 (4) after Sela served for the match in the third set.
Sharapova, 26, is not playing this week after losing to Serena Williams at the French Open on Saturday. Dimitrov, 22, made the semifinals at Queen’s Club last year.
Dimitrov lost in the third round of the French Open, where he was asked about his view of the paparazzi in the wake of being snapped cuddling with Sharapova at the Madrid Open last month.
“Well, they’ve got to live, right?” he told reporters with a laugh. “It will happen, so I have to be ready. Next time I’ll wave, maybe.”
Sharapova opened up about her private life in an interview with USA Today last month.
“It’s about finding the person where you can be yourself all the time, where you’re comfortable with being younger girl, the older girl, the mature girl, and the person that understands you and look at you and say you’re completely off your rocker!” she tells USA TODAY Sports, chuckling.“I have so many things going on in my life and I really love them. Of course I want someone to be by my side to enjoy them. You know, I can jump on a plane tomorrow and go somewhere because I want to do it. And it’s really important that that person respects me for the decisions that I make and the things that I do in my life.”

Russia Maria Sharapova was seen at her animated best when boyfriend Grigor Dimitov of Bulgaria took on Dudi Sela of Israel on day one of the AEGON Championships at Queens Club on Monday.
It was a dramatic match that had Dimitrov face a few nervy moments. That tension was visible even on Sharapova’s face, who bit her nails as Dimitrov went down in the first set.
However, Sharapova’s presence and encouragement spurred Dimitrov to a fight back, and he went on to script a 4-6, 6-2, 7-6 (4) victory over Sela.
Dimitrov was a semifinalist at the tournament last year.
Lleyton Hewitt posted an upset victory over rising star Grigor Dimitrov in the second round of Queen's in London.
