The Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov did not have an exceptional 2020 season. Winner of the London Masters in 2017, the 29-year-old player failed to surpass this title. Having finished 19th in the world in 2020, Dimitrov hopes to bounce back in 2021. Collaborating with Andre Agassi since 2018, the American has not been around much to support the Bulgarian in tournaments. It is for this reason that Dimitrov should hire the Argentinean Dante Bottini, former coach of the Japanese Kei Nishikori.

According to the information of “Break Point Bulgaria”, Dimitrov should change coach by the end of this week. Coach of Nishikori between 2010 and 2019, Bottini had been part of the sequel coaching Chilean Nicholas Jarry. Along with the 41-year-old Argentinean, Nishikori player played in a Grand Slam final at the 2014 US Open and won 11 titles. With Bottini, Dimitrov hopes to take a step forward and finally win a Grand Slam title. This season, the Bulgarian’s best result is a semi-final in Acapulco and Antwerp. In Grand Slam, Dimitrov hasn’t done better than a Round of 16 at Roland Garros.
Also in the coaching team of Grigor, there is a fitness trainer – Sebastien Durand, and a physiotherapist – Casey Cordial
Grigor past coaches
Christian Groh began working with Grigor at the end of 2019 when Dimitrov stopped working with Radek Stepanek. The lack of results in the form of victories in tournaments most likely led to the end of cooperation with this specialist.
