Tennis: In an interview with Daily Mail, Bulgaria's Grigor Dimitrov revealed that watching Maria Sharapova win Wimbledon in 2004 is his best Tennis memory and his dream partner is former world no.1 Andre Agassi.

What is the best match you have ever played?

The best match was when I beat Novak Djokovic in the second round in Madrid earlier this year [Dimitrov beat the then-world No 1 7-6, 6-7, 6-3].

What is the worst?

The worst was against Djokovic three weeks later in the third round at the French Open [Dimitrov lost 6-2, 6-2, 6-3 in just one hour and 44 minutes].

If you could team up in doubles with any player from history, who would it be and why?

I would like to play with Andre Agassi. His returns would make things easier.

Who are your best friends in the locker room and what do you get up to with them as you travel the world?

I don't have one in particular, I think we are all pretty friendly with each other and of course there are a lot of jokes here and there. Overall I have a good relationship with everyone.

The biggest jokers are definitely Dmitry Tursunov, Michael Llodra with his funny stuff and Robert Lindstedt as well.

What is the strangest or funniest question you have been asked in press?

I had a Q&A the other day and they asked me when was the last time I camped outside. That was very weird.

What is your most memorable moment watching sport?

I am going to go with my girlfriend Maria winning Wimbledon at 17 years old in 2004. That was a tremendous effort.

What is your favourite travel destination away from the tennis tour?

Los Angeles.

What is your favourite song and film of all time?

I don't have one song in particular. I'll go with the Notebook for my favourite movie. I really like it.

What would be your last meal on earth?

I'll start with foie gras, then steak and fries and I'll have a lemon sorbet for dessert.

Which three people would you invite to the meal?

My mum, dad and girlfriend.

If there was one rule in tennis you could change, what would it be?

Play with the same type of balls every week.
