Venus Williams and Serena Williams congratulated Grigor Dimitrov on a strong Paris Masters run and Venus' reaction was pretty great. This past week, Dimitrov achieved his best result of the season as the Bulgarian made the final before Novak Djokovic handed him a 6-4 6-3 loss.

Dimitrov's 2023 season had ups and downs and Dimitrov became very emotional after the Paris final. "Feeling grateful. I have all the messages, all the support and the love I’ve received is touching. I just want to say thank you for everything to everyone that has been on this journey with me.

Thank you for a memorable @rolexparismasters," Dimitrov captioned his Instagram post. In the comment section, Venus wrote: "Please note I am your biggest fan more than @serenawilliams." Dimitrov funnily reacted: "@venuswilliams aiii aiiii what will @serenawilliams say now?!" Serena also dropped a comment, writing: "Love you Grigs!!!!!!!!!"

For many years, Dimitrov has had a good relationship with the Williams sisters.

After Dimitrov broke down in tears following the end of the Paris final, many - including the Williams sisters - reached out to the Bulgarian. But after the Paris final, Dimitrov explained that he wasn't crying because he was sad - but because he was happy to have finally made a big result.

"It's difficult to explain emotions, I think. You want it. You know, it's tough when it doesn't happen. Only I know, in a way, without, like, feeling sorry for myself, what I've gone through the past months on and off the court.

Those are happy tears. I don't want to have them as something negative. I'm human, after all. At the end of the day, I think just the buildup not only of the last two weeks, the last months of hard work and the big trip in China, everything has been kind of, in a way, snowballing like day after day, match after match.

Of course in the end I was so close to making something that I wanted to do for such a long time," Dimitrov said in his press.
