"I'm playing the best tennis of my career, maybe. I would say I'm playing better tennis, in general. You have to try to take advantage of the opportunities that come your way, that's life. I think I'm still one of the candidates for big titles : I have proven it in recent months.

If I do everything correctly, opportunities will come. Every player experiences a different situation. There were times when I thought I could have and do everything. Over time I have understood what my strengths are, both on and off the court. I have learned to find the balance to manage all the moments. The most important thing is to live in the present: you have to be 100% in all moments."

During an interview with Tennis Channel, Grigor Dimitrov opened up about the moment he is experiencing. the Bulgarian tennis player has been showing fantastic tennis since the end of last season. Positive sensations also confirmed by the excellent start of 2024.
