Grigor Dimitrov: 'Nadal told me that if I play like this, I will win a Grand Slam title'

Ten days after the five-sets loss to Rafael Nadal at the Australian Open, Grigor Dimitrov has returned to competition, where he is the third seeded player and definitely the home favourite. The Bulgarian player takes what's positive from the Australian campaign, and thinks that many good things can happen in the future.

'I am living my dream. I win tournaments, I am playing good tennis. I am in the middle of my career and I have set a lot of goals that I want to achieve.

'After I lost the match with Rafa, I played this game in my head hundred times.

I wanted to find what I could do better, what mistakes I did. After some days I understood that I did everything I could. Rafa told me at the net to go on this way and that if I play the same, I will win Grand Slam title for sure. This is my dream, beyond becoming Number 1 in the world.

I think it is possible. I just have to be consistent.' ALSO READ: Federer, Nadal and Djokovic are the most popular athletes in Australia
