Healthy Grigor Dimitrov looks forward to ATP Dubai

Bulgarian ace Grigor Dimitrov is looking forward to featuring at next week's ATP Dubai. The world No. 4 took a week off to rest and regroup a bit after a challenging Rotterdam campaign. Dimitrov refused to withdraw or retire during any of his matches at last week's ATP Rotterdam though he was battling with illness.

The 26-year-old fell just a step away from making it all the way in Rotterdam as he was demolished in the final by the great Roger Federer 6-3 6-2. "The good thing in tennis - there's always the next week," Dimitrov said.

"You pretty much can play every week that you want. There's always that silver lining." No. 1 seed Dimitrov has been drawn to meet world No. 116 Malek Jaziri in the Dubai first round. The Bulgarian made his Dubai debut in 2011 when he won two qualifying matches to reach the main draw.

The 27-year-old was then defeated by French Richard Gasquet in the first round. Also read: Marin Cilic out of Acapulco .
