In an interview, Grigor Dimitrov's coach Radek Stepanek commented on his working relationship with the Bulgarian player, who has withdrawn from this week's 's-Hertogenbonsch tournament due to a shoulder injury but he is set to compete again soon.
"We started really working after Rome and you could already see some results. He listens a lot. He went through the first two French Open rounds and then after a great performance, he lost to Stan Wawrinka in three tie-breaks.
He got more confident. Now we will continue our co-operation. On Monday we switch to grass, Queen's is waiting for us, then Wimbledon. That's my favorite part of the season and I am looking forward it to happen", said the former world No.
8. On the tough time that Czech tennis is going through, Stepanek added: "I am sad that you do not see Czech players in any tournament. I hope Tomas Berdych will comeback. I am sorry that there is such a hole behind us. We try to give a right example for a long time.
I knew even since when I was young how important was for me." He concluded: "Without my parents, I would not have been able to turn professional, so I am very grateful. But my father does not like when I speak about it and he says they did it for love. I have a wife at home and a 11-month old daughter, that's my school life. It's more than tennis."
