Former world No. 3 Grigor Dimitrov has made it clear that he hasn’t given up on his hopes of winning a Grand Slam title.
Dimitrov, 31, has been close to winning a Grand Slam several times but he has yet to make a big Grand Slam breakthrough.
Dimitrov is a three-time Grand Slam semifinalist, having reached the last-4 stage at the Australian Open, Wimbledon and the US Open.
“Yeah, of course,” Dimitrov told Tennis Majors. “I mean, I still believe that. I’ve had it on quite a few occasions. The past slams I’ve had good results. Now, unfortunately, I just have to play very, very good players early on second, third round. But I believe that there’s a lot more to come on my end. I think I can push through it and who knows when, what and where? But the only thing that I need to focus on is how I’m going to go on and about.”
Dimitrov loves the Queen’s Club
Dimitrov turned pro 14 years ago and he has been a regular participant at the Queen’s Club since 2009.
The Queen’s Club is a place where Dimitrov has had success as he made it all the way at the tournament in 2014.
Also, Dimitrov reached the Queen’s semifinal in 2012 and 2017.
This week, Dimitrov made a positive start to his Queen’s campaign as he beat top-ranked British tennis player Cameron Norrie in the first round.
“It was a tournament that I have really admired, since day one. I was one of the fortunate ones to get some help from that tournament early on and that wild card. And I played the juniors here as well. So there were, there were a lot of like positive things on that note,” Dimitrov said of Queen’s.
Dimitrov is certainly hoping to do well at Queen’s this week and then go to Wimbledon extremely confident.
