The tennis ace has dated some high profile women over the years, but who?
GRIGOR Dimitrov, who unfortunately lost to Roger Federer in the Round of 16 at Wimbledon 2017, has long been tipped as a future Grand Slam champ.
But his exploits off the court have earned him just as much notoriety…
Who is Grigor Dimitrov?
Grigor Dimitrov is a Bulgarian tennis player, currently ranked number 11 in the world and occasionally nicknamed ‘Baby Fed’ after Roger Federer.
Grigor was born in Haskovo, Bulgaria in May 1991, making him 26 years old.
He is the most successful Bulgarian tennis star to date, being the only player to be ranked inside the ATP Singles and in terms of prize money won.
He has won six singles titles during his career and is the only Bulgarian male player to reach the third round or better at a Grand Slam tournament.
Who has Grigor Dimitrov dated?
Grigor was rumoured to be dating female powerhouse player Serena Williams in early 2012 after meeting through their mutual coach Patrick Mouratoglou.
But after Grigor ditched Patrick, he also reportedly dumped Serena, 35, with her revealing in an interview a few weeks later: “I have given up on dating. It just hasn’t worked out well for me.
“I’m a really emotional person. I give my all and everything. I do make mistakes — like every human does — but the last relationship just was too much of a heartbreak for me.
“I just can’t go through that any more. It was hard.”
It didn’t help Serena that Grigor moved on with her younger tennis rival…
Grigor started dating Russian tennis beauty Maria Sharapova in late 2012, adding fuel to the fire of her rivalry with Serena.
The couple enjoyed a two-year romance before splitting in 2015, with Grigor insisting he wanted to focus on his tennis career.
He said at the time: “Our paths split, we experienced wonderful moments together. I wish her much happiness and success in life and tennis.
“Now I’m concentrated entirely on the game and I’m sure the results will be seen. This is the summer of new beginning for me.”
Indeed Grigor has never looked back since the split, storming through to the Australian Open semi-finals in January, having won his first ATP title since 2014 at the Brisbane International earlier that month.
Tennis star Grigor started dating former Pussycat Doll and X Factor judge Nicole in late 2015, with their romance being made public in January 2016.
Despite the 13-year age gap, the couple have been together for almost two years and generally keep their romance on the down low.
However rumours surfaced in May that all was not well between the pair, with a source telling The Sun exclusively that Nicole, 39, has not seen Grigor for nearly two months.
The source added: “Things haven’t been going well. It’s not looking good that they’ll patch things up.
“Nicole is a very busy woman and Grigor has to travel the world on the tennis tour.
“Recently she’s had a few personal matters to deal with and Grigor has not been able to support her through it.
“It’s not that he’s a bad guy — he’s great — but it isn’t an easy relationship to maintain.
“They have been on a break. This has happened before and they’ve worked through it.”
Only time will tell if the pair are still a love match.
