The best Bulgarian tennis player Grigor Dimitrov has a great second half of the 2023 season, and the end of the year is more than excellent – the final of the ATP Masters 1000 tournament in Paris.
This week, Grisho reminisced about his best days and with back-to-back wins against Lorenzo Musetti, Daniil Medvedev, Alexander Bublik, Hubert Hurkach and Stefanos Tsitsipas secured his second final of the campaign.
Dimitrov’s rival in the dispute for the trophy in the Bercy hall is none other than the record holder of Grand Slam titles and world No. 1 in men’s tennis, Novak Djokovic. The grand final starts at 16:00 Bulgarian time and you will be able to follow it LIVE online here:
The match started nervously, with errors from both sides in the opening minutes, but despite this, there were no breakthrough chances. That changed in the seventh game, when Grigor forced two forehands, which also meant Djokovic’s first break point. However, another error from the Bulgarian’s racket followed and so Djokovic made a breakthrough for 4:3. The Serbian consolidated without any particular problems for 5:3, coming one step closer to winning the set. In the next game, Dimitrov won his serve hard to reduce his deficit to 4:5 and thus force Novak to serve for the first part. In the decisive moment, the world No. 1 showed some hesitation, missing his first set ball, but in the second Grisho sent the ball out and thus the first part went to the asset of the record holder of Grand Slam titles.
