Rising star Grigor Dimitrov probably thought things couldn’t get much worse after losing to Xaiver Malisse 6-2, 6-4 in the first round of Bucharest on Monday.
But following the match, this nutty reporter corralled the young 20-year-old Bulgarian for an awkward Q&A on the court just moments after he lost. Early round losing players don’t often get interviewed on court after defeats, however Grigor apparently was kind enough to oblige not knowing what he was in for.
We know there’s a language barrier (and maybe an intelligence one also), but it’s bad form to ask a losing player, “What’s happened with you!?!?”, “What that means this VICTORY for you?”, then later follow up with a question about a rumored romance with Serena Williams!
Dimitrov responded to the last question saying, “Everything is good, there is nothing special I don’t know why everyone makes such a big deal out of it. Just nothing.”
For the record, Serena was in the Ukraine over the weekend playing Fed Cup, not in Bucharest as the reporter pressed.
Credit to Dimitrov who again did his best Roger Federer impersonation by politely navigating through the horror with both grace and patience. It’s not easy being a tennis pro sometimes.
