Grigor Dimitrov: Andy Murray Is A Cool Dude, But My Job Isn’t Done And I’m Not Going To Step Back

Grigor Dimitrov is into his second career Grand Slam quarterfinal, and the 23-year-old is full of confidence despite having to play defending champion Andy Murray on his home Center Court Wimbledon tomorrow.

“First of all I’m happy that I’m in the quarterfinal match,” Dimitrov said Monday after beating Leonardo Mayer. ‘Just going to give credit to myself for that. But my job isn’t over yet.”

But the 23-year-old has reason to be confidence against Murray. Dimitrov beat Murray at Acapulco earlier this year and he showed his grass skills winning Queen’s.

“I’ve practiced against him many times. We kind of know our game pretty well,” Dimitrov said. “It’s his home basically here. He’s been playing a lot of matches on the Centre Court. He knows his way around the grass pretty good. He’s a great mover.

“I’m just going to play my game. I’m not going to step back. I just want to come out with my big game and play my aggressive tennis.

Dimitrov also wants to shed the baby Federer label even though his plays just like the Swiss and is represented by Federer’s firm, Team 8.

“I think now all that thing is starting to fade away,” he said of the Federer comparisons. “I’ve proved myself not once, not twice, that I’m a different person, a different player.”

Regardless of what happen Wednesday, Dimitrov and Murray will remain friends.

“I think we get along pretty good,” Dimitrov said. “I think my team and his team are on pretty good terms. We always have a lot of jokes for us.

“He’s a cool dude.”

Humble Rafa Says:

Dimitrov also wants to shed the baby Federer label even though his plays just like the Swiss and is represented by Federer’s firm, Team 8.

If you play like the Arrogant One, you are represented by an Arrogant Firm, you wear Arrogant undies, how do you separate yourself.

If you quack like a duck, you are a duck.


Tennis Fan Says:

love to see a Dimitrov-Raonic final


SG1 Says:

Not sure Raonic will get through Kyrgios but if he does, anything’s possible.

Intrigued by the Wawa-Fed match. Wawa’s been under radar this Wimbledon. It’d be very cool to see him back up his win in Australia with a big win at Wimbledon.

All the above said, I’m sticking with Murray to get his third slam title. Raonic-Murray final sounds interesting. Tons of contrast.

This is how you act when you continualy get beat by 100 + ranked players. Your mind starts doing tricks on you and you try to do bad comedy in the third person.
