Reeling Grigor Dimitrov has settled on a new coach. After parting with Roger Rasheed after Wimbledon, the talented Bulgarian has tapped Juan Martin del Potro’s former coach Franco Davin to the same position on his team on a trial basis for the upcoming Asian swing.
Davin and del Potro this summer. The Argentine Davin stays in Roger Federer’s Team * agency which represents both del Potro and Dimitrov.
Dimitrov reached a career-high No. 8 last year, but after struggling for most of 2015 is now down to No. 19. He had just six wins at the Grand Slam level and only made two semifinals in Brisbane and Istanbul.
Davin coached del Potro to his 2009 US Open title. He was also coaching Gaston Gaudio when he won the 2004 French Open.
Davin will join Dimitrov for Kuala Lumpur and then Tokyo.
