Grigor Dimitrov Dumps His Coach Roger Rasheed
After failing to build off a breakout 2014, Grigor Dimitrov has parted ways with Australian coach Roger Rasheed.
“After much thought I have decided to end my working relationship with Roger,” Dimitrov tweeted this evening from Wimbledon. “We had many accomplishments together and I wish him all the best going forward. I want to thank him for all his hard work and support over the past couple of years.”
The two hooked up in October of 2013, and the Dimitrov won the Stockholm title soon after.
This season, though, Dimitrov struggled in the Slams losing to Jack Sock at the French before a loss to Richard Gasquet in the third round at Wimbledon where he made the semifinals a year before.
He broke through the Top 10 reaching as high as No. 8. Following Wimbledon he’ll fall to around No. 15.
“After spending an exiting [sic] and successful period together Grigor has decided to end our relationship,” Rasheed posted. “I truly enjoyed our work and delivering my platform – I respect his decision and wish him nothing but success in his endeavors to achieve his goal in the world of upper echelon tennis.”
