Grigor Dimitrov trains with Rafael Nadal in Mallorca: TennisKafe

first_imgDespite the early dropout from the US Open, Grigor Dimitrov’s desire to play has not diminished at all. On the contrary – in recent days, our first racket trains together not with anyone, but with the tennis player who has a reputation as the most diligent worker in the Tour.From posts on Instagram and Twitter it became clear that Grigor Dimitrov has been training together with Rafael Nadal for several days at the Spaniard’s academy in Mallorca. Yesterday, the two practiced on hard courts, as the rain forced them to stay indoors, but today the weather conditions allowed them to train on clay. This is not the first time Dimitrov has trained at the Matador Academy. Our first rocket did this in 2017, and the process was obviously fruitful, as a little later the Bulgarian achieved one of the greatest successes in his career – winning the title of Masters in Cincinnati. The Bulgarian arrived in Mallorca immediately after the end of his participation in the US Open, until the Spaniard took part in the tournament in New York and in recent weeks has devoted himself entirely to preparing for the French Open.Nadal will pursue the amazing 13th Roland Garros title, while Dimitrov will try to go further than the third round, which is his best achievement so far at the tournament in Paris.The men’s tournament at Roland Garros is expected to be significantly stronger than the one at the US Open, as so far only two players from the Top 100 will certainly not participate – the permanently injured Roger Federer and Nick Kyrios, who last month announced that he will not to play in tournaments in Europe.TennisKafe.comlast_img
