Wilson Next Gen player Dimitrov continues his climb with BLX

Grigor Dimitrov swung his Wilson Six.One Tour BLX tennis racket to reach the finals of the ATP Challenger in Orleans, France to achieve a career high rank and make him the youngest player in the Top 120 on the ATP World Tour.
It has been another great week of tennis for Dimitrov, as he defeated ATP Tour World #73 Lacko and scored a big semifinals win over ATP Tour World #32 Michael Llodra, before being edged out by  Nicolas Mahut 2-6 7-6 7-6 in the final.
Powered by his Wilson BLX racket, Dimitrov’s Orleans results marks his seventh final of the year and brings him one step closer to reaching his year end goal of Top 100.
“Grigor is an amazing talent and has often been touted as the ‘Next Roger Federer.’ Those are high expectations,” said Wilson Global Director Massimo Calvelli. “It’s really nice to see Grigor start coming into himself and mold his own game. The possibilities are endless for Grigor and the Wilson Team looks forward to continuing to help him reach his goals.”
Dimitrov will play the Eckental ATP Tour Challenger next week.

Dimitrov continues to rise with Wilson BLX

Grigor Dimitrov swung his Wilson Six.One Tour BLX tennis racket to take his third straight ATP Tour Challenger title in Bangkok.

Dimitrov has now won 27 of his last 28 matches and is slated to reach another career high #136 on the ATP World Tour this week after gaining 80 ATP Tour points.

Dimitrov is starting to come into his own and prove why he is one of the top prospects of Wilson’s Next Gen.

We caught up with the 19 year old Dimitrov shortly after his win.

Q:What are your goals till end of year and 2011?

Grigor Dimitrov: Before the end of this year, I would like to get into Top 100 to get a jump start for Australian Open. And 2011 is gonna be an exciting year for me, so I’m looking forward to it. And of course, I have high expectations for my game and attack the Top 50, but most important is to stay healthy and in good condition. 

Q: What is the picture/screen saver on your Blackberry?

Grigor Dimitrov: On my BB my picture is: black and white wallpaper over looking New York City made by Henri Silberman! 

Q: What is your off court style?

Grigor Dimitrov: I don’t know from where should I start!! haha. I like clothes a lot. Actually in the end of the day, I’m trying to get off the tennis gear, when I go for dinner or have time off. Love stores, you can find all sorts of nice stuff in outlets and for sure in the expensive top brands stores. I personally like retro and rebel style, therefore my favorite designer was Alexander McQueen. All of his lines and models were different every time and you can find your style in it and you can express yourself in the way you want.

Q: Who would you like to see in concert?

Grigor Dimitrov: Well, I like all types of music but if I could really pick one, that would be the rapper Lil Wayne. I’ve been following him for a while and I like the background of his life and way to the top.

Q: What do you love about your Wilson Six.One Tour BLX?

Grigor Dimitrov: Simple: It’s THE BEST racket ever!!!

“It’s a great feeling to be touted as a player to watch,” said Dimitrov. “But winning is most important and my BLX racket is helping me do that.”

19 year old Dimitrov has been in great form through the summer, winning 4 ITF Pro Circuit Futures tournaments and the ATP Tour Geneva challenger on clay courts and then capturing his win in Bangkok on hard courts.

“Grigor has the great ability to play on every surface and has a lot variety in his game,” said Massimo Calvelli, Wilson Global Tour Director. “Sometimes those capabilities can take a bit longer to come together, so it’s nice to see Grigor already having success. We are excited to see what the future holds.”

Dimitrov will play another ATP Tour Challenger in Bangkok this week.
