Grigor Dimitrov’s had won the biggest title of his life by winning the Cincinatti Open. He has defeated Aussie Nick Kyrgios 6-3, 7-5 to win the Western & Southern Open title in Cincinnati, his third ATP World Tour crown of the year and first at the Masters 1000 level in his career.
He has also claimed three crowns in 2014, winning The Queen’s Club, Bucharest and Acapulco and had been without any big titles for a while.
“I’m just happy. There’s nothing else I can say, honestly. I’m just happy and I’m humbled to have that trophy in my hands, and especially to win here, my first Masters 1000. It’s just amazing. I always like this tournament. I have played it quite a few times and always thought this can be maybe one of the first ones, and it is the first one,” Dimitrov said. He further added “Going to the Open, it’s for sure a lot of positivity with it, but the most important thing now is just to stay grounded, keep on doing the same work, believe in myself, and just prepare the best way that I can for the Open,” Dimitrov said.
Dimitrov started the year perfectly on hard courts with a win ratio of 16-1 en route to the Australian Open semi-finals and titles in Brisbane and Sofia. In the race towards championship he has won 52 of 53 service games. After the game got over, he shared an emotional embrace with his coach Dani Vallverdu.
