Grigor Dimitrov steals the show at ABN Amro

Wimbledon and US Open junior champ, Grigor Dimitrov made his professional debut at the ABN Amro this week and he certainly made good use of the wild card given him.

First he defeated Tomas Berdych 4-6, 6-3, 6-4.

And last night, he pushed Rafael Nadal to a three setter.

Nadal survived after pulling out a 7-5, 3-6, 6-2 victory to advance to the quarterfinals.
“He will certainly be a great player and for sure reach the top 10,” Nadal said.
Grigor Dimitrov's new coach, Peter Lundgren, who has coached Marcelo Rios, Marat Safin and Roger Federer, considers the Bulgarian one of the world's biggest talents.
"This boy has the potential to win a "Grand Slam" tournament. He's even better than Federer was when he was his age.

"Grigor makes excellent volleys and has better physic than Roger. We are now starting to advance in the men's tournaments and hope to enter the top 100 this year", Lundgren comments.
With his good looks and talent, this boy is definitely going to go far.

Check out a couple of his photos from the US Open and Wimbledon last year.
