Grigor Dimitrov Announces Coaching Partnership with Roger Rasheed

Share & Comment

Earlier today, Grigor Dimitrov (Player Profile) revealed that he would begin a temporary partnership with Australian coach Roger Rasheed, who previously coached Lleyton Hewitt, Gael Monfils and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.
The decision comes after the Bulgarian No. 1 announced that he would be leaving Sweden’s Good to Great Academy and coach Mikael Tillstrom. Dimitrov had joined the Swedish academy in November of 2012 and had risen from No. 48 to a career-high of No. 26 in May yet it appeared that he wanted to spend more of time in Los Angeles, which would have complicated his training in Sweden.
Dimitrov posted the news of his new coaching partnership on his Facebook account:
Roger (Rasheed) and I have agreed to spend some time in the short term to help me in the journey forward in preparation for 2014 and we both are looking forward to this collaboration.

Dimitrov has made some impressive strides in 2013, having reached his first ATP final in Brisbane, where he lost to British No. 1 Andy Murray. The 23-year-old had another breakthrough performance in Madrid when he beat then-World No. 1 Novak Djokovic in the second round.

The World No. 27 is scheduled to meet Kei Nishikori in the opening round of the Shanghai Rolex Masters. He has been on a 3-match losing streak since his last win in Cincinnati and will be looking to break that streak and make a run in the second-to-last Masters tournament of the season.

  2. why does roger bite his nails all the time, is he just nervous for his player or a habit that’s hard to break. try roger, you can do it. you are so strict w/grigor, be the same w/yourself.
