Grigor Dimitrov opens up on ‘special relationship’ with new coach Andre Agassi
Grigor Dimitrov says he is ‘humbled by the special relationship’ he has with new coach and tennis legend Andre Agassi.
Dimitrov added Agassi to his coaching team last month after suffering a startling slide down the rankings in 2018.
Agassi is with Dimitrov in Australia, where he saw the Bulgarian get off to the perfect star with a 6-3 6-4 win over Yashioto Nishioka at the Brisbane International.
After the match, Dimitrov discussed Agassi, saying: “We are all very happy in the team that Andre is with us.”
“He’s more than a friend to me, it’s a special relationship.”
“There is just a huge appreciation and I am very humbled to have him by my side.
“Hopefully things will go well on the court for us.”
“I felt I was actually hitting the ball quite all right for our first match of the year.
“There [were] a few things that I would like to maybe improve in the next match, but overall I think it’s off to a positive start.”
