Dimitrov: “Zizou is not here by chance”

Grigor Dimitrov (ATP 10) is Zizo Burgess’s opponent in the third round of Roland Garros on Friday. The 33-year-old Bulgarian, formerly ranked third in the world, defeated Hungarian Fabian Marozsan (ATP 43) in three sets (6-0, 6-3, 6-4) in his second round.

The experienced Dimitrov is having an excellent season. He won the Brisbane tournament at the beginning of that year and reached the Miami final at the end of March. However, the Bulgarian is wary of Burgess.

Dimitrov said: “Zizou has been achieving good results for a while. I don’t think he got here by chance.” “This is the third round of a Grand Slam tournament. I’ll start the match like any other match.”

“I’m not focusing too much on my opponent, but mainly on myself. I want to improve my game. I’ll continue on the same path. This is working well at the moment.”

Dimitrov? For me, he’s just an opponent I want to catch.
