Bulgaria’s top tennis player Grigor Dimitrov remains 3rd in the world tennis ranking this week with 5,150 points.

Dimitrov set this record in his sporting career after winning the last ATP tournament for the season in London last month. The Bulgarian player will end the year as the world’s number 3, numbers 1 and 2 being Rafael Nadal, Spain with 10,645 points and Roger Federer, Switzerland with 9,605 points.

In the meantime it transpired that Grigor Dimitrov will no longer be represented by Roger Federer’s agency – Team8. The contract concluded by Grigor Dimitrov with Team8 on 1 January, 2014, expires at the end of this year and will not be renewed. After it expires, Dimitrov’s interests will be in the hands of his long-time manager Georgi Stoimenov, with whom the Bulgarian tennis player has been working since the start of his professional career.
