Bulgaria’s best tennis player Grigor Dimitrov announced at a press conference that he will be the captain of the Bulagrian tennis team at the forthcoming ATP Cup which begins on January 3, 2020 in Australia. Dimitrov has not yet invited tennis players in his team, but his future team should consist of at least 3 athletes. Dimitrov is not planning to participate at the Summer Olympics in Tokyo next year, because he did not take part at the Davies Cup tournament and does not have the right to play on the next Olympic Games. Dimitrov will be training in Monte Carlo for the future ATP Cup. It is not clear yet when he will start training, because he does not have a coach yet. Practically, Dimitrov has not started working with Radek Stepanek. Moreover, he can always rely on advices by Andre Agassi. The Bulgarian tennis player is not in a rush to appoint a new coach and the fact that he is training alone does not seem to bother him.
