«Overall, I want to focus only on the positive aspects of the Miami tournament. In Florida I hadn't been able to do well in recent years but I was extremely determined throughout the last week. Important things happened, even behind the scenes, and I beat very good players. And let's not forget that I was down a set and 5-2 in the second round tie-break in the first round.” So Grigor Dimitrov, now back in the ATP top 10, regarding the 1000 in Miami, where he surrendered in the final to Jannik Sinner. The Bulgarian said right on the blue: «He's playing fantastic tennis. It's really impressive how he managed to reach and now maintain this level. Now let's start with the clay season, it's something I'm really looking forward to. I will have some free days to evaluate my progress, see what I did well, what I could have done better and so on. Then back to work.”
Still on Sinner, then Dimitrov added: «Right now Jannik is playing exceptional tennis. There is nothing more to say about it. You notice how focused he is, how determined he is, the way he hits. I don't feel the need to compare him to any other player. Can he play better? I do not know. He's the one who will have to prove it. But he managed to put together a lot of games at the same level, so all the credit goes to him. And he is the best player in the world right now, no doubt.”
