Just hours after embarrassing Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova 6-2, 6-1 in the Brisbane final, Serena showed up to a local restaurant to do one of her favourite things — karaoke.
But come on — Serena can’t be good at everything, right? Well, apparently she can’t beat Jeff Daniels (IE: Will McAvoy … any Newsroom fans out there?) at ping-pong.
I’m calling it now: Serena will win the Australian Open … unless she suffers a pedicure injury.
Never heard of him? Well, that’s fair. Grigor Dimitrov is only 21-years-old, ranked No. 48 in the world and he’s never won an ATP title.
This week Dimitrov reached his first career ATP final, where he eventually lost to Andy Murray 7-6, 6-4 in the Brisbane final.
Peter Lundgren, who was Roger Federer’s coach in his formative years, has compared the young Bulgarian to the 17-Grand Slam champion. Dimitrov is very talented and will become a household name in due time.
But before Dimitrov becomes a star on the court, he’s already making the tabloids off the court — Dimitrov is reportedly dating Maria Sharapova.
Maria Sharapova is off the market again. Got confirmation she’s dating Bulgarian tennis player, 21-year-old Grigor Dimitrov
Dimitrov and Sharapova were first spotted together in early December walking around Milan. Dimitrov was eating Sugarpova candy at the time. You can’t make stuff like this up.
So what did Dimitrov have to say about their reported relationship?
“What about that?” he asked with a smirk on Sunday. “I never talk about my private … yeah. Sorry.” Awkward.
This isn’t the first time Dimitrov has dated a big tennis star. Last season the rising star reportedly dated Serena Williams when they were both working with coach Patrick Mouratoglou. This is when things get juicy. Guess who Serena is dating now? Patrick Mouratoglou.
