What can we expect from Grigor Dimitrov this year?
16 February 2024
Starting the year out as the No. 13 ranked player in the world, it would not be unfair to expect a lot from Grigor Dimitrov this season. He has already started the 2024 campaign in top fashion, which will only intensify the expectations placed on his shoulders.

The Bulgarian has a 10-2 record to begin his 2024 season as we approach the middle of February, having already claimed his first title of the year. He defeated Holger Rune 7-6(5) 6-4 in Brisbane in the first tournament of the year, before heading to the Australian Open.

It was not the best Grand Slam for him, though, as he was dumped out in the Round of 32 by Portuguese Nuno Borges (ranked #69) in four sets despite taking the first 7-6(3), 4-6, 2-6, 6-7(6). However, he returned to action at the Marseille ATP 250 event and made his way to the final before being beaten by Ugo Humbert 4-6, 3-6 on the indoor surface.

Nonetheless, these performances will have provided fans of his and those who like to bet on the Bulgarian with added confidence that he can achieve success throughout the year. With betting promotions like https://www.bemybet.com/bg/betano-registracia/ available, it would not be a surprise if we were to see many starting to watch the #13’s efforts a little more closely.

What to expect this season from Grigor Dimitrov
While it may be difficult to see him reaching (or surpassing) his previous best world ranking of #3 which he obtained in 2017, it would not be a shock if we were to see him climb the rankings further and break into the top 10 at the very least. Given his start to the year, we do not feel that would be unreasonable, either.

The 32-year-old has been able to win almost twice as many matches as he has lost, boasting an exceptional record of 423 wins and 275 losses. It wouldn’t be a shock if he were to break the 500-win milestone this year, nor would it be a shock if he exceeded this tally with ease, given the amount of tennis he is expected to play.

His earnings will also likely exceed the next milestone. His performances year to date are estimated to have fetched him approximately $334,063 in prize money, which is good going considering 2024 is less than two months old so far. He has accumulated a total of $25,470,784, so it would not be a surprise if he were able to climb into the next million milestone by the time the year were to come to an end.

In terms of his tennis, we would expect Dimitrov to continue to improve his game and challenge the very best. It would be nice to see him go further in a Grand Slam than the semi-final, although his last appearance in this round was back in 2019 at the US Open. With the French Open next - the only Grand Slam he has yet to reach the semi-final - perhaps he will record his best finish here and use it to build on his impressive career further.
