Within less than one hour Grigor Dimitrov defeated the Dutchman Robin Haase 6-2 6-3 in the first match of the new season at Brisbane International in Australia and advanced to the second round of the tournament.

“Very nice first match, so to speak, for the new year. It’s a great feeling definitely coming back here. It’s always a nice event to start the year with,” said Dimitrov.

“I was happy the way I was serving on the important occasions in every game. I thought I moved quite well on the court, so a that helped ease up on some points and eventually bring me to good opportunities.”

“I’m feeling quite comfortable on the court. Yeah, looking forward to the next round, and hopefully I do good.”

In the second round Grigor will have a tough opponent - ex No 8 Marin Cilic of Croatia. Earlier today he defeated Denis Istomin of Uzbekistan.

“Marin is a very dangerous player, and he’s definitely capable of doing a lot of damage."

“So I just got to be ready and got to make sure that I’m going to have a good service game, and obviously try to, you know, cover a lot of court. He has a decent serve as well."

“It’s going to be an interesting match. Of course I’m looking forward to it.”

Grigor has no scheduled matches for 31 December so his first round doubles match and second round match against Cilic will be on Wednesday or Thursday.

Roger Federer and his long term agent Tony Godsick started a new boutique sports management agency named Team8. The Cleveland-based company will represent the interests of Roger Federer. And the news is that as of 1 January Grigor Dimitrov will also be represented by Federer's agency. The company managed by Tony Godsick has signed also with No 5 Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina.

“We’re trying to be a boutique agency that will manage just a small stable of iconic athletes,” Godsick said in a interview from Pepper Pike, Cleveland, Ohio, where are the offices of the company. “We’re really going to try to be selective here. Some of the other groups, they look to sign as many players as they can and hope a few of them stick and make it, and they really go after the juniors. We’re not going to.”

“I think small is the new big,” he said. “We’re for more of a personalized approach, and you’ve seen it now with so many different athletes.”

Godsick, 42, began working with the former No. 1 player Monica Seles when he was at IMG on a summer internship. He later represented Lindsay Davenport, Anna Kournikova and Tommy Haas.

Godsick is married to Mary Joe Fernandez, a former French Openand Australian Open finalist with whom he has two young children. Godsick began working with Federer in 2005 when Federer returned to IMG after managing many of his own business interests for a brief stretch.
