      Thanks for the support, and I am from Bulgaria, so I have been following Grigor up close and I think that he has a lot of potential to be on the top one day, just like the commentators on ESPN mentioned. :)

      Did not know anything about Dmitrov until I read your article. I saw the match the other night. I thought he played tough. Good for him. We need more rivals in tennis. Good article. Voted up.
