Grigor Dimitrov and Stan Wawrinka have crossed each other’s paths a lot during the past few years. The possible reason might be their equal standing in the current tennis scenario. Even right now, while Wawrinka is ranked 17th in the world, Dimitrov stands at 19th. Their most recent encounter came at the Acapulco Open where Dimitrov outclassed Wawrinka in the quarter-finals.
In some ways, both have similar goals at the moment, even though they are at very different phases in their career. While time is running out for Stan Wawrinka, there is still a lot left for Dimitrov. However, both of them are currently in the resurgent phase of their careers, looking to reclaim past glory. Both suffered from career-altering injuries followed by poor form.
However, the present has seen both the stars fighting back and putting on some good performances. What many don’t know is that the two also share a very close friendship. Of course, they have also teamed up at multiple events for the doubles competition. A brief look into their bromance was given to the fans when Wawrinka posted a video on his Twitter account.
The peculiar video was posted by Stan Wawrinka that saw both the players inside their respective cars in a parking lot. Both had their windows open. A cheerful Dimitrov shot some grapes towards Wawrinka who tried to catch them with his mouth.
After failing multiple times, Wawrinka finally succeeded in getting his mouth around one of the grapes. However, as per Wawrinka himself, that might not have been the best decision. He posted the video with the caption – “Maybe, I shouldn’t have eaten that grape @GrigorDimitrov”.
Wawrinka was alluding to the recent match between the two at the Cincinnati Masters where Dimitrov was the one to claim the victory. However, Wawrinka would go on to lead their head to head 7-5 in the future. Let’s hope that both the stars are able to achieve their goals in the near future.
