Here’s what Dimitrov had to say about the idealistic behaviour of his mother –

Oh, my mum,by far! My mum,she’s the one and only. Why does she inspire me? My mum inspires me a lot because…obviously I’ve known her all my life,and she’s never…I’ve never seen her going through a mood swing, or anything like that. She’s always so strong- probably all the mums are like this. It’s so nice to just have somebody that I’m able to call mum, who you can not only lean on,but have as a friend.”

Dimitrov seems to be really inspired by his mother. In a gruelling sports career, having the safety valve of a good family relationship is very helpful. It helps you to look beyond the pitfalls and have a positive outlook. Dimitrov will next be seen competing at Indian Wells.
