Rotterdam, The Netherlands

Dimitrov© Henk KosterGrigor Dimitrov shares a joke in Rotterdam.

At the age of 22, Grigor Dimitrov is the youngest member of the Top 20 in the Emirates ATP Rankings. The Bulgarian lifted his first ATP World Tour title at the 2013 If Stockholm Open (d. Ferrer).

Speaking to at the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament, the World No. 19 reveals the last time…

I cooked for myself or others? What is your speciality?
It was probably two months ago, before leaving for Australia. I can pretty much do anything with chicken.

I paid money to hire a court or buy tennis balls?
A very good question… Balls, actually, I had to buy a couple of cans a few months ago. Pay for a court… that was years ago!

I strung a tennis racquet?
It must have been six years ago. I think I’d still remember how to string it, but I might be a bit rusty and it would take a lot longer than handing it to the pros.

I forgot a family member’s birthday?
I’m pretty organised, so this has never happened… yet!

I last asked someone for their autograph?
I never have actually. I have never had the chance to get Pete Sampras’ or one of my idols.

I played another sport that might have caused me a minor injury?
I play soccer and have done a bit of motocross. They can both be pretty dangerous. But I’ve never had a big injury from them, only the odd graze.

I missed a flight?
It was four years ago, from London to somewhere in the United States. But I can’t remember which city.
