Grigor Dimitrov experienced the best of Acapulco alongside the WTA’s Eugenie Bouchard on Monday morning. The two rising stars took in the view from high above on a helicopter ride, before boarding a yacht for a hit on a mini tennis court platform on the Acapulco Bay.
“This is definitely the best experience I’ve ever had on tour,” said Dimitrov, the fourth seed this week at the Abierto Mexicano Telcel. “I was happy to be able to do something like this. It is pretty special and we definitely have something to talk about in the future. It was nice to get to do this in such good weather, great city. It was very exciting!”
It marked the first time that either Dimitrov or Bouchard had played on a floating surface. They ended their hit by taking a dive into the warm water.
“It’s definitely nice to take off the morning this way,” said Dimitrov. “Reality will kick in a couple of hours when we have to hit those practice courts.”
