Another British summer means another series of hitting and hangout sessions betwixt Grigor Dimitrov and Beckham clan. As reported by Hello! magazine, the Bulgarian continues his years of engaging on and off court with 15-year-old Brit Romeo Beckham, son of a footballing great and a Spice Girl–turned-designer.
"Every time I'm in London, I try to [train] with him – it's something that I enjoy," Dimitrov told Hello! magazine. "I've known him for some time right now. [The Beckhams] are a great family. David and Victoria have also been very understanding. They ask me a lot of questions in regarding Romeo. It's just great to have such a nice relationship with them."
The often-introspective Dimitrov finds himself at No. 6 in the ATP rankings with Wimbledon impending, where he was a 2014 semifinalist. He recently opened up in a Sky Sport interview about his relationship with entertainer Nicole Scherzinger, who is 39 to his 27 years. The two met in 2015 after public breakups with Maria Sharapova and Formula One racer Lewis Hamilton, respectively.
Beckham the Younger certainly hasn't held his pro-player interactions to just Dimitrov. In recent weeks, he has sparred with a local favorite, Kyle Edmund; took in the Novak Djokovic–Marin Cilic final at Queen's; and garnered a quick shot with French Open champ Simona Halep.
How the son of Victoria and David Beckham marches on with his tennis aspirations remains to be seen. Suffice it to say, based in part on his Instagram posts – so often revolving around tennis and videos of him playing it – the kid's got game.
