Bulgarian tennis star Grigor Dimitrov has revealed he has never tried alcohol in his life yet.

In an interview with The Guardian, the 27-year-old divulged he is an abstainer but adds he doesn’t follow a stringent diet even as he has been working with a nutritionist since last four years.

“I’ve worked with a nutritionist for about four years and she has been amazingly relaxed,” Dimitrov said.

“I presumed that she was going to be really strict and tell me to eat 20 grams of this and five nuts here, but she just sets a rough pattern and we alter it every few months based on a blood test.

“So, if I’m iron deficient, we’ll increase the broccoli, for instance, but it’s not regimented.

“As long as I don’t overindulge, it’s okay for me to eat burgers and ice-cream occasionally. As for alcohol? I’ve never tried it.”

This is not the first time Dimitrov has spoken of practicing teetotalism.

While being in a relationship with Russian tennis diva Maria Sharapova, he had revealed the ‘hard times’ for not being able to share a drink with her.

“I’ve never tried alcohol. I figure I can create my own buzz. Maria gives me a hard time. She’s like, ‘Share a glass of wine with me,” Dimitrov had said during an interview in 2014.
