Grigor Dimitrov has opened up on his sufferings following his split with Maria Sharapova, almost three years after their break up.

In an interview with MR PORTER, Dimitrov revealed he grew ‘big beard’ and ‘fought with people’ besides going through a rough patch after mutually parting ways with Sharapova due to ‘split paths’ back in 2015.

“I stopped [working] with my coach [Roger Rasheed]. I lost my ranking. I basically sucked at tennis. On a personal level, I was fighting with people and I went through my break-up. And I was tired, simple as that. I was tired of everything, one by one, falling apart,” the 27-year-old said.

It wasn’t long, though, before Dimitrov found his new love in American pop star Nicole Scherzinger, who turned 40 on Saturday.

The duo is known to be seeing each other since the beginning of 2016. And even as they have been quite private with their relationship, they are often spotted enjoying some time together.

The current world No. 6, however, said, it’s not easy to be in a long-distance relationship.

“It’s not easy. The schedules are very heavy. But she’s doing a better job than I am of being able to come to most of the places I’m at,” he said.
