It’s no secret that Bulgarian tennis star Grigor Dimitrov is a good-looking dude. After all, this tall drink of water with the billion-watt smile managed to seduce the gorgeous, famously cool-as-a-cucumber Slam-winner Maria Sharapova into a giddy romance. And he’s a favorite with women of all ages, including sobbing, smitten ball girls.
So it’s not difficult to imagine that he might have a similar effect on the men in his life. In fact, we here at TennisInsideOut.com always enjoy imagining all sorts of things, because what’s more fun than taking a perfectly innocent occurrence and adding heaps of potential meaning to it?
Take umpire Ali Nili, for instance, sitting up on the chair during a changeover in Shanghai and suggestively stroking his, erm, microphone as Grigor Dimitrov towels off below.
