Grigor Dimitrov came dangerous close to banging his head into the side of a shallow pool while on vacation this week. The 23-year-old, who made his first Slam semifinal last week at Wimbledon, is on a well-earned vacation with girlfriend Maria Sharapova. He posted a video of himself jumping into a pool, poking fun of his numerous hard falls on the grass at Wimbledon, and he's lucky it was indeed a "soft landing."
That was a little too close for comfort. Dimitrov's hard-charging coach Roger Rasheed saw the video and didn't sound too pleased that his charge was getting a little bit reckless with his body.
@GrigorDimitrov Take a look at that vision, not far from the side wall on landing hey, good judgement or lucky ?? Have fun…..— roger rasheed (@roger_rasheed) July 9, 2014
If you're a tennis player taking a much deserved and necessary post-Wimbledon vacation, here are the rules:
Rule No. 1: Have fun.
Rule No. 2: Don't get hurt.
Rule No. 3: Don't let your coach know you almost got hurt.
Two out of three ain't bad, Grigor.
