Subject: Lundgren: Grigor Dimitrov is even better than Federer
Grigor Dimitrov's new coach, the Swiss Peter Lundgren, who has coached
Marcelo Rios, Marat Safin and Roger Federer, considers the Bulgarian
one of the world's biggest talents, "Meridian Match" reports, quoted
by tposport.bg.
The specialist even compared Grisha with the 13-times winner of the
"Grand Slam" Roger Federer in front of the "Sundsvall".

"This boy has the potential to win a "Grand Slam" tournament. He's
even better than Federer was when he was his age. Grigor makes
excellent volleys and has better physic than Roger. We are now
starting to advance in the men's tournaments and hope to enter the top
100 this year", Lundgren comments.

The Swiss paper "Sundsvall" also reveals that Grigor himself contacted
Lundgren in the Patick Muratoglu's academy in Paris. Thus our player
received several ATP invitations, which at this point of his career
would otherwise be impossible.

Ah, didn't notice that. That's why they had "Swiss paper" too.

I think Lundgren is overdoing it when he says "WE [emphasis added] are
now starting to advance..."

Let the player credit his coach and his corner. The coach should
avoid such phrasing.

Granted, it could be a quirk of translation. What shared language do
coach and pupil have? English? French?

Well of course it is Swedish, with a name of a Swedish city, and
Lundgren speaking in it.

Very very uncautious to pump a young boy up like this, Lundgren is no Toni
Nadal. On the other hand Federer ditched him with a comment like "I can book
flights by myself" so...

Yes, I posted this some days ago. It will be exciting to see how far he
can go.
