Dimitrov withdrew from Marseille, takes break following Rotterdam Open

Dimitrov withdrew from Marseille, takes break following Rotterdam Open

Grigor Dimitrov announced that he will be withdrawing from the Marseille ATP tournament.

The Bulgarian, who won titles at the Brisbane International and the Sofia Open on home soil, is in need of a rest.

"For the first time in my career I have won so many matches in a short period," Dimitrov said. "I had to get used to it because three days ago I was playing the final in Sofia. It's going very quick. The most important is to stay healthy and to do the right things."

Dimitrov's decision to stay healthy and fit is a sound one especially in a time where many tennis stars are highlighting the benefits of resting.

Dimitrov is not the only one withdrawing from Marseille either as Mischa Zverev is also skipping the ATP event.
