Grigor Dimitrov is up to third in the world rankings after claiming the biggest victory of his career at the ATP Tour Championship – but the Bulgarian is still considered an outsider for the Australian Open in just two months’ time.
Dimitrov won all five matches at the O2 Arena, beating David Goffin in three sets in the final, becoming the first man in 19 years to win the season-ending competition on his debut. The 26-year-old has struggled to make an impression in the majors, but having reached the last four at Wimbledon in 2014 he reached his second semi-final in Melbourne last year, only to be edged out by Rafael Nadal.
Going so close in Australia last time (losing a fifth set thriller), coupled with the boost of his victory in London and the likelihood of a better seeding, means he should perhaps be a touch shorter than the 20/1 currently on offer from William Hill.
