Grigor Dimitrov finished the best season of his career with the biggest title of his life.
Dimitrov won his fifth consecutive match at the ATP Finals on Sunday, beating David Goffin 7-5, 4-6, 6-3 to win the season-ending championships during his debut.
It’s the fourth title of Dimitrov’s 2017 – a career-high – and the eighth of his career.
The right-hander was already going to climb to a career-high No. 3 in the year-end Emirates ATP Rankings.
But now he’ll do so emphatically and with a heap of momentum heading into his 2018 season.
He became the first debutant to win the Nitto ATP Finals title since Spaniard Alex Corretja in 1998 (d. Moya).
The Bulgarian, who finished 5-0 this week in London, will earn $2,549,000 in prize money and 1,500 Emirates ATP Rankings points.
