Maria Sharapova and Grigor Dimitrov have brought an end to their relationship after seeing each other for several years. The announcement was made by Dimitrov in an interview given to a Bulgarian TV channel.

Sharapova began dating Dimitrov after her split with NBA star Sasha Vujacic. It was widely reported that the 28-year-old Russian and the 24-year-old Dimitrov helped each other train for tennis and had an affectionate relationship off the court as well. The split then will come as a surprise to fans of both players. "Our paths split. We experienced wonderful moments  together and I wish her much happiness and success in life and in tennis," Dimitrov said in the interview.

Although Sharapova has not broken her silence on the matter, Dimitrov is now ready to train with renewed vigour. "Now I'm concentrated entirely on the game and I'm sure the results will soon be seen. This is the summer of a new beginning for me," he said.
