It might not have been the match he was able to win, but Grigor Dimitrov won over a ton of fans with his kind gesture on Sunday at the Sony Open.
The 16th-ranked player in the world was in a first set tiebreaker with Kei Nishikori when he noticed one of the ballgirls with what looked like a touch of a heat stroke. The young lady was struggling to get Dimitrov his towel, and after signaling a few times he went over to assist her to the sidelines.
Dimitrov used a timeout to get the girl the needed attention, and despite a straight set loss to Nishikori, he was the man on Sunday in Miami.
