Epitome of Cool: Meet Maria Sharapova's Bulgarian tennis player boyfriend

Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov, 24, and Maria Sharapova 28, started dating since 2012. He ranks 11 seeds in the competitive world of tennis. Also, his tall, cool and handsome appeal has seen him rank tenth in a recent poll of the '50 Sexiest Men Alive' by MTV - ahead of One Direction heart throb Harry Styles, male model David Gandy and actor Brad Pitt.                  
When asked how he met her, he said...'I emailed her out of the blue. I felt we always had this thing for each other,' he told the Telegraph. 'We were both in China, me in Shanghai, her in Beijing. I sat down for lunch and saw her playing on television and emailed right away. We started talking a bit then a month later, when the season was over, we saw each other and that became that.'

It's perhaps not surprising that Maria's stature in the tennis world did not intimidate him as he'd previously stepped out with Serena Williams.. More photos from his Instagram page below where he has amass a huge follower base of up to 223,000 followers.

With the help of his tennis coach father, he won Wimbledon as a junior and turned professional at the age of 16.
