Grigor Dimitrov recently showed the fans another side of himself by turning into a model for Lacoste's new underwear line.
Dimitrov became a Lacoste ambassador in May 2023, joining stars like Venus Williams, Novak Djokovic, and Daniil Medvedev. On Thursday, the French fashion house posted a couple of pictures on Instagram featuring Grigor Dimitrov wearing the new Lacoste underwear.
“Comfort, elegance, freedom of movement. Lacoste revamps men's underwear. Embodying the new collection is an exceptional tennis champion: @grigordimitrov #LacosteUnderwear,” Lacoste captioned the image.
Grigor Dimitrov was a Nike ambassador earlier. He first rocked Lacoste tennis gear at the 2023 Roland Garros Championships.
Dimitrov is currently competing at the 2024 Brisbane International along with top tennis stars like Rafael Nadal, Holger Rune, Aryna Sabalenka, Jelena Ostapenko, and others.
Dimitrov, who turned 32 in May 2023, has had quite a successful career. He reached a career-high ranking of No. 3 on the ATP rankings in 2017. He has also made it to the semifinals of the Australian Open, Wimbledon and the US Open over the course of his career.
