"Our paths split," 24-year-old Dimitrov, currently number 16 in the ATP rankings, told Bulgarian media on Friday. "We experienced wonderful moments together. I wish her much happiness and success in life and in tennis.

"Now I'm concentrated entirely on the game and I'm sure the results will soon be seen... This is the summer of the new beginning for me."

Darren Rovell confirmed via Twitter on Thursday that tennis aces Maria Sharapova and Grigor Dimitrov have called it quits.

This news came after both experienced disappointing run during the Wimbledon earlier in July. Where Serena Williams defeated the beautiful Sharapova for the 17th time. Dimitrov on the other hand is nursing another split as well — with his coach Roger Rasheed.

Dimitrov, who climbed to number eight in the world last year after reaching the Wimbledon semi-finals, has had a lean year and is still to reach a final.

Sharapova announced that her and Dimitrov were a couple in May 2013.
