Tennis ace Grigor Dimitrov, 26, hailed his Pussycat Dolls singer girlfriend Nicole Scherzinger, 39, after he won the prestigious year-ending ATP World Tour Finals title in London on Sunday. Bulgarian Dimitrov beat Belgian David Goffin 7-5, 4-6, 6-3 at the O2 Arena, and then said that his gorgeous other half "deserves quite a bit of credit for the victory."

"I want to thank one person here, my girlfriend Nicole. She's somewhere, hiding. She deserves quite a bit of credit this week. She's been amazing," said Dimitrov about his partner, who was unable to attend the final as she was busy judging reality TV show, The X Factor. Dimitrov and Scherzinger have reportedly been dating since July 2015, soon after the tennis player split from another tennis star, Russian Maria Sharapova. Incidentally, Scherzinger also split from Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton the same year.
