12-year old Tsegai from Stockholm had to jump in as a coach for Grigor Dimitrov

Tsegai Gebremeskel from Stockholm were closely watching the practise of world number 18 Grigor Dimitrov and the local protegé Mikael Ymer during the latest edition of IF Stockholm Open when the bulgarian suddenly asked for coaching-assistance on court. Tsegai, 12 years old, didn’t hesitate when the opportunity striked him.

– I didn’t doubt it for a second, I just had to do it,  Tsegai says to Tennisportalen. 

Tsegai Gebremeskel from Stockholm, Sweden barely missed a point during the 250-tournament played in the royal tennis club of Stockholm, from Saturdays qualification to the finals on Sunday the following week.

Partly to support his close friends, the Ymer brothers, who subsequently won the doubles, but also to closely watch and take in how the very best in the world train and play. The latter would pay off in the form of a coaching role for the superstar Grigor Dimitrov, a task that would get any 12-year-old to tremble. Tsegai instead handled it with ease.

I never get nervous and do not understand why they are there. It was all just fun and I enjoyed it, a confidently Tsegai says.

What did you guys practise on?

– Mostly serves and in the middle of the practise he asked me: ”What can I do better?”. Then he wanted to play points and my friends, who were closely watching the practise, joined us.

What response did you give him?

Higher ball toss!

Apart from the incredible experience, what do you take with you from the practise?

Firstly, I got to know him better, not only as the tennisstar he is but as a person. Also to see up close how the very best in our sport trains and performs. It was also fun to try on the coaching profession, says Tsegai with a smile on his face.

IF Stockholm Open also drew attention to the practise through their twitter account.
