Grigor Dimitrov will compete in UTS Frankfurt this weekend.

He replaces US Open runner-up Daniil Medvedev – and will assume the nickname “G-Unit” for the quickfire, adrenaline-fuelled competition.

He joins a field that comprises Gael “La Monf” Monfils, Andrey “Rublo” Rublev, Diego “El Peque” Schwartzman, Casper “The Iceman” Ruud, “The Thunder” Jan-Lennard Struff, “The Rocket” Christopher Eubanks, and Benoit “The Rebel” Paire.

Dimitrov is no stranger to UTS, featuring in UTS2 during the summer of 2020.

Medvedev: The last two weeks were very challenging

In a video addressed to the UTS fans, Medvedev explained his withdrawal.

“The last two weeks were very challenging for me, for my body, probably the two toughest weeks I have ever had on the tour,” he said. “It’s really disappointing because I really wanted to play in front of you. I like the event, I like the format, so I wish all the players and the event itself the best of luck. Hopefully it’s going to be a great show as always, and I hope to see you guys next time.”

UTS Frankfurt begins on Friday at the Süwag Energie Arena.
