His dad might be a football legend, but Romeo Beckham is set to be the next big thing when it comes to tennis – according to Gregor Dimitrov.
The Wimbledon star – who is currently ranked sixth in the world – revealed he’s been given the task of training David and Victoria Beckham’s son, and has high hopes that “he’ll go far”.
Speaking about his prodigy, Grigor said: “Every time I’m in London, I try to [train] with him – it’s something that I enjoy.
“I’ve known him for some time right now. They [the Beckhams] are a great family. David and Victoria have also bee very understanding, they ask me a lot of questions in regarding Romeo. It’s just great to have such a nice relationship with them.”
Despite his dad’s incredible career in football, it’s always been tennis that caught Romeo’s eye. And Grigor isn’t the first one to notice the teenager’s potential.
After a ten-day skills workshop in London in 2015, a tennis coach described Romeo as “talented” and a “natural”.
Having witnessed his skills first-hand, he said: “I’m not sure his parents realise how good he is. Romeo really loves tennis. He is really into it and very talented.
“He has a lot of talent and very good hand-eye coordination.
“Romeo has a natural swing and is very enthusiastic, he just loves it. He kept telling me and I could see how focused he was.”
Since then, Romeo has been taking tennis pretty seriously – and regularly litters his Instagram with pictures and videos of him showing off his skills.
And, Romeo isn’t the only Beckham child with a secret talent. His older brother Brooklyn, 19, is a keen photographer, and his younger brother Cruz, 13, has been dubbed the next Justin Bieber.
Is there anything this family can’t do?!
