Grigor Dimitrov revealed after winning the Brisbane International that he had thoroughly enjoyed his time at the tournament.

The Bulgarian clinched his first title for 30 months by beating the third seed, Kei Nishikori, 6-2 2-6 6-3 in a fluctuating final.

Dimitrov had been in good form towards the end of 2016 after enduring a difficult couple of years and is keen to continue his resurgence in the weeks ahead, firstly at the Apia International Sydney and then at the Australian Open.

Dimitrov, who also beat Dominic Thiem and Milos Raonic in Brisbane, last won a title at Queen's in 2014, but the 25-year-old believes his career is now back on track.

He said: "It's been a pretty emotional past year, so this trophy means a lot. These ten days have been the most fun I have ever had on a tennis court."

Dimitrov can be backed at 33/1 to win the Australian Open, while Andy Murray is available at 13/8, Novak Djokovic at 13/8 and Roger Federer at 20/1.

Meanwhile, Thanasi Kokkinakis and his fellow Australian Jordan Thompson won the doubles title in Brisbane by recording a 7-6 6-4 victory against Gilles Muller and Sam Querrey.
