Sofia: Wimbledon semi-finalist Grigor Dimitrov has been named Bulgaria`s Athlete of the Year in a nationwide poll conducted by sports journalists while French Open runner-up Simona Halep won the award in neigbouring Romania.

Dimitrov`s three ATP titles on different surfaces and his run to the semi-finals at Wimbledon were for many Bulgarians the highlights of the year.

Halep was a comfortable winner in the annual poll conducted by the Romanian daily Gazeta Sporturilor.

Halep rose to number two in the world in August, the highest ever WTA ranking achieved by a Romanian, and also claimed titles in Doha and Bucharest.
