Grigor Dimitrov hit back at a fan calling him ‘Baby Federer’ during his third round match against Stan Wawrinka at French Open on Friday.

The Bulgarian star has always showed displeasure at being called by the moniker that is an outcome of his Federer-like style of playing.

And the case was the same after one fan yelled ‘Come on, Baby Federer”. No wonder, Dimitrov wasn’t taking it as he snapped, saying: “Do I look like a baby to you.”

The incident didn’t help him much as he went down to 24th seed Wawrinka in three tie-breakers.

“I think the comparisons and all this, they don’t really matter any more,” Dimitrov had said a couple of years back.

“As I said before, I’m saying it now, I’m really looking after my game and what I’m doing right.

“I think one of the wrong things you can do is to try to follow somebody else or try to, as I said, follow in the footsteps, the things that they have done.”

Wawrinka is scheduled to face 6th seed Stefanos Tsitsipas for a place in the quarter-finals.
