I am tired of Roger Federer comparisons, says Grigor Dimitrov

Grigor Dimitrov was dubbed ‘Baby Fed’ – especially during the early days of his career – for his Roger Federer-like style of play.

However, the Bulgarian tennis star has said he is fed up of the comparisons as he aims to carve his own path to the zenith of the sport.

“I am tired about this topic; I am tired of comparisons. This is part of the past,” Dimitrov was quoted as saying by Express.co.uk.

And Dimitrov has a reason to say that. Having risen to No. 4 in the ATP rankings, he’s probably at the peak of his career.

From here on, he is looking to strengthen the image of his own as he aspires to keep learning by practicing with some of the best in the business like world No. 1 Rafael Nadal.

“I love practising against him, I love playing matches,” Dimitrov said of Nadal. “I think it’s great to have a reference like that to improve yourself.

“He pushes you to do better. You have to give 100 per cent.”

Meanwhile, Dimitrov is currently competing at the Madrid Masters, where is slated to face Canada’s Milos Raonic in the second round on Tuesday.
