Grigor Dimitrov tells CNN that he is tired of being called “Baby Federer.”

“You know, all the comparisons, I think that I definitely want people to stop with that,” the 29th-ranked Bulgarian said. “Of course we have some similarities here and there. I’m flattered with that and actually, I thought it was really cool at the beginning. But with time, I’ve realized what I am. It’s something that is definitely not what the other person is, so I’m trying to build up my own style and when I’m on court, I do my own shots. I think that’s eventually what everyone will see.”
