World No. 23 Grigor Dimitrov says he feels like he’s finally being recognized more for his own accomplishments than just being called a younger version of Roger Federer.

“[People say] ‘Wow, this is Grigor, he is now,’” the Bulgarian told World Tennis magazine. “That’s what I wanna hear! I think there have been enough comparisons with Federer and all the rest. I mean, I do not think I should be compared to him because he is the greatest of all time and I’m not even close. I still have a long way to go.”
