Weird stuff at the French Open
Grigor Dimitrov has always disliked the nickname that was given to him at the beginning of his career when he was called “Baby Federer.”
In fact, even if at the very beginning that nickname was flattering, after a while it became a bit too “heavy” to carry. In addition, Grigor also wanted to “preserve” his identity.
What happened in Paris
The Bulgarian sensation was playing a rather intense match against Stan Wawrinka while at a certain point a fan shouted: “Come on Baby Federer.” Grigor was visibly upset for being interrupted as he was about to serve to also reply: “Do I look like a baby to you?”
That went under his skin.
“Do I look like a baby to you?”
