Default Gasquet or Dimitrov: Who is the better Baby Fed?

Like the title says Gagsquet or Dimitrova who is the better baby Fed?
When both came up the tennis media drew similarities between both and tennis great Roger Federer. Neither of them have lived up to the hype (and neither will, Gagsquet is an epic failure and Dimitrova passed his peak this year) but who most closely appropriated the title of baby Fed?

Apologies if this has already been discussed. I post like 5 times a year.

They're pretty close. Both vastly over-rated by I think Gasquet could've done some more, he had some great matches even if they were only a few.

Default Re: Gasquet or Dimitrov: Who is the better Baby Fed?

Gasquet cant be baby fed, he is barely 4 years 10 months younger, hardly a whole generation apart. Dimitrov is 9 years 9 months younger than fed. Gasquet is even closer to fed Age than Dimitrov is to Gasquet , more so if we consider about the time all of them became relevant to the ATP tour., gasquet was an early bloomer compared to both dimitrov and federer.

Federer is in the top 100 since 1999

Gasquet is in the top 100 since 2003.

Dimitrov is in the top 100 since 2011

There is a master and an apprentice.

There is the past and the future.

There is the GOAT and the DimiGOAT.

Hopefully I answered your question.

Default Re: Gasquet or Dimitrov: Who is the better Baby Fed?

Gasquet was overrated/overhyped and Dimitrov is overrated/overhyped. Dimitrov doesn't have a weapon comparable to Roger's forehand in his prime and is very passive nowadays while Roger has always been aggressive. The only thing Dimitrov and Federer have in common is they've both nailed women with 5 letter names that start with an M. Comparing them to Federer is a huge insult to Roger. You need at least one slam to be Baby Fed

Neither is likely to win anything above ATP 500 level, unless the field severely diminishes.

Default Re: Gasquet or Dimitrov: Who is the better Baby Fed?

Gasquet is nothing like Federer. He has a totally different game and technique. Weak forehand and big backhand. Stays behind the baseline most of the time and goes into CC rallies. This is essentially the opposite of Federer's game. The only thing they have in common is the Single handed backhand.

Dimitrov is overhyped, but he is talented and does have similarities to Federer. Similar technique and elegant game. He doesn't have Federer's forehand, which was such a huge weapon Fed had. Still the Baby Fed tag for him is understandable.

Dimitrov forehand is still much stronger than his backhand though. Kinda of similar to Fed, I agree.

Default Re: Gasquet or Dimitrov: Who is the better Baby Fed?

Gasquet always had a joke FH. Backhands are not that familiar either. Dimitrov is the more accurate copy. I think Dimitrov will achieve more, mainly due to playing in a weaker era.

Have you missed the "Dimitrov turning to Fed" threads? He is turning to Fed to a degree, although not in the game sense. Funny trivia you said about both players having a female beau, that starts with the letter M and has 5 letters. I agree that Dimitrov seems to be more defensive than Fed lately with some "hot shots" here or there.
