How close is Dimitrov compared to Federer in stroke mechanics

They say imitation is the best form of flattery.

With this wonderful video and great superimposition of both players it  clearly demonstrates uncanny similarities between both.

It could be Dimitrov totally based his game on Federer.. or they are just equally talented

However when slowed down the video does show subtle differences and that also explains why Federer still look a tad more fluid in live action

1. Lag time in Dimitrov serve when approaching upswing 
2. Lag time in Dimitrov forehand when approaching upsing
