Although it was Roger Federer and Grigor Dimitrov whom fans came to see at the BNP Paribas Showdown, it was a young boy who ended up being the star of the night.

During Tuesday night's exhibition at Madison Square Garden, Dimitrov stepped aside and let a youngster face Federer for a chance to show what he could do.

Federer and the young tennis player engaged in a playful rally, which ended with a beautiful lob by the kid. As good as Federer is, he had no defense for that shot.
