Roger Federer was in top form as he dominated Somdev Devvarman 6-2 6-1 6-1 in second round of French Open.
The number two seed finished off his opponent in 90 minutes, and seemingly wanted to display his excellent game with a barrage of winners.
Federer broke the Indian’s service in the very first game which dictated the pace. Despite errors from the Swiss star, Devvarman could not muster any momentum, managing only four winners.
In the second set, Federer’s forehand proved to be an excellent tool to dismantle his rival, highlighted by two service breaks to edge him to victory.
The third set was more of the same as Federer poured the pressure and went up 5-0. Devvarman avoided a bagel, but the 31-year-old clinically finished the match with his service game to move on to the third round against Julien Benneteau.
“It’s great that all the work is paying off and I hope to keep experiencing this as long as possible,” said Federer.
“Next up it’s Benneteau, a good friend. We have met a few times – he beat me at Rotterdam earlier this year.
“I’m happy that I was playing offensive and aggressive tennis in the first two matches. I didn’t back off and start to play passive tennis and wait for mistakes. I took it to my opponent.”
