Roger Federer moved to second round of French Open after beating Pablo Carreno-Busta 6-2 6-2 6-3.

For the most part, the former number one never seemed to be in any danger in the match.

Although many tout Carreno-Busta as a future great, with the 21-year-old winning seven consecutive Futures tournaments this year, he did little to test Federer.

Except for a single break of service in the first set, he never got anything going as Federer was clearly the more superior athlete on the court.

In just over 80 minutes, the 31-year-old finished off his opponent with his trademark backhand.

“I didn’t know a great deal about my opponent. He played really well and has a great future,” claimed Federer, who had 10 aces in the match.

He is now set to face Indian Somdev Devvarman in the second round.
