Former world number one cruises through his second round match in New York.
Roger Federer needed only 95 minutes to book his place in the US Open third round after a straight sets win against Carlos Berlocq.
Coming into the tournament ranked as just the seventh seed, the lowest mark for the former champion since 2002, Federer made sure his opponent continued his record of never having made it past the second round at a major, as he record against top 10 opponents fell to be 0-17.
“It’s one of those matches I expect myself to win if possible in straight sets and gain confidence in the process,” Federer said.
“All those things happened, so, yeah, I’m pleased about it.”
The Swiss master will now face France’s Adrian Mannarino in the third round, after he dispatched of 26th seed American Sam Querrey 7-6 (7-4), 7-6 (7-5), 6-7 (5-7), 6-4.
