Diego Sebastian Schwartzman v Roger Federer Live
Roger Federer is primed to breeze into round 3 of the French Open at Roland Garros in Paris in the same manner in which he dispatched Lukas Lacko on the opening day of the grand slam tennis event.
The Swiss maestro stormed into the second round courtesy of a 6-2, 6-4, 6-2 win over Lacko. Federer clearly looked like a man in a hurry as he spent as little time as possible on court before returning to tend to his twins on Sunday.
Roger Federer took 16 out of a possible 20 points at the net and claimed five out of 11 break points which is an extremely encouraging sign for someone who has 17 grand slam titles to his name.
With wife Mirka and his twin daughters watching from the sidelines, Federer eased through the gears at the Philippe Chartrier show court at the Roland Garros before he showed some classy moves to oust the shaggy haired Lacko in the first round of what promises to be a great tournament.
Federer had been a shadow of himself in the past year and 2013 was certainly a year to forget. He seemed apprehensive about the past and looked nervy in the opening exchanges. However, like a true champion, Federer was able to battle his demons and finish as the winner on Sunday.
