Somdev Devvarman v Roger Federer Live
Second seeded mens singles player Roger Federer will be gunning for his second French Open title but in his way will be Indias Somdev Devvarman in their second round encounter.
In what has been Rafael Nadal’s easy Grand Slam title collection, Federer has managed to win the French Open once before but it looks highly unlikely he will be able to add to his collection in the presence of the Spaniard.
Federer did not break into too much of a sweat going into the second round after dropping only seven games in his opening round match. He defeated world number 169 Pablo Carreno to make it through to this stage of the competition.
His opponent and India’s Devvarman is also a qualifier and has now managed to win four matches in a row to get this far. In his first round match against Daniel Munoz-De La Nava, he was barely stretched, winning the encounter 6-3, 6-3, 7-5 to make it through to the second round.
Unfortunately for the world number 188, now will be his true test as he takes on the second seeded Federer, against whom he’s played only once before this. It was a first round match at Dubai in 2011 and Federer ran home an easy winner over the Indian. Can he avenge that loss?
