Federer surges into Wimbledon second round

The Grandstand

Roger Federer cruised through his opening match at Wimbledon on Tuesday, destroying Damir Dzumhur 6-1, 6-3, 6-3 in a mere one hour and seven minutes. Federer struck six aces without double-faulting, did not face a single break point, and finished with 26 winners compared to only 12 unforced errors.

“[Playing on Centre Court] is exciting,” the 33-year-old Swiss assured, even though it might as well be his home away from home. “It’s a privilege to be there. I was trying to think how many times I’ve played there now. I don’t know. I know it’s been often. Still, every time it feels like it’s a special occasion, for sure.”


Federer can expect to be back there on Thursday against Sam Querrey. Should he take care of business against Nottingham runner-up Sam Querrey, the seven-time champion at the All-England Club would await the winner of a particularly interesting second-round showdown.
