Federer cruises in Montreal

Published by , Wednesday 08/09/17 19:49

Roger Federer got his US Open preparations off to an imperious start at the ATP Montreal Masters, dismantling Canada's Peter Polansky in straight sets to advance to the third round. The Swiss star, who celebrated his 36th birthday on Tuesday, overwhelmed his world number 116-ranked opponent to win 6-2, 6-1 in 53 minutes. Federer is riding high after a spectacular year which has netted him both the Australian Open and Wimbledon crowns. On Wednesday's evidence few would bet against him adding the US Open to that haul after a masterful performance that left Polansky groping at shadows throughout. Federer took control immediately against Polansky, holding his opening service game comfortably before quickly going 0-40 up in the second game.
