Roger Federer strolls into third round of Australian Open with dominant showing against Filip Krajinovic


Roger Federer performs his second-round match at Melbourne Park right this moment and, in line with his line of pondering, the primary few matches he performs in a Grand Slam event are as necessary as those on the fortnight finish.

The 20-time grand slam singles champion will play Filip Krajinovic, who may have little relaxation forward of the match. He received a troublesome five-setter that completed late Tuesday afternoon in a match postponed from Monday.
In the meantime, seven-time champion Novak Djokovic prevented the identical mistake he made three years go when he met a wild-card entry within the second spherical in Melbourne.
Djokovic beat Tatsuma Ito 6-1, 6-4, 6-2 in a swirling breeze on Rod Laver Enviornment to advance to a third-round match in opposition to one other Japanese participant, Yoshihito Nishioka, who defeated Thirtieth-seeded and British No 1 Dan Evans.
In 2017, Djokovic was upset within the second spherical by Denis Istomin who, like Ito, had earned his spot in the primary draw by successful the Asia-Pacific wild-card playoff. That was Djokovic’s worst efficiency in Australia since a first-round exit in 2006.
