Federer Rolls into U.S. Open's Second Round

By  | 

NEW YORK (AP) - Roger Federer had no trouble in the second round of a Grand Slam tournament this time.

The 17-time major champion beat Carlos Berlocq 6-3, 6-2, 6-1 in 95 minutes Thursday at the U.S. Open. It was in the second round that the Swiss great was shocked by Sergiy Stakhovsky at Wimbledon.

The 48th-ranked Berlocq has never made it past the second round at a Grand Slam event and is 0-17 against top-10 opponents.

Federer is seeded seventh at Flushing Meadows, his worst since 2002. But he hasn't dropped a set through two victories.
