Paris: World No.3 Roger Federer of Switzerland made short work of India’s tennis star Somdev Devvarman defeating him 6-2, 6-1, 6-1 in the men’s singles second round of Roland Garros here on Wednesday.
Playing on court Suzanne Lenglen, the second seed won in one hour and 22 minutes to extend his career head-to-head to 2-0 against Devvarman, who delivered his best performance on the red clay of Paris by reaching the second round.
The 17-time Grand Slam champion Federer proved too good for the World No.188 Devvarman, who got three chances to break his opponent in the first two sets but failed each time.
The Swiss completely dominated the match, not even allowing Devvarman to take a single game off his serve.
The last time the former champion beat the Indian was in 2011 at Dubai.
Federer will next play French 30th seed Julien Benneteau, who defeated Tobias Kamke of Germany 7-6(9), 7-5, 5-7, 0-6, 6-4, in the third round.
