Roger Federer wasted no time in reaching the third round at Wimbledon, beating Adrian Mannarino of France 6-2, 6-3, 6-2 on Thursday.

The players were kept waiting in the locker room by the two preceding matches on Centre Court that both went the distance, but a dominant display by Federer ensured it wouldn't be a late-night finish under the roof.

The six-time champion broke five times to win in only 1 hour, 28 minutes, finishing off the match with an athletic smash.

Federer will meet 2002 Wimbledon finalist David Nalbandian in the third round.
