The Swiss struggled to win the Serbian Dusan Lajovic 7-6 (0), 6-3 and 6-2 in an hour and a half .They have already faced the German twice and in Halle suffered.
Roger Federer had not had enough time to pick up the pace (yes, he added varis records) on Tuesday when his rival Alexander Dolgopolov retired with a right ankle injury in the 43rd minute. This Thursday he has played the full match against Dusan Lajovic, but only 47 more have been drilled to win the Serbian by 7-6 (0), 6-3 and 6-2. That yes, the fans could enjoy it, although not yet in its best version.
The Basel Genie started at idle, with a 0-2 against which he recovered without problems, although he had to manage the win in the first set in a sudden death where he thrashed Lajovic. So far came the intention of the 27-year-old Balkan and No. 79 in the world, who had yet to meet the great Roger. He was then outclassed by the class and solvency of the seven-time Wimbledon champion, who finished his hairstyle intact with nine straight saves, 31 winning strokes and 81% points earned with the first serve and second. Incontestable. But the worst, or the best, is that it can still do better.
In the third round awaits a brave player who is doing well on grass, Mischa Zverev, who beat Kazakh Kukushkin 6-1, 6-2, 2-6, 3-6 and 6-4. The German is one of those brave men who still does a lot of shooting and netting on this surface. He has already faced Federer twice this year. In Australia, he passed by on all sides, but in Halle, Roger suffered to beat him by 7-6 (4) and 6-4.
