Unstoppable Federer rustles in round 3

Roger Federer is in the third round of the Australian Open after a sovereign victory over Filip Krajinovic. With 6: 1, 6: 4, 6: 1, the Swiss makes perfect progress after just one and a half hours. This means that the 38-year-old has moved into the third round at least 21 times at his 21 Australian Open.

Flawless first sentence

Filip Krajinovic could be sorry for you that evening. It took the Serb a good 15 minutes before he had reached the first set mentally and playfully. At this point, Roger Federer had left his opponent miles behind with 5: 0. Two breaks for the Swiss, who once again understood perfectly how to make the crucial points at the right moment. Nothing to get for Krajinovic, who seemed increasingly perplexed. It only took twenty minutes and the first set went absolutely deserved 6: 1 to Federer.

Federer keeps Krajinovic at bay

The game continued in the second set. The world's number 3 continued to play flawlessly while Filip Krajinovic was desperately looking for ground under his feet. The Serb found it for the first time when he made the game 2: 3 after a 15:40. But there he was again a break behind. Nevertheless, you could see some hope shimmering in number 41 of the world. It even manifested itself to the point that Krajinovic suddenly got a break at Federer's serve. The 38-year-old Swiss fended off the first, but then Filip Krajinovic struck the fourth breakball - 4: 4. Would a one-way street match develop into an eye-to-eye match? No, because as soon as Krajinovic brought the break back, he had already received a new one. Roger Federer then used this confidently to get ahead with 6: 4 and two sets.

Warned by the brief rearing up of his opponent, Federer picked up his pace in the third set. Once again, the six-time Australian Open winner secured a break at the start. Krajinovic continued to heroically try to stay in the match somehow, but was unable to stop or reduce his defeat. Two more breaks and the fate of the Serb was sealed.
