Federer gets into the round of 16 at the US Open without breaking a sweat

The Swiss Roger Federer, number three in the world, advanced to the eighth of the US Open after beating the British Daniel Evans, who did not resist.

Federer, winner of 20 Grand Slam, including five in the United States, sentenced the match with a double 6-2, 6-1 in 1 hour and 20 minutes.

In the next round he will face the winner of the match between Pablo Carreño-Busta and the Belgian Davud Goffin (15), who also meet on Friday.

The first two games for the Swiss started with a set down, forcing him to make adjustments on-site to win. He said Wednesday that it was “frustrating” how many mistakes he had made.

“Sometimes you have to trust your team, your warm-ups, Dani was not feeling well. I played good tennis, I really enjoyed the game, “said the former number one after the game.

The game against Evans opened it with an ace, the first of 10, and from there he set the rhythm of the duel, cutting deep rallies with a dead ball at the net and moving the ball from one side to the other, without the British, 58 ATP, could figure out the next play.

Federer finished with 48 winning points compared to just 7 of the rival, and 19 unforced errors, against 14, who came to save twice a double break point in the first and second sets, relying on a powerful serve of almost 200 km / h. .
