Using his powerful serve and surprising lateral quickness for a player his age, the tournament's No. 2 seed dominated his opponent and sent a message to the rest of the field that he is still one of the top contenders for the Grand Slam title.
As great as he played Tuesday at Roland Garros, an incredibly tough field is still standing between Federer and his second French Open victory in his 15th appearance.
The domination from Federer thus far at Roland Garros is reminiscent of the success the veteran had during the prime of his career, but he will have to show he can carry that over against legitimate competition.
The 2013 French Open field is deep—Rafael Nadal is back, Novak Djokovic is playing well and the rest of the men’s draw is looking to make a name for themselves—but with the confidence gained in the first two rounds, Federer is ready for a deep run.
Federer will next play Julien Benneteau, who beat Tobias Kamke in five sets.
