Federer advances at Roland Garros

In typical fashion, Roger Federer recorded a routine straight sets win his first round match vs Tobias Kamke to advance to the second round at Roland Garros. The Swiss never looked in trouble although he struggled a little bit on his serve, broken twice (once while serving for the match). He fired 7 aces and hit 38 winners in the match, taking 1 hour 57 minutes. Adding to that were also an uncharacteristic 5 double faults and 47 unforced errors.

Federer improves to 32-4 in 2012, and continues his good form since the 2011 US Open (49-4, 7 titles). Further, the Swiss maestro is competing in his 50th grand slam tournament, and with today’s win, he recorded his 50th match win at Roland Garros (50-12). He has now equaled the all time record of (233 grand slam victories) of Jimmy Connors. Federer is now 233-35 lifetime at the grand slams.
