Federer Starts Strong in Miami

Despite the close scoreline, Roger Federer advanced to the third round of the 2014 Sony Open with a routine 6-4 7-6 (4) victory over big serving Ivo Karlovic Friday afternoon in Miami. The Swiss maestro dominated with his serve, losing just three points the entire match. He won 37 of 39 points on his first serve, while winning 12 of 13 points on his second serve.

Slightly odd, the two time champion in Miami won the toss and chose to receive, against one of the biggest servers on the tour. The decision paid off, as he would break in the opening game, the only break for either player in the match. Federer fired 6 aces to hold his own against 13 from Karlovic, along with 27 winners to only 6 unforced errors. He was 8 of 8 at net.

After 1 hour 14 minutes, the Swiss secured his place in Sunday’s third round, where he will face Thiemo De Bakker, who upset Fernando Verdasco in three sets.
