Roger Federer got off to a slow start, combined with an aggressive start from his opponent Simone Bolelli. The Wednesday day session match on Rod Laver Arena saw the Italian jump out to take the first set against the Swiss maestro, playing inspired tennis. However the 33-year-old Swiss found a way to maneuver through, tilting the match in his favor midway in the second set. Making the necessary adjustments, the 4-time Australian Open champion was dialed in and took command, breaking in the opening game of both the third and fourth sets.
