Wimbledon, England (Sports Network) - Roger Federer cruised into round three
at Wimbledon with a dominating victory over Italian Fabio Fognini Wednesday.
The third-seeded Federer, a six-time Wimbledon champion, gained a 6-1, 6-3,
6-2 victory on Centre Court. The super Swiss fired 13 aces and needed 1 hour,
14 minutes to swiftly advance to the next round, where he will meet either
29th-seeded Frenchman Julien Benneteau or American Michael Russell.
Federer also kept up his incredible second-round streak, having never lost in
that round at a Grand Slam. The last time he failed to reach the third round
at a major when he fell in the opening round at the 2003 French Open.
The 30-year-old Federer is in a bid to tie William Renshaw and Pete Sampras'
record of seven Wimbledon titles, but his last major championship came in 2010
at the Australian Open.
