That was a very calm and masterful start to Roger Federer's campaign to lift his 6th title at Basel.

In fact the whole match had a relaxed atmosphere about it, at one time both players smiling as Roger chatted with the chair umpire about a confusing line call.

Wearing headphones it was clear to hear Roger's emphatic stamp of his foot when he ran across court to chip a volley back over the net.

A good start, let's hope he can build upon this in the rounds to come. :)
