Roger Federer recorded his career's 1022nd match win, 282nd win at a major & 62nd win at Roland Garros as he eased past Alejandro Fella 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 to reach the 2nd round of French Open, 2015 in 1 hour & 50 minutes.

This is the 14th time in the last 17 years when Roger Federer has reached Round-2 at Roland Garros.

 

Roland Garros is Federer's 62nd successive major (overall 64th major), only Fabrice Santoro (70 slams) has played more grand slams than the 33 year old Roger Federer.

 

 

As I tweeted before the start of the match, Alejandro Fella, Feliciano Lopez and Wayne Arthur are the only left handed guys, other than Rafa Nadal to have won a set against Roger Federer at a major.

 

 

 

1st Set

 

 

Federer broke Falla's service in the 8th game and that one break of service was enough as Federer clinched the 1st set 6-3.

 

 

Here are the 1st set stats ----

2nd Set

 

 

Federer had 8 break points in the 2nd set, but managed to break only twice. But, during this set there were two records worth mentioning.

 

 

 

 

 

Here are the 2nd set stats ----

 3rd Set

 

Federer broke the Colombian's service in the 9th game and then served out the match in the 10th game.

 

 Here are the overall match stats ----

After the match, a fan jumped on to the court to take a selfie with him. This was the 3rd such breach of security at Roland Garros (after Roland Garros 2009 & Roland Garros 2013 finale)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here's the video -----

 

 

 

 

Federer's 2nd round opponent will be Marcel Granollers & the match will be on Wednesday. Federer leads the head to head 3-0.

Well that was a comfortable and pretty straightforward match for Roger Federer and always good to see a straight sets win at the beginning of a Grand Slam.

Apparently he is one of a few players who does not mind playing on the first Sunday and as the comms pointed out, has given him the opportunity to really get the feel of the court and the balls under match conditions and with a 2 day break before his next match on Wednesday he has the time to work on what he feels he needs to in practice sessions. In fact there has been some debate about the tennis balls here in Paris, which are a different brand and don't bounce quite as much as the ones the players have been used to so far in the clay season.

After the match a young fan ran onto the court and tried to take a selfie with Roger. Security took their time to react. In fact, why is this still allowed to happen at Roland Garros!!

Here's a short video of the incident ....




Remember these too?

In 2009, when a man rushed onto the court and tried to put a hat on Roger during the Final vs Robin Soderling ....

And in 2013 when a protester carrying a flare leaped onto the court during Rafael Nadal's match vs David Ferrer ....

To be honest I would have thought that a far more effective barrier would have been created to stop this happening by now. It is fortunate that these people did not have malevolent intent towards the players!

Anyone who says Roger Federer isn't up to it any more should look at this photo! Talk about a finely tuned body, every muscle group in his legs clearly defined. That takes a lot of dedicated hard work!
