Roger Federer defeats Benoit Paire to secure the place in R3

Roger Federer of Switzerland reacts after defeating Yoshihito Nishioka of Japan (not pictured) in a first round match on day two of the 2018 U.S. Open tennis tournament at USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.

Federer, the second seed, broke the Japanese lefthander in the opening game of the one-sided encounter and never looked back, rattling through his service games with a minimum of fuss to wrap up the first set in 28 minutes.

Both players had more unforced errors than winners (27-39 for Roger and 25-47 for Benoit) but the Swiss tamed his shots in a more proper way, also keeping the second serve under control to bring the match home in straight sets. "It's nearly time to retire, but not yet", the 37-year-old said with a smile, adding that the conditions had been tough.

Federer saved the first eight break points he faced before finally faltering by pushing a forehand long on the ninth, losing serve for the only time while trying to close out the match at 5-2 in the third set.
