LONDON (Reuters) - Swiss great Roger Federer and world No 2 Daniil Medvedev of Russia both advanced into the men’s singles third round at Wimbledon in straight sets on Thursday.
Federer, 39, needed to win a tiebreak to take the opening set against France’s Richard Gasquet, but made his way easier later by winning the following two sets 6-1, 6-4.
The eight-time Wimbledon champion came to this year’s tournament as the sixth seed. He was forced to play a deciding set in his first round match on Tuesday, but ended up winning without playing to the end, as opponent Adrian Mannarino from France injured his knee after a slip.
The 20-time Grand Slam winner said he played much better on Thursday and ranked his performance in the top three since his return in 2021.
