Roger Federer beats Yoshihito Nishioka at US Open to reach second round

Classy Federer sets up mouth-watering Kyrgios clash

The 37-year-old hit 56 winners as he put on another show in Arthur Ashe Stadium, easing to a 6-2 6-2 6-4 victory.

Roger Federer says his favorite drinks are cold water and a sparkling glass of champagne.

Meanwhile, Fourth seed Alexander Zverev beat a second lucky loser, overcoming Nicolas Mahut 6-4 6-4 6-2 to reach the third round as he bids for his first grand slam title. But he said that the US Open was a, "bigger priority" this year.

The Serb, who beat Sandgren in straight sets at Wimbledon this year, will hope for a more coherent performance out of the blistering daylight heat.

Nishioka rallied briefly at the end, denying Federer the chance to serve out the set and battling back to 5-4 with his first break of serve. But, no, never gets old. But the tests were about to get much harder, not least in his second-round opponent Benoit Paire, the kind of unorthodox player who can turn on the flair and power to great effect-as he did in Halle, where he gave Federer an almighty scare in the second round, failed to convert two match points, and eventually lost a final-set tie-break.

Allegri defends Cristiano: "In Italy no one scores 40 goals a season"
Ronaldo, 33, has yet to score for his new club after arriving this summer from Real Madrid in a €100 million move. Let's just say that the teams are very strong in defence and the coaches are very good.

"It was a tough one", the world No. assured.

"I'm very happy with how I played tonight".

So could the Swiss maintain his unbeaten record over unseeded men here, and his unbeaten record in Round-2 matches?

Sixth seed Caroline Garcia, who looked in good form in beating Briton Johanna Konta in the first round, is up against Olympic champion Monica Puig on Grandstand, followed by men's seventh seed Marin Cilic, the 2014 champion, who meets Poland's Hubert Hurkacz.

The third set too saw the same outcome as Federer's stronghold over the match continued to grow-this time with a 4-0 lead after he bagged a double break.

Wozniacki was the runner-up at Flushing Meadows in 2009 and 2014.

"Obviously I felt better, especially after that 10-minute break".

Several players requested medical attention due to the heat during their matches on Monday while some on the women's side opted to take advantage of the 10-minute heat break.

The Swiss took 35 minutes to close out the second set and, with Nishioka firmly on the ropes, started the third by racing to a 4-0 lead before his Japanese opponent held serve. If both decline, play continues.

Former world No. 1 Novak Djokovic will be back on Arthur Ashe in prime time, facing American Tennys Sandgren. She faces Cîrstea, who was nearly beaten by American Alison Riske, before making a comeback to beat Riske 7-5 in the decider.

Tropical Storm Norman forecast to reach hurricane strength today
Hawaii was spared a direct hit from a major hurricane as Lane diminished to a tropical storm as it approached the islands . It was located 1,230 miles (1,980 miles) east-southeast of Hilo, Hawaii and was moving west at 13 mph (20 kph).

Its been ten years now for Federer now when he had last lifted the trophy at Flushing Meadows.
