Federer flies into third round

Roger Federer blasted aside Italian wild card Potito Starace 6-1, 6-2 in just 51 minutes at the Internazionali BNL d’Italia, Rome.

Federer was on top of his game right from the start of the encounter, as he hit an incredible 35 winners and only made eight unforced errors. Against Starace, however, Federer never struggled, with the Foro Italico crowd's support for the local favorite proving useless.

''I feel the way I want to feel,'' Federer said. ''I'm happy that from start to finish I was able to control the outcome of the match.''

Next up will either be Gilles Simon (ATP 17) or Michail Juschni (ATP 30).
