Roger Federer receives high praise from Tim Henman for his display in the first round of Wimbledon.

Former Great Britain number one Tim Henman has praised Roger Federer for the performance that he put in during his opening round match of Wimbledon earlier today.

The defending champion took just 68 minutes to see off Romania's Victor Hanescu 6-3 6-2 6-0.

"I don't think any one here feels short changed," said Henman, who is working for BBC Sport. "It was an exhibition performance from Federer.

"His serving was so sound and he gave Hanescu no opportunities whatsoever. He's hardly broken sweat he could fold that shirt up and re-use it."

Federer is aiming to become the first man to win the singles title on eight different occasions.
