Roger Federer books his spot in the second round of Wimbledon courtesy of a 6-1 6-3 6-4 victory over Dusan Lajovic.

Roger Federer booked his spot in the second round of Wimbledon courtesy of a 6-1 6-3 6-4 victory over Serbian Dusan Lajovic on Monday afternoon.

The defending champion needed just 22 minutes to claim the opening set 6-1, with Lajovic losing three consecutive service games as he struggled to deal with the Swiss in the English capital.

Lajovic only lost one service game in the second set, but it was another uphill struggle to deal with the Federer serve, and the world number two hardly broke sweat as he moved two sets ahead.

The third and what proved to be final set also started in the worst possible fashion for Lajovic as he was broken immediately, and Federer then held his next five service games to ease his way into the second round of the competition.

The first-round match lasted just one hour and 21 minutes, with eight-time Wimbledon champion Federer hardly needing to move out of first gear.
