Federer through 1st Wimbledon Match in Imperious form!

Defending champion Roger Federer beats Victor Hanescu in three straight sets 6-3, 6-2, 6-0

“I don’t think any one here feels short changed. 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.”  “[Roger] Federer is giving his opponent so few opportunities in this match. He’s certainly not complacent, he’s blessed to do what he does but he still has enormous hunger and motivation and that’s a true credit to him as a tennis player. He still has the desire for more. When you talk about the first day it’s not always easy. Coming out as the defending champion there would have been some nerves and some expectation behind Roger [Federer] today. Realistically though grass is probably his only chance of winning a Grand Slam now.” Tim Henman, BBC Sport
