Roger Federer and Tomas Berdych went untested in the second round as the top men's seed advanced in the top quarter of the draw.
It was smooth sailing for world No. 1 Roger Federer, as the Swiss downed Bjorn Phau in routine straight sets to advance to the third round at the US Open. Federer played near flawless tennis for the 6-2, 6-3, 6-2 win.
The world No. 1 struck 44 winners to just 18 unforced errors, and faced just one break point for the match, which he fought off. Phau, the German ranked 83rd in the world, was never really a factor in the match. Federer was at his ease from the baseline and he swung freely on his serve, hitting 15 aces for the match. He will take on Spaniard Fernando Verdasco in the third round.
Also advancing on Thursday was Tomas Berdych, the 6th seeded player from the Czech Republic. He easily defeated Jurgen Zopp 6-1, 6-4, 6-2 to move into the third round. Berdych will battle in-form American Sam Querrey.
