Champion Roger Federer hammered out a warning to his rivals for the U.S. Open title. He beat Czech Ivo Minar 6-1, 6-1, 6-1 to reach the second round at the Flushing Meadows in New York on Tuesday.
The world number one and top seed needed just over an hour to clinch victory and set up a meeting with either Frenchman Fabrice Santoro or Juergen Melzer of Austria.
Minar, the world number 77, was given no chance to settle on his first U.S. Open appearance. Federer rattled through the first two sets in 36 minutes.
