What if Roger Federer had finally launched his US Open? This is likely after his capital performance against Daniel Evans where he missed nothing or almost. Author of 10 aces, 80% points won behind his first ball and 70% behind his second, the Swiss left no ounce of luck to his opponent of the day. Much cooler than his first two rounds against Nagal and Dzumhur where he had won in four sets, the world number 3 also appeared much more relaxed. Playing at 12 pm New York time may also have been important when you know the humidity when it gets dark. With lighter balls and more lively, Federer was able to start his meeting in the best conditions as Evans had had no day off after his victory over Lucas Pouille yesterday (Thursday). In the round of 16, he will find the winner of the match between the Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta and the Belgian Dvaid Goffin. A match that could serve as the first real test to the five-time winner of the tournament.
