Roger Federer Cruises into Wimbledon Fourth Round


(June 28, 2014) WIMBLEDON – Seven-time champion Roger Federer has moved into the fourth round with an authoritative win over No. 35 Santiago Giraldo of Colombia 6-3, 6-1, 6-3 on Saturday under a closed roof on Centre Court at Wimbledon.

Last year Federer lost in the second round of the tournament. The winner of 17 Grand Slam titles hit 27 winners with 8 aces. He won 94 points in the match to his opponent’s 64. He was 5 for 9 in break point chances.

“It’s been a good first week for me,” Federer said.  “I’ve been playing well, been feeling good.  Didn’t drop any sets.  Wasn’t really in danger in any of the matches.

“Totally got a lot of info, you know, from the first week, how I need to play moving forward”

Federer’s last Wimbledon title came in 2012.

He will play Tommy Robredo in the fourth round for a place in the quarterfinals. Robredo defeated  15th seed Jerzy Janowicz in five sets late on Saturday.
