Roger Federer hands out more punishment to Mikhail Youzhny

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Roger Federer eased to a 16th consecutive victory over Russia`s Mikhail Youzhny to begin his quest for a seventh title at the Dubai Championships on Monday.

The Swiss world number two looked revitalised during a 6-3 6-1 stroll — his first competitive match since a surprise third round defeat by Andreas Seppi at the Australian Open.

Only two head-to-head winning streaks are longer than Federer`s over Youzhny — Ivan Lendl`s against Tim Mayotte (17) and Rafa Nadal`s recently broken one against Tomas Berdych (18) — and Youzhny looked resigned to his fate.
Federer banged down eight aces during a 56-minute exhibition and will face the winner of an all-Spanish clash between Fernando Verdasco and Guillermo Garcia-Lopez in round two.

Joining the 33-year-old in the second round of the high-profile event was Denis Istomin who removed struggling fifth seed Ernests Gulbis 7-5 6-2.
