Federer put on a masterclass against Croatian Marin Cilic, who broke down in tears while being crushed by the 35-year-old Swiss in straight sets, with the 6-3, 6-1, 6-4 result sealed in less than two hours.

The first set went with serve early on, until Federer was able to snatch the decisive break in the fifth game, eventually going on to take the set 6-3.

However, clearly affected, and was blown away 6-1 in less than half an hour by the great champion and again required the trainer to further re-examine his foot.
