Roger Federer overcame some feisty second set resistance from Alexandr Dolgopolov before he ran away with the match 6-3, 7-5, 6-1 courtesy of a superb service game and aggressive groundstrokes in the final set in the second round of the Australian Open.

He will play Bulgaria’s Grigor Dimitrov in the third round on Friday and the third seed was so far enjoying his quest for his fifth Australian Open title.

It’s been going very well for me, and I hope to keep it up as long as I choose to play tennis. The least I expect (is) to be in the third round of a slam, so I’m pumped up, playing well, feeling good.
