Roger Federer easily reaches
US Open's 4th round

Quick as can be, Roger Federer moved into the fourth round at the U.S. Open for the 13th year in a row with a 6-3, 6-0, 6-2 victory over Adrian Mannarino on Saturday.

Finishing points with early winners from all angles, 17-time Grand Slam champion Federer raced past the Frenchman in only one hour and 21 minutes.

Federer compiled a 34-8 edge in winners.

Through three matches, Federer has spent 4½ hours on court, dropping a total of only 21 games.

Federer, who won five consecutive U.S. Opens from 2004-08, next plays 19th-seeded Tommy Robredo of Spain. Win that, and Federer could face 12-time major champion Rafael Nadal in the quarterfinals in what would be the rivals' 32nd meeting — but first at Flushing Meadows.
