Roger Federer defeated Peter Gojoywczyk in straight sets, 6-2 6-1, to reach the Basel's Swiss Indoors second round. The 38-year-old said: "I thought the match was good. I felt like I had a good spring in my step and was quick onto the ball.
Didn’t take me long to get used to the conditions. That was positive. [I] knew of the danger playing Peter, especially indoors. He had a great couple of qualifying matches, so I knew he’d be tough, especially [because] he beat Karlovic easy, who serves great.
If you have the chance to go through a game quickly, you have to take advantage of it. It could be a bit different than before, when I started jumping up and down and I did not necessarily push for a second break. I do it in a different way now than ten years ago.
It will make you save a lot of energy. Over 53 minutes you do not make too much of an effort. That's ideal. It's like a super training in front of a crowd. I felt very well already during the warm up. It was confirmed in the match", concluded the world No.
