Roger Federer won Daniel Evans easily in the US Open 3rd round

Third seed Roger Federer defeated Daniel Evans 6-2, 6-2, 6-1 on the US Open men's singles 3rd round.

The match against Daniel Evans was not as difficult as Federer had predicted the day before. "Express train" only let the opponent win five games in a 79-minute battle. Roger Federer overwhelms every parameter, in which, his winner is nearly seven times more than the opponent (48 compared to 7).

Evans began his determination, saving three break-points in the fourth game to equalize 2-2. But it was a rare impression that the English tennis player left in the match. He lost four games easily and lost 2-6 in the first set.

Federer repeatedly attacked the opponent's backhand throughout the game. Evans mainly defended with the ball cuts, but the forte of the world's No. 58 player did not work well against the heavy balls of the "Express Train". Federer won five games to block the ball in the last two sets to close the match with a victory of 6-2, 6-2, 6-1.

Evans played faintly throughout the match and had only seven winners, most of which came from counter-attacks. The British player only wins 41% of the first ball and 39% of the second ball, while the same parameters of Federer are 80% and 71%. At one point, Federer won 13 consecutive points in the match. According to seed number three, his opponent did not guarantee physical fitness after having to play four sets with seed number 25 Lucas Pouille the day before.

"Maybe Evans is not in the best state," Federer shared after the game. "He had to play two days in a row and that was my advantage. But I did not deny that I was playing great tennis, under the great sky in New York. I play not too much different from The first two rounds. Sometimes you need to believe in the team as well as your preparation for the tournament".

Federer won for the first time after three sets at the US Open 2019. In the fourth round, the Swiss player will encounter David Goffin or Pablo Carreno Busta. In the quarterfinals with "Express train", seventh seed Kei Nishikori was eliminated after losing to Alex De Minaur 2-6, 4-6, 6-2, 3-6.
