Roger Federer discusses about Nadal competition and retirement

Kasatkina has beaten all four of the current Grand Slam champions in the previous year: French Open victor Jelena Ostapenko, Australian Open victor Caroline Wozniacki, Wimbledon victor Garbine Muguruza and now Stephens.

Federer returned to stadium court on Sunday afternoon and needed an hour to close out his second-round victory 6-3, 7-6 (8/6).

Federer blasted six aces, had one double fault and won 89 percent of his first serve points, losing just three points on his serve the entire match.

"I was feeling like he was not loving my slice and I was also mixing in drop shots", said Federer who extended his ideal record this season to 14-0.

"I'm just happy that I managed to recover that quickly after surgery and just get out on the court", he added.

Krajinovic had no answer for Federer's serve or relentless return game and ended up winning just 31 of the match's 93 points.

"For me it felt like first match I ever played on the tour". It's what tennis players do. "I think it was a good match".
