Federer eyes improvement in Toronto
 

 

Federer was making his first competitive appearance since losing last month's Wimbledon final to Novak Djokovic but showed no signs of rustiness in Toronto.

 

The Swiss, seeded second at the ATP 1000 hard-court event, took less than an hour to hammer Polansky 6-2 6-0 as he made an ideal start in his bid to win a third Rogers Cup title.

 

Polansky, the world number 129, had no answer to Federer, who set the tone by taking all six break-point opportunities offered to him throughout the match to book a third-round tie with either Marin Cilic or Malek Jaziri.

 

However, despite being satisfied with his evening's work, Federer believes he is still finding his way back to top form after a month-long break.

 

"I started well and that's always helpful to play more freely," the 17-time grand-slam winner said.

 

"I think I could have served better at times but, other than that, already in practice I felt I was moving well.

 

" didn't feel quite so good hitting the ball yet [and I] wasn't quite getting used to the surface.

 

"[But] the last few days have been much better and I'm happy that in the match it kind of all worked really well."
