Classy Federer continues dominance

Roger Federer revealed that his strong start to the 2015 US Open is really just par for the course.

The Swiss maestro has spent less than three hours on court and dropped just nine service games over the course of his two wins at Flushing Meadows this week.

On Thursday, it was Belgian Steve Darcis' turn to be on the wrong end of a Federer drumming, as the Basel-native powered to straight set win in 81 minutes.

However, Federer is not getting too excited just yet, as he has not won the US Open since 2008 despite his strong starts.

"Very often, I start this tournament quite strong," confirmed the five-time US Open winner on Sky Sports.

"It's always gone quite well for me. I've always enjoyed conditions here – the balls, the speed of the court, the atmosphere in the arena. I think this is another good year."

At 34-years-old, Federer is playing some of his best tennis and is coming off the back of a great win over world number one Novak Djokovic in the final of the Cincinnati Masters. He hopes he can continue to play at a high level at the New York City event.

"I've enjoyed myself so many times, so many years," said Federer of Flushing Meadows.  

"It's wonderful that I can still experience it and play this well. It's great. I hope this is not my last one, of course."
