Federer not slowed by delayed match
NEW YORK (AP) — Roger Federer easily won his delayed first match at the U.S. Open, needing just 93 minutes to beat Grega Zemlja of Slovenia, 6-3, 6-2, 7-5, in a matchup postponed from Monday night because of rain.
Top-seeded Novak Djokovic began his bid for a second U.S. Open title, and seventh major trophy overall, by beating 112th-ranked Ricardas Berankis of Lithuania 6-1, 6-2, 6-2. Other straight-set winners included No. 5 Tomas Berdych and No. 10 Milos Raonic.
On a day that American men went 5-2, led by No. 13 John Isner and No. 26 Sam Querrey, a handful of seeded players made quick departures, including No. 14 Jerzy Janowicz of Poland, a semifinalist at Wimbledon last month. Other losers included No. 15 Nicolas Almagro, No. 25 Grigor Dimitrov and No. 28 Juan Monaco.
