2 Federer advances in Dubai

2 Roger Federer returned to action in Dubai and after a shaky start, advanced over Tunisian wild card player Malek Jaziri, 5 – 7, 6 – 0, 6 – 2.  Fed did not look to be at the top of his game in the first set but came on strong in the second set.  In the third set, he broke in the fifth game and then again in the seventh to take his opening round match in three.  Only serving at 55% on first serves is not what Roger is going to need to beat the likes of Djokovic in this tournament, as well as all of the big four which will be in action in the upcoming Paribas Open in Indian Wells, CA.  Still, he won and moves on…I look for Roger to pick up his game and get himself ready to really compete in this tournament and at Indian Wells. 1 Djokovic will be in action tomorrow.
