Federer stormed into the third round of this year's Wimbledon Championships after dumping Gilles Muller in straight sets on Thursday.

The match lasted just 94 minutes as the 32-year-old, seeded fourth in this year's competition at SW19, triumphed, 6-3, 7-5, 6-3, over the Luxembourgian, who is ranked 99 places behind him.

The 17-time Grand Slam winner's next challenge is against Giraldo, in what will be the second meeting between the pair.

The 26-year-old battled it out against his Spanish opponent Marcel Granollers in a marathon five-set encounter that stretched up to Friday for deciding the winner with the game lasting 205 minutes.

Giraldo trailed 4-6 in the first set and drew level by winning the second in tie breaker 7-6 (2) before falling 1-6 in the following set. The 35th ranked right-hander fought back to clinch the fourth set 6-1 and force a decider.

Play was suspended four games into the fifth set and the Colombian finally won the match on Friday after managing a 7-5 victory, to set up his clash against the Swiss maestro.

The winner of this match will face either Jerzy Janowicz or Tommy Robredo in the pre-quarter finals on Monday.


Federer holds a 1-0 lead over Giraldo in overall meetings. The only clash between the duo took place in the first round of the 2011 US Open.

What They Say

Roger Federer (after beating Muller): "I'm very happy with the match today because I knew it could have been difficult. And we saw signs of it I think midway through the second set when I think for four straight games I didn't see much on his serve. Then actually the rain delay kind of changed things around. I came out and I was a bit more clear of how I was going to return him."
