Federer advances with straight-sets win over Tomic
Federer broke the 20-year-old Tomic's in the first game of the match, ending a run of 76 consecutive service games held by Tomic, who won his first ATP tournament last week at the Sydney International.
The No. 2-ranked Federer, who has won a record 17 major titles, also beat Tomic in the fourth round of last year's tournament.
