Roger Federer believes he might just serve and volley his way to another Australian Open title, such is the strength of his trademark shots.

The six‑time champion sealed a simple passage through to the second round last night, defeating Denis Istomin with ease.

Federer downed the world No.101 in three straight sets on Rod Laver Arena; his 59th consecutive first‑round win at a major, a run dating back to the 2003 French Open.

Federer has claimed a world‑record 20 grand slams, hoping to gather a 21st at Melbourne Park by month's end.

Federer is next in action tomorrow against British qualifier Dan Evans, who shocked on his way to the fourth round in 2017.
