Federer brushes aside Ramos at Wimbledon


WIMBLEDON, England (AP) - Roger Federer had a familiar result on an unfamiliar court in the first round at Wimbledon.

The Swiss six-time champion was assigned to play his opening game on Court 1 instead of Centre Court at the All England Club for the first time since 2003 but was his usual dominant self in beating Albert Ramos 6-1, 6-1, 6-1 on Monday.

Federer broke Ramos eight times while losing his serve once in the first set.

The 16-time Grand Slam champion is looking to equal the record of seven Wimbledon titles held by Pete Sampras and William Renshaw.
