There were no big surprises on Day 2 at the Australian Open, as the favorites in the bottom half of the bracket moved through to the second round unscathed. No. 2 Roger Federer encountered little resistance in his opening match against Benoit Paire, starting with a break of Paire and advancing in straight sets, 6-2, 6-4, 6-1. The match at Laver Arena lasted just 83 minutes and Federer will now face Nikolay Davydenko in the second round.
Aussie Bernard Tomic also advanced at the bottom of the bracket, setting up a potential third-round match between Federer and the local favorite. Tomic is fresh off his first ever ATP title -- a win in Sydney this past weekend -- and he handled Leonardo Mayer in straight sets. He'll face Daniel Brands in the second round.
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga was the biggest name advancing in Federer's bracket, moving on with a straight-set victory over Michael Llodra. The No. 7 Tsonga and Federer would not meet until the quarterfinals.
