Federer makes quick work of Young at US Open

NEW YORK (AP) - Top-seeded Roger Federer returned to the U.S. Open on Monday and defeated Donald Young 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 to improve his career record to 62-7 at Flushing Meadows.

Looking to extend his record with an 18th Grand Slam title, Federer finished with seven aces and needed only 1 hour, 34 minutes to dispatch Young, an American who endured a 17-match losing streak earlier in the year.

Federer, winner earlier this year at Wimbledon and the Olympic silver medalist, came into the U.S. Open seeded first for the 23rd time at a Grand Slam, breaking the record he shared with Pete Sampras.

Federer had left the U.S. Open the last two years after semifinal losses to Novak Djokovic.
