Analysis:

While it was a slightly underwhelming win from the Swiss, he continued on his winning ways at the Australian Open, trying to achieve the same success he did three years ago.

He will have to face Italian Andreas Seppi in the next round, and this type of performance may not cut it in the later stages.
