Roger Federer cruised to a 6-4 6-4 win over Peter Gojowczyk while Stefanos Tsitsipas crashed out of the first round at the Cincinnati Masters.

Federer looked fresh as he overwhelmed Gojowczyk with pinpoint serving and speedy defense.

Gojowczyk failed to convert any of his five break points on the fast Ohio hardcourts, easing the pressure on the 20-times grand slam champion.

Novak Djokovic battled stomach issues to beat Adrian Mannarino 4-6, 6-2, 6-1 and reach the third round in Cincinnati.

Djokovic called for the doctor during the second set against Mannarino but put aside his discomfort to progress to the next round before rain halted afternoon play.

“I wasn't feeling well. I didn't have a great night and wasn't feeling that well for the first set and a half. I kind of made it through, and with the help of the doctor and God (smiling) I'm just happy that I managed to overcome the challenge.

Nick Kyrgios forgot to bring his tennis shoes to his match against Denis Kudla at the Cincinnati Masters.

Kyrgios made it all the way down to the court in his basketball shoes — something he generally does before switching to his tennis shoes each match. Except when he went to his bag to pull them out, his shoes were nowhere to be found.
