Paris: Roger Federer swept qualifier Pablo Carreno Busta on Sunday in the first round of the French Open, 6-2, 6-2, 6-3.

Playing at Roland Garros for the 15th year in a row, Federer earned a big roar from the center court crowd after he closed out the victory with a picturesque backhand winner. Federer lost only seven points on his first serve and was broken just once by Carreno Busta.
