India’s Somdev Devvarman sailed into the second round of the men’s singles event at the French Open with a straight-set win over Daniel Munoz-De La Nava of Spain at the Roland Garros here.

It took Somdev little more than two-and-a-half hours to get the better of his Spaniard opponent 6-3 6-3 7-5.

A tough encounter awaits Somdev in the second round as the 188th ranked Indian will be up against world number three Roger Federer of Switzerland.

Federer had defeated Spanish qualifier Pablo Carreno-Busta 6-2 6-2 6-3 in his opening round.
