Is Roger Federer in top form? Well, have a look at this forehand pass and you be the judge. The Swiss maestro moved past the ever dangerous Croat Ivo Karlovic on Friday at the Sony Open with a tidy, 6-4, 7-6(4) victory in one hour and 13 minutes.

Federer was so crisp on serve and so consistent off the ground today, that he probably didn't need to put on this otherworldly shotmaking display, but when you're the maestro, you have to give the people what they want, right?

Federer committed only six unforced errors and lashed 27 winners in improving his career record to 11-1 versus Karlovic. Federer's average service game was a miniscule 1:16, and he only dropped three points on serve in 11 service games.

Next up, Federer will face either Fernando Verdasco or Thiemo De Bakker in the third round.
