Paris: Roger Federer won 13 games in succession as the 16-time Grand Slam title-winner easily defeated French Maxime Teixeira 6-3, 6-0, 6-2 to reach the Roland Garros last 32 on Wednesday.

Federer, the 2009 champion in Paris, will take on Serbian 29th seed Janko Tipsarevic, who beat Spain's Pere Riba, for a place in the last 16.

The Swiss great overcame an early break before breezing through in just 84 minutes.

Teixeira, playing in his first Grand Slam event and first tour-level tournament, looked every inch the world 181.

Federer never needed to reach top gear and was always in control from the time he broke to lead 5-3 in the first set.

Three breaks of serve followed in the second set in which the 22-year-old Frenchman won just eight points.

Federer had swept 13 games in a row before Teixeira stopped the rot at 1-4 in the third set and the underdog even saved a match point in the seventh game.

But the world number three wrapped up victory on a sweltering Court Suzanne Lenglen when Teixeira went wide with a backhand.
