HOUSTON, NOV. 16. Roger Federer still looks unbeatable on the court.
Showing no signs of a torn thigh muscle that sidelined him for three weeks, Federer returned to action on Monday with a 6-1, 7-6 (4) victory over Gaston Gaudio of Argentina in the first round of the ATP Masters Cup championships.
Two-time Masters Cup winner Lleyton Hewitt of Australia was leading Carlos Moya of Spain 5-4 in the first set and 30-0 in the 10th game when the match was suspended because of rain. The players will pick up on Tuesday where they left off. The start was delayed more than 3-1/2 hours.
Federer no longer wears his hair in a ponytail. He cut it two months ago in Toronto, and more recently it's been shorn even shorter.
``Who knows, in a couple of weeks it might be even shorter,'' Federer said. ``I'm taking it step by step, just like my tennis.'' AP
