Roger Federer avoided any more security scares to move safely into the third round of the French Open Wednesday but danger lurks ahead for the Swiss, namely in the shape of Japanese Kei Nishikori.While second seed Federer was beating Spain's Marcel Granollers 6-2, 7-6(1), 6-3, Nishikori took center stage on Court Phillipe Chatrier and a straight sets win over Brazil's Thomaz Bellucci offered further proof of his growing threat.Nishikori was broken twice, at 5-2 in the second and third sets, but neither proved too damaging as he moved through to a third round clash with Germany's Benjamin Becker who beat Spanish 32nd seed Fernando Verdasco in a five-set cliffhanger.Federer, on collision course with Nishikori in the semifinal, will play Bosnia's Damir Dzumhur in round three after he beat Marcos Baghdatis 6-4, 6-3, 4-6, 6-2 .
