Top-seeded Roger Federer defeated Lleyton Hewitt 6-3, 6-4 in the second round of the rain-soaked ATP Masters Cup Championships on Wednesday night. Carlos Moya had to sit through a rain delay of nearly eight hours before beating Gaston Gaudio 6-3, 6-4 in an earlier second-round match. Federer was leading 4-2 in the second set when showers halted play for an hour.
