Paris:

Andy Murray showed no ill-effects from the injury that forced him to withdraw from the Swiss Indoors as he breezed into the third round at the Paris Masters here on Wednesday.

The world number three, who won three consecutive tournaments in Asia last month, had to pull out of the Basel tournament last week with a buttock muscle strain but he cruised past France's Jeremy Chardy 6-2, 6-4 at Bercy Arena.

Having been granted a bye in the first round, Murray now finds his route to the quarter-finals barred by number 13 seed Andy Roddick.

Murray has a 7-3 career record against the American, and prevailed in straight sets when they met on the grass in the semi-finals at Queen's Club in June this year.
