Andy Murray cantered into the fourth round of the BNP Paribas Masters with a superb 6-2, 6-2 demolition of Andy Roddick.

This match was similar in many ways to the thrashing Murray handed out at Queens. The Scot was clinical from the baseline, manoeuvring the sweating American around the court and firing winners almost at will. Roddick's serve - once a fearsome beast but now sadly neutered - was dismissed.

The American has never been known for his tactical acumen. "Plan B" invariably involves some form of random net rushing and suicide volleying and it didn't take long for this to make an appearance.

Murray loves a target. The Scot routinely makes the best volleyers look clueless at the net; Roddick didn't stand a chance.

In truth Roddick's game is massively diminished from his glory days. Unfortunately his attitude is not. At the start of the second set a routine ground stroke sailed long and the frustrations boiled over. The American's racquet met an untimely end and a petulant argument with the umpire ensued.

Murray remained stoic, but inside the Scot must have been revelling in his ability to destroy an old foe so comprehensively.

Great win! But being made to play at 9.30am is not exactly clever scheduling.

Nice report Phil.  Thanks.

Andy turned in a master-class performance - but does Roddick need tennis lessons now?  It's always embarrassing to watch a once very good player charging futiley round the court then throwing a major pet because he's not happy with the way the umpire deals with his frustrated racquet smashing.  He should be grateful Molay is one of the more patient and sympathetic ones.

Great win! But being made to play at 9.30am is not exactly clever scheduling.
Well Paris 10.30 am - but it's still a ridiculous time to start playing matches.  Andy said he had to eat a large quanity of food, as per his regime, about 45 minutes before he went on court, and also said the twinge in his hamstring could have been due to his not having had the time to warm up properly - despite getting up earlier than usual.  You'd think the organisers might just have enough savvy to take the players' preparations into account.

Nice little funny report, boogers. Hopefully the sliced and diced duck will retire next year. He has nothing left in him other than the same old antics and tirades.

Andy plays Berdych at 1 p.m. tomorrow according to Sky. Their transmission starts then so I imagine he's first of the quarters.

Andy plays at 2pm Paris time.  Much better for him for warming etc.

Good Luck Andy. Keep going.
