Andy Murray defeat Andy Roddick in Paris

Posted by Admin On 11:14 AM

Andy Murray powered into the Paris Masters quarter-finals with a stunning straight-sets destruction of Andy Roddick. The British number one remains on course for a fourth consecutive title after easing to a 6-2 6-2 victory in the French capital.
Murray, champion in Bangkok, Tokyo and Shanghai, is now enjoy a career-best 18-match victorious run. Murray broke Roddick's once unrivalled serve twice in both sets, hitting 27 winners along the way to book a last-eight showdown with Tomas Berdych - a 7-5 6-4 victor over Janko Tipsarevic.
The 24-year-old set the tone when he broke Roddick's serve in the first game before holding his own serve. He continued to apply pressure on the American's serve and shaped a stunning backhand to earn three break points in game seven, and duly converted one to go 5-2 up.
Murray, who also crushed the American for the loss of just four games at Queen's Club in the summer, wrap up the first set in style with another crisp winner as Roddick seemed to have few answers to the one-way traffic.
Things went from bad to worse for A-Rod when Murray straight away broke his serve in the second set before holding serve in the second game. Roddick vented his aggravation to umpire Mohamed Lahyani by destroying his racket, earning a code violation for racket abuse as a result, as Murray won the next two games to take a 4-0 lead in the second set.
The 29-year-old from Texas then dug in and held serve to get him on the scoreboard, but Murray hit back immediately with a hold to love to put him on the brink of victory. Roddick finally tested Murray en route to claiming his fourth game but it was too little, too late as Murray unleashed his sixth and seventh aces of the day to seal a forceful straight-sets triumph.
Murray revealed his tactic was to get on top of Roddick and disrupt his powerful serve from the start.He's been one of the best players in the last 10 years and is always difficult to play against but I started the match very well and got up an early break,Murray told.
The Scot denied he was carrying an injury after he was forced to call for the trainer during the first set and insisted it was likely to be due to the early start.I just felt my constrain similar to last week and I just wanted to get it checked out so it's something I will have to monitor,he added.
I think everybody has niggles at this stage of the season and you just have to try and get though them and make sure you're not doing any long-term injure but it felt fine afterwards.It might have been amazing to do with the early start and maybe I wasn't quite as warm up as much as I would have been if I'd have played later.The world number three also uncovered the early start was a minor trouble to his preparations.
