Andy Murray defeated local favourite Jeremy Chardy at the Paris Masters on Wednesday after a routine 6-2 6-4 victory. Murray, who had won all three of their previous encounters, broke Chardy's serve twice in the first set to take it 6-2 before scoring a solitary break at 2-2 in the second courtesy of a double fault from Chardy.

Murray will take the courts again today with doubles partner and best friend Ross Hutchins in the when they take on the 8th seeded Austrian pairing of Oliver Marach and Alexander Peya for a place in the Quarter Finals of the doubles.

In the next round of the singles Murray will meet American Andy Roddick. Their last meeting was at Queen's earlier this year and saw Murray produce a dominant display to beat Roddick 6-3 6-1. Overall, Murray leads their head-to-head 7-3 (5-2 on hard courts).

:worship: Serving like a bot :worship: Returning like a Murray :worship:
Go destroy other Andy :cheerleader:

Chardy actually played pretty well the second set, other than the df on break point, but couldn't really string together good return points.

Simples. -Squawk-

You need to get a job in reporting. Too much professionalism going on in that opening post for mere forums.

DESTRUCTION!! Chardy had no chance. Murray was going to blitz him even if he played his best. Andy's just too good and on another tier compared to him :wavey:

The break between the seasons will most likely halt the momentum in the streak. He'll have to restart it, and there isn't really much practice before Aussie starts. Keep winning though, and possibilities open up.

If he manages to win Paris and then WTF, he will be unstoppable next year. His confidence will be at an all time high and he'll destroy anyone who gets in his way, including Djokovic, Federer and Nadal.

Sometimes players fall into a pattern that works for them entirely by accident - that applies to mental approaches as much as physical I think.

Murray is also striking the forehand better this year since Miami imo ..... which is when he started working with Cahill and Groeneveld. Aside from the accident vs Anderson in Montreal R1, he's not had one bad loss since, gone something like 51/58 since then.

Incidentally, he went wild with his forehand during that loss to Anderson, as if he were experimenting. Must have been the initial period during which he was seriously working on it. Noticeable improvements in his control and ability to be aggressive with it since then.

The Belluci one was pretty bad also, in Madrid R3
