  1. - - BERDYCH 7-6(6) 6-2 - GAME, SET & MATCH! A straight sets win in the end for Berdych after a tight first set. He serves out with an unreturnable and is through to face either Frenchman Richard Gasquet or South Africa's Kevin Anderson. Full Paris Masters drawsheet

  2. - - BERDYCH 7-6(6) 5-2 - All credit to Seppi as he holds without any drama to at least force Berdych to serve out the match. The Czech former Paris champion has looked very comfortable in this second set though ...

  3. - - BERDYCH 7-6(6) 5-2 - Berdych leaves himself potentially just one game away from a place in the third round and an opening win in this tournament, the top seeds receiving a by into the second round

  4. - - BERDYCH 7-6(6) 4-1 - Berdych is also starting to make sloppy errors as well as he dumps a straightforward forehand into the net. It hands Seppi a game point and one is all he needs to get off the mark in this set

  5. - - BERDYCH 7-6(6) 4-0 - A routine backhand into the net from Seppi lets Berdych off the hook at deuce and instead gives the game point. The Czech squanders it with wild forehand well out but he manages to carve himself out a second chance and this time he does get it as Seppi hits a tired-looking ball into the net. That secures the double break for Berdych and it very much looks all over now

  6. - - BERDYCH 7-6(6) 3-0 - BREAK! Heavy hitting again from Berdych, ending with Seppi sending a backhand long down the centre of the court, and it earns the Czech another break point. Seppi saves it with an ace but Berdych fashions himself a second chance and this time, he grabs it, firing a forehand winner over the net. He is firmly in control now.

  7. - - BERDYCH 7-6(6) 2-0 - Seppi does a decent job of making things tough for Berdych as he attempts to hold to consolidate the break, but the Italian runs out of steam at 40-30 down and the Czech does cement his lead

  8. - - BERDYCH 7-6(6) 1-0 - BREAK! Ouch. That was a tough set to lose for Seppi and the disappointment was etched all over his face as he is broken in the very first game of the second set. Berdych is really beginning to exploit Seppi's comparatively poor movement out to the left hand side

  9. - - BERDYCH 7-6(6) - SET! Berdych enjoys a set point at 6-5 but sends a ball out to squander it. He challenges but more speculatively rather than because he genuinely thought it was in. He makes amends just a couple of points later though when he puts Seppi in a tricky position, the Italian opting not to go for the off forehand volley and instead putting the ball into the net

  10. - - BERDYCH 6-6(3-3) - TIE-BREAK! Berdych races out to a 3-0 lead in the breaker before a couple of errors and a forehand winner from Seppi brings him to level terms at the change of ends.

  11. - - BERDYCH 6-6 - Another huge service hold to love from Seppi sees him force the tie-break to end this first set, which is probably a fair reflection of the match so far

  12. - - BERDYCH 6-5 - An ace down the centre of the T sees Berdych hold to 15 once again and keep this opening set being dominated by serve. Seppi will have to serve to stay in opening set for a second time after the change of ends

  13. - - BERDYCH 5-5 - Seppi shows he is more than up to the pressure as he races through a comfortable service hold to level up once again

  14. - - BERDYCH 5-4 - A spectacular flicked forehand approach shot winner that Berdych picks up off his shoelaces and directs down the line for a winner helps him on his way to the hold that will leave Seppi serving to stay in this first set after the change of ends

  15. - - BERDYCH 4-4 - Huge hitting from Seppi on serve once again - just the one ace from the Italian so far but he has a 74% first serve percentage and has won 79% of those points when he's got his first serve in

  16. - - BERDYCH 4-3 - A love service game from Tomas Berdych as he goes ahead once again, albeit it on serve. A bit of a lull in the intensity in the last couple of games as both men cruise on serve and enjoy little success against it

  17. - - BERDYCH 3-3 - A blistering forehand winner down the line from Seppi, he is really starting to enjoy that shot tonight, helps him on his way to another comfortable hold

  18. - - BERDYCH 2-3 - Much better, finally, on serve from Berdych as he secures an easier game and puts a stop to Seppi's building momentum to sneak out in front once again

  19. - - BERDYCH 2-2 - Great work from Seppi, as he seems encouraged by his performance against serve to discover some rhythm behind it and race around the court, doing enough to put Berdych off and go on to hold and get things fully back on level terms

  20. - - BERDYCH 2-1 - BREAK! An off-balance low forehand volley from Berdych ends up in the bottom of the net to hand Seppi to an immediate break back point. And he gets it! Not convincing on serve from the Czech player in either game so far and he has let Seppi off the hook early

  21. - - BERDYCH 2-0 - BREAK! The Czech is quick to race out to three break points but only one is needed as bides his time in a lengthy rally before rattling a forehand winner straight across court. That was a blistering winner from Berdych to secure the break

  22. - - BERDYCH 1-0 - Berdych battles through a tough opening service hold from deuce, albeit never facing a break point. Not the most confident of openings from the Czech former Paris champion

  23. - - These two have faced each other six times before with Berdych leading the head-to-heads by four wins to two. He won their most recent meeting, on the hard courts at the Shanghai Masters earlier this year, in straight sets

  24. - - The final match of the day is just about ready to get underway with former champion Tomas Berdych taking on tricky Italian Andreas Seppi
