Tomas Berdych defeats Milos Raonic in straight-sets to reach the quarter-finals of the Paris Masters.

Tomas Berdych has moved into the last eight of the Paris Masters following a straight-sets victory over Canada's Milos Raonic.

The first set was an evenly-matched affair, with both players giving little away off their own service games.

The set went to a tie-break, which Berdych claimed 15-13.

The Czech player then made an early breakthrough in the second set, breaking the Raonic serve on his way to establishing a two-game advantage.

Raonic had the opportunity to level the scores in the seventh game but he failed to capitalise on a break point, which allowed Berdych to maintain his lead.

The world number seven held his nerve to serve out the set 6-4 and book a place in the quarter-finals.
