Fourth seed Tomas Berdych is through to the third round of the Shanghai Masters after defeating Andreas Seppi in straight sets.

Czech Republic's Tomas Berdych has progressed through to the Shanghai Masters third round with a comfortable victory over Italy's Andreas Seppi.

The 2010 Wimbledon runner-up was never troubled by the world number 26, as he eased to a 6-3 6-3 win.

A solitary break of serve in the opening set was enough for Berdych as Seppi struggled to make an impact on his opponent's serve.

It was a similar case in the second set as Seppi could only muster one break point, which he couldn't convert, and Berdych sealed a straight-sets victory.

He will now play American Sam Querrey in the next round, after he defeated Kei Nishikori.
