American number one John Isner exits the Paris Masters at the hands of Michael Llodra.

Michael Llodra overcame the challenge of America's John Isner in front of his home crowd at the Paris Masters this afternoon.

The big-serving Isner struggled to find any rhythm during the opening set and ended up losing 6-4 to his French opponent.

The second set was much more of an even contest that headed into a tie-breaker to determine a victor.

Despite both players holding their own service games initially, veteran Llodra claimed a crucial late break to book his place in round three of the competition with a 7-5 success.

He will now face either Juan Martin del Potro or Alejandro Falla for a slot in round four.
