Janko Tipsarevic sees off the challenge of Igor Sijsling to advance into the last 16 of the Paris Masters.

Janko Tipsarevic proved too strong for Igor Sijsling to move into the third round of the Paris Masters.

Dutchman Sijsling had impressed on Tuesday with a win over Alexandr Dolgopolov but he was unable to repeat that performance against his Serbian opponent as he fell to a 6-4 7-6 defeat.

Sijsling created more break points than Tipsarevic in the opening set but he was unable to convert and that allowed the world number nine to take a one-set lead.

Tipsarevic improved his level of performance in the second, allowing Sijsling no opportunities on his serve to earn himself a chance to serve for the match, but Sijsling surprised Tipsarevic to take the set to 5-5.

However, after the set moved to 6-6, Tipsarevic dominated the tie-break that followed to take it 7-0 and move into the last 16.
