Richard Gasquet sails through to the second round of the Rogers Cup courtesy of a straight-sets victory over Martin Klizan in Montreal.

Richard Gasquet had little trouble in dispatching Martin Klizan in the first round of the Rogers Cup.

The Frenchman took an hour and 23 minutes to beat the 38th-ranked player 6-3 6-2 in Toronto.

Gasquet had to save four break points in the first set, but needed just one of the two that he created on the Slovak's serve to take a one-set lead.

Once again, the seventh seed proved unbreakable in the second set as he prevented Klizan three more times. However, Gasquet was far more creative in his play, setting up 10 chances.

He managed to take two of them on his way to wrapping the set up 6-2 and booking a clash with either Kei Nishikori or Andreas Seppi.
