Juan Carlos Ferrero edges past Mikhail Youzhny during the opening round of the Shanghai Masters.

Former world number one Juan Carlos Ferrero has advanced through to the second round of the Shanghai Masters with a straight-sets victory over Mikhail Youzhny.

The opening set proved to be a lengthy affair, with Ferrero eventually prevailing as the winner 7-4 on a tie-break.

Both players continued to hold their serve during the second set, until Youzhny's resistance was broken in the final game of the match to allow his Spanish opponent to claim a 7-6 6-4 win.

Ferrero will now play compatriot Fernando Verdasco in the next round in China.
