Andy Roddick reaches round three at the Shanghai Masters for the first time in his career.

Andy Roddick has progressed to the third round of the Shanghai Masters with victory over Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov this afternoon.

American Roddick required a 7-3 success in a tie-break to claim the first set 7-6 in China.

Former Wimbledon youth champion Dimitrov pushed Roddick hard during the second set but was unable to prevent the 29-year-old from wrapping up the match with a 7-5 triumph.

Until now, Roddick had never progressed beyond the second round in Shanghai.

He will now face Spaniard Nicolas Almagro in the next round later this week.
