French Open 2016: Andy Murray reaches last 16 in Paris

Andy Murray reached the last 16 of the French Open with a straight-set victory over big-serving Croat Ivo Karlovic.

The British number one, who has reached the semi-finals in each of the past two years, was dominant in recording a 6-1 6-4 7-6 (7-3) win.

He broke Karlovic's opening serve in each of the first two sets before sealing victory in a tie-break.

The Scot will play either American John Isner or Russia's Teymuraz Gabashvili in the next round at Roland Garros.

"It was very close especially in the third set," Murray told the court-side interviewer. "He fought right to the end.

"I started quickly and obviously it is great to get off court in a relatively quick match."
