British number one Andy Murray reached the third round of the Paris Masters with a 6-1 6-2 defeat of Croatian Borna Coric in under an hour.
Murray will next face Belgian David Goffin who he could come up against later in November in the Davis Cup final.
Murray broke Coric in the second game of the first set to assert his authority early on in the match.
The number two seed then held serve for a second time to move into a commanding 3-0 lead.
Murray continued to dominate the set and went on to win it in comfortable fashion by a 6-1 scoreline.
The second set went with serve until the fifth game when Murray broke again before holding to lead 4-2.
Another break of serve in game seven set Murray up for victory which he secured by serving out for a 6-1 6-2 success in 58 minutes.
There was no place in the next round for Murray's fellow Briton Aljaz Bedene who lost in straight sets to American John Isner.
The number 13 seed beat Bedene, a qualifier, was able to cruise through the first set before winning a tie-break in the second to clinch a 6-3 7-6 (7/3) success.
