Edmund 6-3 6-2 7-5 Elias

British number two Kyle Edmund after reaching the second round: "I controlled a lot of the match. In the third set it showed why in a best of five match you have to keep your concentration. I felt like I was cruising and still went down a break.

"It was good I was able to regain my concentration and finish off in straight sets."

Edmund 6-3 6-2 7-5 Elias

So what next for Kyle Edmund? Possibly a meeting with 12th-seed and home favourite Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

Tsonga, who regularly goes deep into Slams, has just kicked off his opening match against Argentine Renzo Olivo on Chatrier.

Edmund lies in wait for the winner. If it is Tsonga, and Edmund plays like he did today, then it could be a cracker.

After a disappointing morning, with Johanna Konta's shock defeat, that was a much better afternoon for British fans.

Andy Murray and Kyle Edmund join Aljaz Bedene in round two.

Game, set and match

Edmund 6-3 6-2 7-5 Elias

Kyle Edmund is the third British player to book his player in round two. A fine effort. He was dominant, particularly in the first two sets.

*Edmund 6-3 6-2 6-5 Elias

At 0-30, serving for the match, Kyle Edmund could be forgiven for tightening up a little. It doesn't happen. He unleashes two more forehands to get back to 30-30.

Nightmare for Elias. He stops mid-point claiming the ball was long. The umpire disagrees. The point goes to Edmund and that brings up match point...

*Edmund 6-3 6-2 6-5 Elias

Kyle Edmund is a game away from the second round. Another fist pump from the British number three as he breaks Elias at the perfect moment. The forehand is fizzing again, just like the early stages of this match.

Edmund 6-3 6-2 5-5 Elias*

Portugal's Gastao Elias puts the pressure on Kyle Edmund, winning a game and making the Briton serve to stay in the set. Will the 22-year-old show any signs of nerves?

There's none evident from young Kyle. Some good serving from Edmund helps him clinch the game.

Late start for Bedene

BBC Sport in Paris

The schedule is out for Wednesday and British number three Aljaz Bedene is last on Court Three against Jiri Vesely, so we're looking at around 17:00 BST at the earliest for that one. Petra Kvitova is first up on Court One against Bethanie-Mattek Sands at 10:00, while Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic will be on mid-afternoon duty.

Murray 6-4 4-6 6-2 6-0 Kuznetsov

World number one Andy Murray after his first-round win against Andrey Kuznetsov: "He goes for shots, plays very aggressive and tries to take you to the baseline. He has had a good clay court season so I knew it would be difficult.

"Last year was a great year for me and it was the best I have ever played here.

"Every year I have come back and tried to do a a little better.

"I have good memories from Paris last year when I reached the final and I will try to have another good run here this year."

Edmund back level

Edmund 6-3 6-2 4-4 Elias*

Over on Court 14, British number two Kyle Edmund was trailing by a break in this third set but he's got things right back on terms.

A break and two quick service games. Edmo is back at the impressive level of the first couple of sets. What does his Portuguese opponent have left?

A bit more it seems. He holds serve to stop the run of three games in Edmund's favour. Kyle holds as well. We're heading to crunch time in this set.

Claire Cottingham: That probably wasn't quite as easy as Andy Murray hoped it would

John Arkless: Andy Murray has started to look a little more like himself in the last two sets

So that victory, which came in just over two-and-a-half hours, means Murray will now face Slovakia's Martin Klizan in the next round.

And Klizan's win over France's Laurent Lokoli was an interesting one.

Earlier today, Klizan beat home hope Lokoli in a match that was more notable for the friction between the pair than the tennis.

The Frenchman was not happy with an ecstatic reaction from Klizan to his double fault, accusing him of lacking respect and then refused to shake hands with him at the end of his five-set defeat.

Hope they didn't bump into each other in the locker room...

We've not seen Andy Murray smiling much today (unless he was being sarcastic during a sticky spot earlier in the match), but finally he breaks out in a grin during his on-court interview with Fabrice Santoro.

Muzza evens lays on the charm, telling the Frenchman he used to love watching him play and that's where his love of drop-shots comes from. Aaah, smooth.

Full quotes to come.

Game, set and match - Murray

Murray 6-4 4-6 6-2 6-0 Kuznetsov

"Ooooh!"

"Aaaah!"

The Chatrier crowd are being wooed by some lovely chasing between the pair on court in front of them.

Murray digs out another remarkable recovery from the baseline, Kuznetsov gamely chasing to entertain the punters with a rally.

But it doesn't last long. Match point...Murray hammers down a backhand that dusts the baseline.

Ah-ha! The Murray drop-shot has been impeccable today. Another deft backhand spins away from Kuznetsov's reach for 30-30... and that could also be the match.

Wait...Kuznetsov responds with a decent serve that Murray can't bat back with his backhand, but then in the next point the Brit forces deuce...

The sun has finally emerged on day three and a sense of normality has returned over the last couple of sets for Murray. Coaches Delgado and Lendl mutter doubtles insightful tactical titbits to each other, while the rest of the crowd come to life with the end of this one apparently in sight. "Allez On-deeee!" as the locals say.

Elias breaks Edmund

*Edmund 6-3 0-3 Elias

Kyle Edmund has played at a high level this afternoon but a lull at the start of the third set has cost him his service game.

Perhaps there is life in this match yet. Elias wins the following game as well. Determined stuff from the man from Portugal.

What have we learnt?

Barry Flatman

Sunday Times tennis correspondent on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

It's good that Andy Murray has had two and a half hours on court, that can only be for the good.

When he's put his mind to his tennis he's been easily dominant. I think he's got to cut out the negativity, but will he ever be able to do that?

There will be tougher tests and he will have to play a lot better to get through them.

Murray 6-4 4-6 6-2 5-0 Kuznetsov*

So here we are. One more game needed for Murray. Can anyone smell a bagel?

Murray 6-4 4-6 6-2 5-0 Kuznetsov*

Andy Murray knows he can see the finishing line. One final push is all he needs. Andrey Kuznetsov can't wait to stop now.

Murray races into a 40-0 lead, the Russian getting brief respite to win the next point, only for the world number one to pack some extra punch into a powerful forehand which Kuznetsov's backhand isn't strong enough to deal with.

Murray 6-4 4-6 6-2 4-0 Kuznetsov

There were a few worried faces in Camp Murray earlier...

They have probably cheered up a bit by now.

There's a sense of resignation on Andrey Kuznetsov's face. His spirit has been ground down by Andy Murray.

The end is nigh for the Russian.

Well Joshua, Murray is starting to find more rhythm than a funk and soul band. The Scot dances through another comfortable hold, his precision and power from the baseline overwhelming Kuznetsov.

Game and second set

Edmund 6-3 6-2 Elias

We have only just gone beyond the hour mark on Court 14 but Kyle Edmund is two sets to the good.

He is very much playing like a player ranked 59 places higher than his opponent. It has been very impressive.

Edmund almost seems disappointed he can't take the set with a first serve ace. Not to worry! He does it with his second serve! Brilliant stuff from the 22 year-old.

Murray breaks

*Murray 6-4 4-6 6-2 2-0 Kuznetsov

Murray's attacking armoury is starting to overwhelm Kuznetsov now. The Russian knows desperate times are calling for desperate measures and it results in some risk-taking which doesn't bring reward.

Murray has three break points...and takes the first one.

I wonder if Murray has an inner 'calm' person who he tries to talk to when he starts losing the plot. He is chuntering to himself again as a loose backhand takes the opening game of the fourth set into deuce.

It works. A brilliant backhand winner evades Kuznetsov as the Briton takes advantage, and then he wraps up the opener when the Russian's return goes wide.

Come on then Andy. Let's get this wrapped up. I've got a gig to go to...(not that I keep mentioning it.)

Edmund breaks again

*Edmund 6-3 4-1 Elias

Kyle Edmund's forehand is one of the main reasons people more qualified than me think he will climb higher than his current position of 49 in the world.

It is working beautifully out on Court 14 and helps him to a second break in this second set. Edmund is well on his way here...

Murray 6-4 4-6 6-2 Kuznetsov

The turning point? That ridiculous retrieval from the baseline in the second game of that set, where Murray broke the Russian's serve.

Murray looks pretty good now. It's been a bumpy road but he should stay in control from here. Everything is smooth sailing in the Murray camp... we hope.

Game and third set - Murray

Murray 6-4 4-6 6-2 Kuznetsov

Job done. Andy Murray's body and mind are back on the task.

The world number one, after that sticky second set, has regained control and seals the third set when Andrey Kuznetsov guides a volley into the tramlines.

Another fistpump towards his box shows Murray is happy. I think.

Barry Flatman

Sunday Times tennis correspondent on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

Looking ahead there's the prospect of Del Potro and Murray in the third round. They don't play short matches those two. If you remember that Olympic Games classic, I think that will be really tough.

Murray 6-4 4-6 5-2 Kuznetsov*

Kuznetsov's chances of turning this set around are dwindling quickly. His penultimate chance disappears down the drain, despite a wayward Murray backhand giving him a 15-0 lead.

The Russian can't take advantage, however, and a Murray drop shot again leaves him scrambling at the net. When the world number one brings that weapon out, Kuznetsov has struggled to cope.

Murray now another break away from the third set...

Edmund breaks

*Edmund 6-3 2-1 Elias

That must be one of the shots of the tournament from Kyle Edmund. From way behind the baseline he lobs Gastao Elias, landing the ball right where the baseline and tramline meet. Elias sprints back to try and return the ball but he can't manage it.

To make it even better, the point seals a break of serve for Edmund - the first of this second set.

*Murray 6-4 4-6 4-2 Kuznetsov

The Kuznetsov serve is creaking, again. Another break point for Murray. The Russian misses the target with his first serve, then produces an excellent second serve which leaves Murray on the backfoot.

He follows it up with an ace and then seals a gutsy hold with another good serve which a Murray backhand can't find safety with.

Murray 6-4 4-6 4-1 Kuznetsov*

Stunning. Simply stunning. Andy Murray is well and truly back in the groove now, pulling out arguably his best shot of the match to regain his three-game advantage.

Kuznetsov was threatening to peg back Murray again at 40-30, only for the world number one to show sensational athleticism and technique to drill a stretching backhand down the line.

*Murray 6-4 4-6 3-1 Kuznetsov

I bet Andy Murray is a sports psychologist's dream. How he switches so quickly between moods is fascinating. Andrey Kuznetsov claws back a game with a decent service game, and even that does not seem to darken the Briton's ever-brightening mood.

Hopefully this match has turned and Murray has gone through the negative part and is now in a positive frame of mind.
