Jamie Murray and Brazilian partner Bruno Soares are safely through to the third round of the men’s doubles at the French Open.

The fourth seeds defeated French pair David Guez and Vincent Millot 6-2, 7-6 (7/5) having twice recovered from a break down in the second set.

Murray is currently ranked third in the world but has the chance to move back to No 1 with a good run at Roland Garros.

Since reaching the third round in Paris last year, the Scot has made the final at every grand slam, winning his first title with Soares at the Australian Open in January.

The pair have not lost a slam match together, taking their unbeaten run to eight matches.
