Britain's Tim Henman eased into the second round of the Australian Open with a straight sets win over France's Jean-Rene Lisnard in Melbourne.
The 11th seed won 6-2 6-4 6-2 with plenty to spare as his prowess at the net left his opponent floundering.
Henman faced just three break points in the match, although he had to overcome a downturn in form in the second set.
The British number one will face the Czech Republic's Radek Stepanek in round two.
Henman was delighted with his display after committing to a style of play he believes will stand him in good stead at the Australian Open.
"The tone I set early on was very positive, chip and charge and not giving him the rhythm he needs to play his game," he said.
"That tempo was to my advantage and I was able to maintain that for all three sets.
"Committing to that style of play, and being aggressive whether you are winning
or losing the point, I knew that was the right way to play.
"I was very aggressive from the outset and set the tone and made sure I was
playing the match under my terms.
"Even in the first game I could have broken him. When you put a little doubt in your opponent's mind early on it's going to put extra pressure on.
"I've probably been guilty in years gone by of not doing that enough."
