Melbourne, Australia (AP) Andy Roddick has advanced to the third round at the Australian Open.

The seventh-seeded American, trying to win a second grand slam title to add to his 2003 U.S. Open championship, beat qualifier Xavier Malisse of Belgium 4-6, 6-2, 7-6 (1), 6-2.

Malisse, a former top 20 player now ranked no. 195, played strongly over most of the first three sets but appeared deflated by his lopsided tiebreaker loss in the third.

Roddick will face French veteran Fabrice Santoro in the third round.
