New Zealand's Marcus Daniell and British doubles partner Dominic Inglot have won their second-round match at the Australian Open against French duo of Benoit Paire and Hugo Nys on Saturday.

The Kiwi and Brit pair eased to victory in 53 minutes, winning 6-4, 6-2 in Melbourne.

Daniell and Inglot won a tightly contested first set 6-4, converting one of their three break-point chances.

They were dominant on serve, getting 81 percent of first serves in the opening set.

In the second set, Daniell and Inglot took control with an early break and broke again to cruise through it in 24 minutes. The Kiwi and Brit never faced a break point against their serve in the entire match and won a total of 57 points to 41.
