Andy Murray cruised through the second round of the 2016 Shanghai Rolex Masters on Wednesday, beating Steve Johnson, but Rafael Nadal suffered a shock upset at the hands of Viktor Troicki, losing in two sets.

Stan Wawrinka swept aside Kyle Edmund in straight sets to progress to the third round. Meanwhile, Marcel Granollers stunned seventh seed Tomas Berdych. David Goffin avoided a similar upset against Benoit Paire, and Milos Raonic eased past Paolo Lorenzi.
