Eighth-seeded Andy Roddick reached the third round at the Paris Masters on Wednesday and took a big step toward qualifying for the ATP World Tour Finals by beating Jarkko Nieminen 6-1, 6-4.

Roddick never looked in trouble against the Finn and didn't face a single break point as he broke his opponent three times. Only the top eight players qualify for the ATP Finals in London from Nov. 21-28.

Roddick is in eighth place in the rankings and will be guaranteed a spot at the year-end tournament unless Fernando Verdasco reaches the final in Paris or Jurgen Melzer wins the tournament.
