Second-seeded Andy Murray rallied from a set and 3-0 down to beat the erratic Benoit Paire 2-6, 7-5, 7-5 on Thursday in the third round of the Monte Carlo Masters.

Paire had 47 winners among a number of eye-catching shots but the 16th-seeded Frenchman also made 52 unforced errors.

Paire also lost his composure at key moments, double-faulting when serving for the match and again on Murray's first match point.

Murray next plays No. 10 Milos Raonic of Canada, who had 12 aces in a 6-3, 4-6, 7-6 (5) win against 99th-ranked Damir Dzumur.

Later, eight-time champion Rafael Nadal was playing Dominic Thiem, and Roger Federer was facing Roberto Bautista Agut.
