    World No. 3 Andy Murray made a successful start at the Mutua Madrid Open, having ousted Germany's Florian Mayer in two tie-break sets. The 25-year-old Scot tallied 6 aces through two hours and 4 minutes of play.

    After twice losing a mini-break in the first-set tiebreak, Murray was forced to save four set points. A second set point came at 12-11 for the third seed, who closed the set in 69 minutes. Murray dug out of a 0-3 hole to force a second-set breaker. The World No. 3 regrouped to lead 3-0 before holding four match points at 6-2.

    Murray is through to face 16th seed Gilles Simon in the next round. Simon dismissed fellow Frenchman Jeremy Chardy in the second round, 6-4, 7-6(5).
