    Ferrer faces Stepanek in Madrid opener World No. 6 David Ferrer is set to highlight second-round play in Madrid, as he takes to the court against veteran Radek Stepanek. The Spaniard is joined in action by compatriot Nicolas Almagro, who faces fellow Spaniard Marcel Granollers.

    (5) David Ferrer vs. Radek Stepanek

    Fifth seed David Ferrer holds a 5-3 series edge against world No. 26 Radek Stepanek. Wednesday marks their first clay-court match since 2009.

    Ferrer is back on court after finishing runner-up to world No. 2 Rafael Nadal in Barcelona. The 30-year-old Spaniard is bidding for his 29th victory of the season.

    Stepanek defeated young Australian Bernard Tomic in the first round, 6-2, 7-5. The 33-year-old Czech looks to make his first round of 16 since late February.

    (11) Nicolas Almagro vs. Marcel Granollers

    World No. 13 Nicolas Almagro leads fellow Spaniard Marcel Granollers 5-0 in the series. The players last met at the 2011 Masters 1000 Monte-Carlo, where Almagro recorded a victory in straight sets.

    The 11th seed survived a difficult first-round match, having rallied to oust Colombia’s Santiago Giraldo in three sets. The 26-year-old will attempt to record his 28th win on Wednesday.

    Granollers held on to dismiss veteran Argentine Carlos Berlocq in the first round, 7-5, 3-6, 7-5. The 26-year-old remains on track to make his first round of 16 in Madrid.
