    (16) Gilles Simon vs. Julien Benneteau

    World No. 17 Gilles Simon holds a narrow 4-3 series advantage over compatriot Julien Benneteau. Sunday signal their first clay-court meeting since 2008.

    Simon makes his return to competition after reaching the final four in Bucharest. The 28-year-old won consecutive matches before falling to eventual champion Lukas Rosol in the semi. Simon is set to contest his fifth Mutua Madrid Open, where he finished runner-up to world No. 3 Andy Murray in 2008.

    Benneteau looks to regroup following a first-round defeat at the Portugal Open. The 31-year-old veteran, ranked World No. 33, is seeking his first Madrid victory since 2006.

    Jeremy Chardy vs. Horacio Zeballos

    No. 26 Jeremy Chardy is a modest 7-9 for the season after losing a round of 16 match to Argentina’s Juan Monaco in Barcelona. The 26-year-old Frenchman is bidding for his second victory in Madrid.

    World No. 41 Horacio Zeballos will attempt to rebound following a first-round loss in Portugal. The 28-year-old Argentine looks to record his ninth tour-level victory of the season.
