    Ferrer, Almagro in second-round action Fourth seed David Ferrer is set to begin his run in Madrid, as he takes the court against Uzbekistan's Denis Istomin. The veteran is joined in second-round competition by compatriot Nicolas Almagro, who faces Mikhail Youzhny.

    (4) David Ferrer vs. Denis Istomin

    World No. 4 David Ferrer looks to break a 1-1 series tie with world No. 49 Denis Istomin. Wednesday marks their first meeting on clay.

    Ferrer is back on court after a runner-up finish to Switzerland's Stanislas Wawrinka at the Portugal Open. The 31-year-old veteran will be making his 11th appearance at the Mutua Madrid Open, where he advanced to the final four in 2010 (lost to Federer).

    Istomin is through to the second round following a straight-set dismissal of Belgian qualifier Xavier Malisse. The 26-year-old is seeking his 17th match win of the season.

    (11) Nicolas Almagro vs. Mikhail Youzhny

    World No. 12 Nicolas Almagro trails world No. 31 Mikhail Youzhny 4-0 in the head-to-head series. The players are slated to contest their first clay-court match in three years.

    Almagro passed into the second round after opponent Tobias Kamke retired with a hip injury. The 27-year-old Barcelona finalist is bidding for his 24th victory of the season.

    Youzhny advanced to the second round after holding off Italy's Fabio Fognini in three sets. The former world No. 8 will attempt to win just his 9th Tour-level match of the year.
