Murray progressed into the third round of the Madrid Masters after overcoming Nicolas Almagro on Wednesday after playing for nearly an hour and 47 minutes.

The Scot claimed a 6-1 victory in the first set but was handed a shock 1-6 reversal by the Spaniard. However, the 26-year-old kept his calm and eventually emerged triumphant 6-4 in the deciding set.

Meanwhile, Giraldo who came through the qualifiers managed to upset Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the other second round game on Wednesday. The 26-year-old Colombian ousted the World No 13 in straight sets, 6-4, 6-3, requiring less than 70 minutes.

Giraldo who first defeated former World No 1, Lleyton Hewitt in the first round will be keen to cause a huge upset to Murray's hopes of winning in Madrid for the second time in his career.

The winner of this clash will take on the winner between 78th ranked Lukasz Kubot and 45th ranked Roberto Bautista Agut in the quarterfinal on Thursday.


Murray holds a 2-0 lead over Giraldo in overall meetings. The pair have clashed once in a Grand Slam event where the British No 1 comfortably triumphed in straight sets.
