Top seed Sir Andy Murray moved into the third round of the Mutua Madrid Open tennis tournament on Tuesday courtesy of a comfortable straight sets 6-4, 6-3 win over Romanian wildcard Marius Copil. Murray was the biggest name in action on a blustery Tuesday in Madrid, but needed just over one hour and 20 minutes to claim his win to move into the last 16.

Some of Tuesday's matches were for a place in the second round with Spain's Nicolas Almagro booking a tie against Novak Djokovic after defeating countryman Tommy Robredo 6-3, 3-6, 6-1.

Meanwhile, Ryan Harrison defeated Bernard Tomic 7-5, 4-6, 6-2, while number 9 seed David Goffin had to work hard to take his first set 7-6 (7) against Florian Meyer, before running away with the second 6-0.

Number 8 seed Dominic Thiem joins Murray in the third round after beating Jared Donaldson 6-3, 6-4.
