Roberto Bautista Agut made a strong statement on opening day at the Mutua Madrid Open. In an all-Spanish clash, the World No. 45 saved all three break points he faced against Tommy Robredo to upset the 16th seed 6-4, 6-4 in 87 minutes.

Another set of Spaniards squared off Sunday, with wild card Guillermo Garcia-Lopez notching a 6-2, 2-6, 6-2 victory over Pablo Andujar. Garcia-Lopez awaits the winner of a first-round battle between 10th seed Kei Nishikori or Ivan Dodig.

Jeremy Chardy defeated Lukas Rosol 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 to set up a second-round meeting with eighth seed Milos Raonic.

In doubles, Colombians Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah advanced to the second round with a 6-3, 6-4 victory over Max Mirnyi and Mikhail Youzhny in 68 minutes. Elsewhere, Treat Huey and Dominic Inglot battled past Frenchmen Julien Benneteau and Edouard Roger-Vasselin 6-2, 4-6, 10-7.
