Juan Carlos Ferrero takes on Igor Andreev in the opening round of the Mutua Madrid Open. It will be one entertaining match to watch as both are really great movers on clay and are trying to gather some crucial points.
Ferrero, a former French Open champion has definitely not had a fruitful year so far as he searches for his second win of 2012. He is presently ranked at 49 in the World and would be looking to get some matches under his belt during this clay-court season. He faces some healthy competition in Andreev and would be not taking this match lightly.
Andreev, on the other hand, is ranked at No.77 in the World. With a 9-7 win-loss record in 2012, Andreev would not mind cracking the Top-50 again. This is his favored surface as he looks to start this tournament on an impressive note against Ferrero.
The two have met 6 times before, with the Spaniard leading 5-1. They last met in 2010 with Ferrero prevailing in straight sets.
