IT’S a step up in class for Andy Murray at the Madrid Masters today as the Scot faces 16th seed Gilles Simon.
Murray beat the Frenchman on route to the title last year and will be hoping for a repeat against an opponent he’s beaten in 13 of their 15 meetings.
The other third-round action includes Nick Kyrgios – who claimed the scalp of Stan Wawrinka yesterday – against Pablo Cuevas, world No.1 Novak Djokovic versus Roberto Bautista-Agut and Richard Gasquet against Kei Nishikori.
The night’s NBA play-off game sees Toronto Raptors try to level the series against Miami Heat after losing the opener in their semi-final showdown.
