Murray returns from injury, fights off Muller

World No. 1 Andy Murray made a welcome return to the ATP World Tour on Wednesday afternoon when he improved to 6-0 lifetime against Gilles Muller in a hard-fought 7-5, 7-5 victory in one hour and 56 minutes for a place in the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters third round.

"I'm disappointed to lose from the position that I was in".

Ramos will next face Marin Cilic in the last 8, after the Croatian overcame 9th seed Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic 6-2, 7-6 in the day' other match.

The unseeded Indo-Uruguay pair fought past its rival 6-3, 6-7 (7), [10-2] in an hour and 27 minutes.

"He's a lefty as well so it's good I got some practice in". If that ball starts falling shorter and shorter, he's susceptible to any player who can step into the court and flatten it out, as Robin Soderling famously did back in the 2009 French Open, and as Edmund suggested today.

Playing in his first tournament back after a month-long layoff through injury, Murray broke four times in the opening set on the Monaco clay to earn the lead. "I couldn't get the breakthrough until right at the end".

However, Ramos-Vinolas staged a brilliant late comeback to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat and pick up his first win over a world number one.

Novak Djokovic will want to keep his preparations for the French Open to stay on course when the world number two faces off against the risky David Goffin in the quarterfinals of the Monte Carlo Masters on Friday.

Ramos-Vinolas hit back in impressive fashion, finally holding for the first time for 1-1 in the second set and then again after a break to establish a 3-1 lead.

"I went on court knowing it's going to be one of these kind of matches that if you don't play well, you are probably going to go out".

Three-time Grand Slam victor Wawrinka won Monte Carlo three years ago over compatriot and friend Roger Federer.

The Scot continued to labour on his serve but somehow limited the damage, saving break point in the next game then fending off two set points while serving at 4-5.

There were a couple of upsets as German Jan-Lennard Struff knocked out eighth-seeded Grigor Dimitrov 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 and Argentine Diego Schwartzman beat 12th-seeded Roberto Bautista Agut 6-3, 7-6 (3).
