Murray breezes through in Madrid
Murray's last win came against Fernando Gonzalez in New York
British number one Andy Murray made a confident start to his Madrid Masters campaign with a convincing win over Spanish qualifier Ivan Navarro Pastor.
Murray broke twice in the opening set and once in the second on his way to a 6-2 6-4 win - his first tour victory since the US Open last month.
The Scot will face a tough task against third seed Ivan Ljubicic in round two.
Fellow Briton Tim Henman takes on Spain's Fernando Verdasco in his opening match at 1900 BST on Monday.
Murray broke serve in the fourth and eighth games, taking the first set with a delicate lob as he swept through the opening set.
Pastor, ranked 129 in the world, put up sterner resistance in the second but cracked under the pressure when serving to stay in the match.
A cross-court forehand winner gave Murray victory on his second match point, after Pastor had saved the first with a net-cord.
