The Spaniard came out on top 2-6 4-6 7-6 6-4 3-6 to advance through to the round of 16 in a time of just over three hours.

Having found the first break of serve in the opening game of the contest, Robredo powered ahead to take the first set.

The second proved to be a tighter affair, with Janowicz losing serve in the ninth game with the score tied at 4-4 to allow Robredo to edge ahead to build a two-set lead.
