Why did Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez get a bye in the first round at Madrid?

Because she isnt even seeded.. And its the same with Ivanovic, she is a wildcard and she gets a bye in the first round.

    The Rome semi finalists (Ivanovic, Martinez Sanchez, Serena Williams and Jankovic) recived a bye to give them time to recover and get there.

    Cait is right; they do this for some back-to-back tournaments to reward the good performers. They also did it for the men in Masters 1000 Cincinnati last season.
