French Open 2017: Andy Murray roars into quarter-finals

"I was expecting a tough game against a very good claycourt player", Halep said. "I don't think about it during the points", added Halep. Marin Cilic stays in the hat, too, as his opponent Kevin Anderson retired in the second set of their match.

Suddenly Andy Murray is looking like the World No.1 again.

The two-hour win was the 650th Tour-level victory of Murray's career, with the top seed standing 650-181 overall.

Khachanov at 21 is the youngest man to reach the R16 this year, impressed with heavy serving and real weight of shots, but his bid to be the youngest man to reach the quarter-finals on his debut since Rafael Nadal was doomed to failure.

In the women's competition, Romanian Simona Halep established her credentials to become the newest French Open champion with a blistering 6-1, 6-1 victory over Carla Suarez-Navarro of Spain to reach the quarter-finals.

"I don't know how I got the second and third".

'It's never easy, and I think this week he's been playing well.He's hitting great balls.

On facing Murray, Nishikori said: "It's going to be a tough match, but I'm starting to play better and I'm very happy with my tennis right now".

Andy Murray of Britain produced a clinical performance to see off Russian Karen Khachanov and reach a seventh French Open quarterfinal.

Wawrinka, who will take on Croatian Marin Cilic for a place in the last four, squandered three set points in the second set tiebreak but prevailed on his fourth attempt.

"It was a bad tragedy in London and also in Manchester only a few weeks ago", Sir Andy, who will play Kei Nishikori of Japan in the last eight, said.

Argentina's Paola Suarez was the last South American woman to reach a quarter-final at a Slam at Wimbledon in 2004.

- Caroline Garcia defeated Alize Cornet 6-2 6-4 in an all-French fourth-round encounter. "I won?" - Nishikori, when asked what he remembers from his match against upcoming opponent Murray in the U.S. Open quarterfinals in September.

Immediately after the contest ended with a Khachanov error, Murray's thoughts turned to the attacks in London on Saturday that left seven people dead.

In his seventh Paris quarter-final, Murray will face Japanese eighth seed Kei Nishikori, who came from one set down to beat Spain's Fernando Verdasco 0-6, 6-4, 6-4, 6-0. France's Caroline Garcia, right, smiles to compatriot Alize Cornet after she won their fourth round match of the French Open tennis tournament at the Roland Garros stadium, in Paris, France. But after trailing 5-2 in the third set, and love-30 while serving, she switched to what she jokingly called Svitolina Mode and barely a missed a shot the rest of the way. "It doesn't keep me from playing, and it doesn't keep me from playing well", Wawrinka said about his back.

The second seed lost the opening set and was really struggling to find any rhythm.
