Murray must up game to defeat Wawrinka in Paris

Having already received a time violation early in the opening set, Murray was penalised a first serve.

"I have never seen anyone get a warning after they have missed the ball toss".

"Each match I feel like I played better". "It's possible that I'm playing too slow".

"Wish him all the best in the future and I am committed to go after my goals with current team". It was just today it was odd how it came about.

In his seventh Paris quarterfinal, Murray will face Japanese eighth seed Kei Nishikori who defeated 33-year-old Fernando Verdasco of Spain 0-6, 6-4, 6-4, 6-0.

After the match, Murray said, "I wanted to try to change the pace of the shots a little because he is a big hitter".

Andy Murray unleashes a return during his straight sets victory over Russia's Karen Khachanov.

Wawrinka beat Gael Monfils 7-5, 7-6 (7), 6-2, while Cilic led Kevin Anderson 6-3, 3-0 before the South African was forced to retire.

Svitolina reached the quarterfinals for the second time, ending the dream run of world No. 290 Petra Martic with a 4-6, 6-3, 7-5 win.

That match lasted almost four hours and also saw Nishikori drop a set to love.

The third set was a scrappy affair.

28 seed Caroline Garcia knocked out fellow Frenchwoman Alize Cornet 6-2, 6-4 to set up a matchup with second-seed Karolina Pliskova. It's great. I'm really happy to be in the semifinal here.' About his next match against Andy Murray, Wawrinka said: 'It's going to be interesting match, for sure. "The match was really decided in the first set".

She only needed one, winning with a crosscourt forehand victor.

Wawrinka clocked 25 winners against 17 unforced errors and converted six of nine break points to notch his 8th consecutive win against Cilic.

"It was important for me to focus, be tough with myself and fight for every point".

Play has started in the final two women's quarterfinal matches at the French Open.

Wawrinka took a medical timeout midway through the second set, laying down on the sideline and getting massaged by a trainer, but then played well the rest of the way, using his sweet-swinging one-handed backhand to great effect. Third-seeded Simona Halep is playing No. 5 Elina Svitolina on Court Suzanne Lenglen.

After being bageled just one time in his Grand Slam career before this tournament, it was the second time in this French Open Nishikori dropped a set 6-0.

Novak Djokovic is out of the French Open.

Thiem will next face Rafael Nadal in the semifinals.

"I think he was able to take all the opportunities he had, especially at key moments in the match".
