Murray survives sloppy del Potro

Murray survives sloppy del Potro

With some exquisite returning and acutely angled groundstrokes, Murray raced through the final set to set up a fourth-round clash with either American 21st seed John Isner or Russian Karen Khachanov.

After searching for consistency in his opening two matches, Murray found something approaching his best form to win the most anticipated match of the first week.

Meanwhile, in the women's singles, Romania's third-seeded Simona Halep advanced to the fourth round, where she will compete with Spanish Carla Suarez for a place in the quarter-finals, reports Efe. We also had one in Manchester only six or seven days ago. The following year, Halep reached the final.

"It's obviously something that has affected large parts of Europe. I appreciate everyone still coming out to support the tennis and creating a fantastic atmosphere". Garcia is still just 23 and won the French Open doubles title previous year with - get this - partner Kristina Mladenovic, who is still in contention in singles and who could be the final opponent for the victor of the Garcia-Cornet match.

Wozniacki missed the 2016 French Open because of an ankle injury.

Paris - Juan Martin del Potro hailed French Open conqueror Andy Murray for playing like a "real No. 1" as he slipped to a straight sets loss at the hands of the British star on Saturday. Wozniacki also broke in half of Kuznetsova's 12 service games. Murray has won almost $60 million in prize money - which is about 60 times more than Khachanov. The Scot has been struggling for the most of 2017, winning just one title so far but he seems to have improved his game for the second Grand Slam of the year.

Chelsea's Belgium worldwide star Eden Hazard has fractured his ankle, the Belgian football federation confirmed late Sunday. Previously, we talked about PSG (Paris St Germain), now about Real, next year it will be a different club.

It was quickly apparent that Khachanov's power would take some getting used to, as the Russian drew gasps from the crowd for both forehands and backhands. The next came at 5-4, but he netted a backhand, then double-faulted to grant a break point that Murray claimed with a forehand victor. That blunts the glaring edge Wawrinka holds in the crucial second-serve-points-won department, 63 to 53 percent.

Murray was encouraged by his on-court thinking during his first three matches here.

Murray would not relinquish this chance, easing through to a two-set lead and moving 2-0 up in the third. "If I play like I did in the last two sets [against Del Potro], then there is no reason why I can't win a few more matches". "I was starting to play a bit better towards the end of the set".

Wawrinka's biggest difficulty was that his lower back locked up on him early against Monfils. It was pretty windy out there. "Paris has had its problems too in recent years", said Murray.

"Each match I feel I played better". "I have hit the ball cleaner and started to hit the right shots at the right moments". A day before, he had put up a frighteningly dominant display losing just one game in the a brutal demolition of Georgia's Nikoloz Basilashvili.
