Top seed Murray into French Open quarter-finals, Nishikori also through

However, she admitted she had a back niggle ahead of her match with Petra Martic on Monday. "I was really happy to come back in the second set".

Cepede Royg, ranked 97 in the world, is only the second Paraguayan to make the fourth round of a major. She served out the match at love. But she missed a backhand, then put her hands on her hips and rolled her eyes. In another quarterfinal, Pliskova meets No. 28 Caroline Garcia, a 6-2, 6-4 victor against Alize Cornet in a match between two Frenchwomen. The third seed hasn't dropped a set either in making the last eight for the third straight year and is full of confidence after arriving in the French capital fresh off his first title of the season in Geneva.

- Caroline Garcia defeated Alize Cornet 6-2 6-4 in an all-French fourth-round encounter.

Top-seed Andy Murray and number-three Stan Wawrinka moved into the quarterfinals with straight-set victories today.

Murray largely dispensed with the lapses that accompanied his first two matches as he maintained the momentum established in beating Juan Martin Del Potro with an assured display on Court Philippe Chatrier.

"I was expecting a very tough game", said Halep, the 2014 French Open runner-up.

"I played a poor game in the third set to get broken, played a couple of bad shots, so I said to myself in the next game to be a little bit smarter and get back to the tactics that were winning me the match and I managed to do that. Sorry that I don't remember much".

The third-seeded Wawrinka, the French Open champion in 2015, will face 15th-seeded Gael Monfils. Tuesday, June 6, 2017. The Swiss goes on to face Croatian seventh seed Marin Cilic for a spot in the semi-finals.

Air Forces Central Command, Combined Air and Space Operations Center (CAOC), and the 379th Air Expeditionary Wing of the USAF. On Tuesday, Qatar Airways announced it had chartered three flights to evacuate passengers stranded in Saudi Arabia.

Anderson retired against Cilic with a leg injury.

Cilic was leading 6-3, 3-0 on Court Suzanne Lenglen when Anderson quit.

With chief threats Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Dominic Thiem lurking on the other half of the draw, Murray's potential path to the final is favourable with third seed Stan Wawrinka seemingly the biggest obstacle.

Murray will next play eighth-seeded Japanese Kei Nishikori, who recovered to beat Fernando Verdasco of Spain 0-6, 6-4, 6-4, 6-0 in the fourth round. And while that may be ludicrous to say of a three-time Grand Slam victor and world No. 1, he was written off by plenty before a ball was struck at this French Open.

The only British man to win the French Open is Fred Perry, in 1935. He made 14 unforced errors, easily his lowest mark of the tournament.

This marks Murray's seventh overall trip to the round of eight at Roland Garros. I mean, so many people there, trying to have a good time in what's obviously a very hard time just now. Agassi has left Paris already, but the defending champion is firmly in the hunt for a 13th Grand Slam title. "I served well and opened up the court", said Halep. Coming into the day, Halep had been 0-4 in her career against Suarez Navarro in clay-court matches (6-1 on all other surfaces). "Probably that and the drop shot are two of the shots I never practice, really".

That risky approach paid dividends as she hit a crosscourt forehand victor then a backhand down the line to break for 5-2 in the decider.

Having started the French Open harbouring significant doubts about his form, Murray has played himself into familiar territory.
