Murray downs Del Potro to storm last 16

Murray downs Del Potro to storm last 16

Andy Murray fought off four set points in the opener grinding through the unsafe Juan Martin del Potro, 7-6 (8), 7-5, 6-0, to reach the Roland Garros fourth round.

1515 hrs IST: Cornet is already 5-2 up against Radwanska and if you think that was impressive enough, Cilic has raced off with the first set 6-1 against Feliciano Lopez.

Murray leads the 29th-seeded Del Potro 6-3 in head-to-head matches, but this is their first meeting in a major since Murray's win at the U.S. Open quarterfinals in 2008.

The third-round match between a pair of past major champions was much tighter than the straight-set scoreline might indicate. "And the first set was very, very important, I think, for the rest of the match".

"He took the little chance to win both (of the first two) sets, Del Potro reflected".

Fognini briefly rallied in the third set for three break points in the sixth game.

Anderson twice recovered from a set down to advance 6-7 (6/8), 7-6 (7/4), 5-7, 6-1, 6-4 in just under four hours in a duel between two players born in Johannesburg.

The world No 1 might have expected to play John Isner in a repeat of last year's last-16 clash, but instead will face 21-year-old Russian Karen Khachanov. There was things I did today, that if I can do them consistently well over the next week or so, then I could do really well.

He retrieved it when Murray served for the set in the 10th game before handing the advantage straight back.

In a nice feat for hosts France, three of its women have made it to the last 16 for the first time in 23 years.

She won the next point to set up a match point, but wasted it when her drop shot sank into the net. Whoever had won that first set had big momentum.

Martic is ranked 290th but she took just 49 minutes to beat the Latvian and match her best performance at a Grand Slam tournament.

He wasted three of them serving at 5-4 up, and three more when serving at 7-6.

He finally won with a forehand volley at the net, with Raonic near the back of the court.

He was referring to the way Murray constantly kept him on the move and worked out a way to neutralise what is arguably the biggest forehand in the game. "And, of course, if you win, you enjoy more".

There were quite a few "shushing" gestures as he set about his task, although he played down the usual debate about the complex weave of his body language.
