Murray downs Del Potro, French women feud

by Leon Thompson June 10, 2017, 7:07

The world No. 1 played one of his best matches since 2016, but it was rarely easy until he pulled away in the third set for the 7-6 (8), 7-5, 6-0 victory over Juan Martin del Potro. This was their 10th meeting (the first since that epic Davis Cup match in Glasgow) and 6th win for Andy who will now face John Isner or Karen Khachanov.It was the closest possible battle in the opening two sets and Andy managed to win both, leaving his rival with nothing more in the tank in the final set.

Andy Murray conveyed his delight at a much-improved performance against Juan Martin del Potro in the third round of the French Open.

Murray holds a 6-3 edge over the giant Argentine, notably downing Del Potro in a gruelling Olympic final a year ago to claim a second straight singles gold medal.

"I think it's going to be a good match and good experience for me".

Cornet reached the last 16 for just the second time with a 6-2, 6-1 win over Polish 9th seed Agnieszka Radwanska who lost all her 7 service games.

Andy Murray says he feels in a good place as he prepares to take on Karen Khachanov in the fourth round of the French Open.

6-1, 6-3 to reach the quarterfinals for the eighth straight year, Rafael Nadal eased past fellow Spaniard and 17th-seeded Roberto Bautista Agut 6-1, 6-2, 6-2 to also reach the quarterfinals, and Richard Gasquet retired from his all-French third-round match against Gael Monfils after getting treatment on his right thigh.

In a moment he may well rue, del Potro double-faulted off the tape bouncing his Wilson racket off the side of his head in frustration.

Later, Del Potro said, "I couldn't believe I lost that set", but added, "This happens when you play against the number one in the world".

Murray broke immediately at the start of the second set but missed the chance to lead 3-0 and Del Potro, who called the doctor on court for some painkillers, stalled the Scot's progress by recovering to 5-5.

"I thought I played some good tennis towards the end, but I expected a very tough match. Whoever won that first set had big momentum". I think all the people like my story.

Andy Murray had what appeared to be a hard third round encounter with Juan Martin del Potro but the Scotsman delivered on the big stage.

The No. 7 seed Marin Cilic secured a last 16 spot in a much more comfortable manner, as he overcame Feliciano Lopez 6-1, 6-3, 6-3 in one hour and 47 minutes.

He saved a set point at 4-5 and then another in a memorable 10th game, missing a sitter forehand before finally breaking back.

Anderson backed up his second-round upset of 18th-seeded Nick Kyrgios with a 6-7 (8), 7-6 (4), 5-7, 6-1, 6-4 conquest of Kyle Edmund.

Svitolina will next face third-seeded Simona Halep, the French Open runner-up in 2014.

She will now face Spain's Carla Suarez Navarro for a place in the quarter-finals after the number 21 seed claimed a 6-4, 6-4 win over Elena Vesnina of Russian Federation.

With Del Potro having admitted to suffering a groin injury in the last round, Murray was soon testing his court coverage out, hitting a drop shot with the first point of the match.
