Pammachio Corsino | 14 Giugno, 2017, 04:26

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".

The 30-year-old said: "It was obviously an important win for me and a big match because Juan, when he's playing well, is one of the best players in the world".

Both players then had set points in an epic tie-break before Murray eventually edged it 10-8, and it proved decisive for the remainder of the match. Whoever won that set had momentum.

What is Murray's record against Del Potro?

He called for umpire Carlos Bernardes to check and stood for a good minute leaning on the net with head in hands after Bernardes admitted he could not see the mark and stuck with the line judge's call.

The second set followed in much the same fashion, the pair trading blows as Murray began to creep ahead.

From 3-5, Murray was able to rally and take the first set to a tiebreak where he won it 7-6 (8) after Del Potro sent a forehand wide on set point in what ended up being a thriller first set.

- World number one Andy Murray says being drawn against Juan Martin Del Potro in the third round forced him to raise his game.

Del Potro has played a light schedule as he focuses on looking after his body but he was a doubt for the tournament because of back and shoulder injuries and struggled with a groin problem on Thursday.

This time Murray made no mistake and took the set with his fourth ace of the match.

But while the popular Del Potro will be best remembered for helping injured opponent Nicolas Almagro in his previous match, the good news is that he's bolstering his game. With some exquisite returning and acutely angled groundstrokes, Murray raced through the final set and into the fourth round.

He knew the opener was key in the slow, heavy conditions and by the third set, he was on the ropes, winning just 11points. Sports. "And now I know his game a lot, but I need to be in good shape and physically be stronger to hold a long match if we play a long match, long rallies".

"I'm starting to feel better. But each day I'm feeling a little bit better".

Del Potro, playing Paris for the first time in five years due to wrist surgery recovery interruptions, failed to take any of the four set points he had in the opening set.

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