Seeded Murray And Wawrinka Enter Quarter-Finals

Pammachio Corsino | 15 Giugno, 2017, 04:25

The world number one avoided the fate of Novak Djokovic - the man who beat Murray in the final at Roland Garros past year - who was accused of "tanking" in his defeat to Austria's Dominic Thiem earlier in the day, and the Scot will now face Swiss third seed Stan Wawrinka in the last four.

But Murray responded by taking the second set easily and stormed through a third-set tie-break before finishing off a tiring Nishikori to seal a fourth successive semi-final appearance in Paris.

Stan Wawrinka beat Marin Cilic 6-3 6-3 6-1 to advance into the Roland Garros semifinals for the third year in a row.

Twelve months after becoming the first man in 47 years to hold all four grand slam titles, Djokovic exited with a 7-6 (7/5) 6-3 6-0 loss to Thiem, while Nadal moved into a 10th French Open semi-final after Pablo Carreno Busta retired with an abdominal problem trailing 6-2 2-0. Past year he was also playing really well and I had to play one of my best matches on clay to beat him.

Elsewhere, Dominic Thiem stunned defending champion Novak Djokovic to set up a French Open semi-final against Rafael Nadal.

"He's a great player, a very smart tennis player".

"Everyone knows who remains in the draw", said Svitolina, who was two points from losing before coming back to beat 290th-ranked Petra Martic 4-6, 6-3, 7-5.

"It was quite windy so the timing was a little hard, but once I started getting into a better rhythm that made a big difference".

Murray had twice led by a break, at 3-2 and 6-5, but both times dropped serve immediately thereafter.

Today was a ideal match for me, I thought very well from the beginning.


"I came in playing garbage", Murray said.

He added that he thinks "quite probably" the semifinals will be No. 1 vs.

"I think Andy's done really well".

"How the players are supposed to know that in their head when we're playing at one speed throughout the whole year, and then you show up at the slams, you're expected to speed up by 5 seconds. I'm very happy to win today".

Nishikori said: "We have been playing so many times".

That match lasted almost four hours and also saw Nishikori drop a set to love.

Stan's obviously a big, strong guy, likes to go for his shots and he's obviously played really well in this tournament.

The quarterfinal match between fifth-seeded Elina Svitolina and No. 3 Simona Halep at the French Open is going into a third set.

"Paris has also had some problems too in the previous year or two".

"I am sure everyone will join me. we share our thoughts and prayers with everyone who has been affected".
