Wawrinka, who could play Murray in the semi-finals, had to have treatment to his lower back during his 7-5 7-6 (9-7) 6-2 win on Court One, which ended French hopes of a first male champion since 1983.

On a blustery day in Paris, Murray struggled to find his rhythm the way he had in his previous matches at the tournament, but eventually overcame the Japanese eighth seed in four sets, winning 2-6 6-1 7-6 (7-0) 6-1.

World No. 1 Andy Murray made short work of unseeded Russian Karen Khachanov yesterday to reach the French Open quarter-finals with a 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 victory.

Unlike Nishikori, Murray has not forgotten their US Open quarter-final past year and is looking to make amends for one that got away.

All the men's quarter-finals will be played on Wednesday after the matches between Rafael Nadal and Pablo Carreno Busta and Novak Djokovic and Dominic Thiem were rained off on Tuesday.

This match is a toss-up in my eyes, as Wawrinka does have the edge on clay and is playing better tennis overall, but it's tough to bet against Murray and that defense.

"I was frustrated about it, but I don't know how much impact that had on the match", Murray said.


Newsmen report that the three-time Grand Slam champion cruised to a 6-3 6-3 6-1 win against the Croatian in an hour and 40 minutes.

Wawrinka, who won at Roland Garros in 2015, will face either top-ranked Andy Murray or No. 8 Kei Nishikori.

Do you something awesome to share with the world?

The other quarterfinal set up on Monday will see third-seed Stan Wawrinka take on seventh-seed Marin Cilic. Murray went ahead two times, but each time Nishikori fought back.

"He played very well (against Khachanov) and he's playing better and better". "You know, after that 3-0 down in fourth set, the delay gave me a little bit of luck". Wawrinka has won nine straight matches on clay court. But, yeah, a little bit gained some confidence during second and third.

"He's a great player, a very smart tennis player". On the bottom half, No. 2 Djokovic, the defending champion, and No. 4 Nadal, seeking a record-extending 10th title in Paris, would set up a showdown in the semifinals with one victory apiece today.
