Luck and perfect tennis sends Nishikori to French Open QF

Luck and perfect tennis sends Nishikori to French Open QF”

Britain's Andy Murray celebrates winning his fourth round match against Russia Karen Khachanov in three sets 6-3, 6-4, 6-4, at the French Open tennis tournament at the Roland Garros stadium.

Cepede Royg, ranked 97 in the world, is only the second Paraguayan to make the fourth round of a major. "The fourth, I played ideal tennis".

The third seed from Switzerland was a break down in the opening set but played tighter when it mattered while Monfils, who had been struggling with injuries this season, looked suddenly out of sorts. Murray broke the Russian in the next game and completed victory in two hours and four minutes. Murray was seeing Khachanov's serves and forehands with relative ease and the younger man had too little tactical variation to adjust to Murray's outstanding defence.

With Murray leading 3-2 Khachanov turned up the power a notch to retrieve the break, only for the Scot to respond in kind in the following game. The Briton broke again and served out the second set, 6-4.

"I'm sure everybody will join me in sharing their thoughts and prayers with everyone who has been affected by this".

"I think today was probably the best I have played overall", Murray said.

"But I hit the ball pretty well for the most part".

He stated that "King Salman feels very strongly and, I can tell you, would love to see peace with Israel and the Palestinians". Trump also said that Iran should have thanked the US for the 2015 nuclear agreement, because it led to sanctions being lifted.

Khachanov was hoping to become the first player to reach the quarter-finals on his Roland Garros debut since Rafael Nadal in 2005. "But I gained some confidence and the fourth I think it was flawless tennis I played".

"It's never fun to lose a match, but I took a great experience from this match to play on the center court", he said. "[And] he's one of the best returners on tour".

Following the recent terror attacks in Manchester and London, Murray was asked about tennis' ability to promote more altruistic values.

Seven people were killed and as many as 48 were injured in a terrorist attack in London on Saturday (June 3), where three attackers drove a van into pedestrians on London Bridge before continuing to stab others at Borough Market in the capital city.

He'll take on No. 3 seed Stanislas Wawrinka, who ran out a 7-5, 7-6 (7), 6-2 victor against Gael Monfils, who was the last remaining French contender in the men's bracket at Roland Garros.

The third-seeded Swiss next plays No. 7 Marin Cilic of Croatia.

However, Murray held his nerve in a long baseline rally and once again answered straight back before a forehand shot into the tramlines from his eager opponent secured a quarter-final meeting against eighth seed Kei Nishikori, who exchanged bagels with Fernando Verdasco en route to a 0-6 6-4 6-4 6-0 win.
