Murray Looks Strong Again; Loaded Sunday Schedule at French Open

Eventually Murray came through the first set 10-8 in an epic tie-break which left Del Potro slumped over the net with a mixture of disbelief and exhaustion.

Andy Murray produced arguably his best performance of the year to defeat Juan Martin del Potro and reach the fourth round of the French Open. "Andy, he's very smart on court", Del Potro said to Guardian reporters after losing. Murray jogged to his seat at the changeover, the Argentine stood at the net, bent at the waist, his head resting on the netcord.

It was Del Potro's first trip to the French Open in five years, since he received a wrist in 2015 that crippled his playing.

"I couldn't believe that set, that I lost that set, because I had many opportunities to win", del Potro said.

She led by a set but trailed in the second set.

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.

This time the Scot would make no mistake and crunched it out with his fourth ace of the match.

Del Potro's spirit was broken, and the vocal Paris crowd were quelled.

"I think that the relationship is not very good", said 27-year-old Cornet.

"Obviously from his reaction at the end of the first set, he was pretty disappointed", Murray said. The conditions today were very slow and heavy, so coming from behind in those conditions can be difficult, because it feels like you have to work very hard for every point. If I say something I get asked what I was saying, if I say nothing, you ask me why I don't say anything. It's not new. previous year I had some problems with my groin.

Romanian third seed and 2014 runner-up Simona Halep sealed her place in the fourth round with a 6-0, 7-5 win over Russia's Daria Kasatkina.

In the quest to win a Grand Slam tournament, sportsmanship can sometimes fall by the wayside for even the most well-to-do athletes in the game of tennis as the intensity ratchets up to the highest of levels. "I think he will have very few complaints, if any, of how he played".

Del Potro, 28, had taken the first set 6-3 before Almagro claimed the next by the same score.

A nine-time French Open champion and the hot favourite to win once again this year, Nadal breezed into the quarter-finals with a straight-sets thrashing of compatriot Roberto Bautista Agut, 6-1 6-2 6-2.

Croatian Marin Cilic, seeded seventh, beat Spain's Feliciano Lopez 6-1 6-3 6-3 and Spaniard Fernando Verdasco advanced after beating Uruguayan Pablo Cuevas 6-2 6-1 6-3.

Three third-round men's matches are scheduled to resume after rain cancelled play on Saturday afternoon: No. 8 Kei Nishikori against Hyeon Chung, No. 15 Gael Monfils against No. 24 Richard Gasquet, and No. 21 John Isner against Karen Khachanov.
