Murray fights back to reach French Open semi-finals, to meet Wawrinka

Murray fights back to reach French Open semi-finals, to meet Wawrinka”

As a result of the downpours, all four men's quarter-finals will be played on Wedneday with Andy Murray against Kei Nishikori and Stan Wawrinka facing Marin Cilic.

Third seed and 2015 champion Stan Wawrinka made the last eight defeating Gael Monfils 7-5, 7-6 (7), 6-2.

Nishikori has won just two of 10 matches against Murray, but can't remember beating the British player at the U.S. Open past year.

"I'm glad to go through in three sets", said the player, who has won 16 of his last 17 matches.

The good news was that he found a way to get over the line reasonably comfortably and will now hope to replicate last year's win over Wawrinka at the same stage, one of his best ever performances on clay.

For Khachanov, losing the match was always hard to bite: "It's never fun to lose a match, but I took a great experience from this match to play on the centre court", he said.

The 32-year-old Swiss took just 100 minutes to dispose of the 2014 US Open champion to reach the semi-final for a third time in a row.

Rohan Bopanna in mixed doubles final: India's Rohan Bopanna earned himself an opportunity to become only the fourth Indian to win a Grand Slam trophy by reaching the French Open mixed doubles final with partner Gabriela Dabrowski yesterday.

Andy Murray has admitted being "the odd one out" in the French Open semi-finals after arriving at Roland Garros "playing garbage".

The Scot will now face the tournament's 2015 victor Wawrinka, who beat Marin Cilic 6-3, 6-3, 6-1, in what is a repeat of last year's semi-final showdown which Murray won in four sets before losing to Novak Djokovic in the final.

Do you something awesome to share with the world?

"So it was important to stay there, to stay strong with myself, and I'm happy to get through this match". Then I lost a crucial break at the start of the second.

Murray played clean tennis, hitting 29 winners to just 14 unforced errors and converted on five of his nine break point chances.

"I didn't feel like I played great tennis today". Murray looks for his third grand slam final appearance since last season. "The fourth, I think it was ideal tennis I played".

"Well, obviously the way I turned the match around, it was not a good first set", Murray said.

Fourth round: No. 2 Karolina Pliskova beat Veronica Cepede Royg 2-6, 6-3, 6-4; No. 3 Simona Halep beat No. 21 Carla Suarez Navarro 6-1, 6-1; No. 5 Elina Svitolina beat Petra Martic 4-6, 6-3, 7-5; No. 28 Caroline Garcia beat Alize Cornet 6-2, 6-4.
