Garcia sets up all-French 4th round in Paris

Garcia sets up all-French 4th round in Paris

The loss of the opening set seemed to deflate Del Potro, and Murray won 7-6 (8) 7-5 6-0 to advance to the fourth round at Roland Garros. That set was gone and, soon enough, his first appearance since 2012 at Roland Garros would be over entirely with a 7-6 (8), 7-5, 6-0 loss to Murray in the third round.

Murray prevailed in that meeting making history by defending his gold medal before del Potro gained a measure of revenge outdueling Murray in a four-hour epic in the Davis Cup semifinals last September as he carried Argentina to its first Davis Cup championship in history.

This time Murray made no mistake and took the set with his fourth ace of the match.

Those who stuck it out on Court Philippe Chatrier took the disappointment on the chin when they were told there would no more play, some still singing on the way out. The tactical side is very important for me.

The left-hander blasted 31 winners as he took just 93 minutes to dismiss Uruguayan 22nd seed Pablo Cuevas 6-2 6-2 6-3. But mentally I feel pretty good just now.

It was tough for Del Potro to accept having given so much to what the Eurosport pundit John McEnroe described as one of the best he has witnessed, but in that moment the match was nearly won and lost.

UK's May and Corbyn questioned by public on TV show
In another key exchange, Mrs May said she didn't know whether North Korea receives funding from the UK's foreign aid budget. Jeremy Corbyn's refusal to say he would push the nuclear button was "really spine-chilling", Boris Johnson has claimed.

Woakes, who could be struggling to be fit for the first Test against South Africa on July 6, said: "I don't want to set a target". Del Potro is, indeed, one of the best players in the world and should have been a member of the Big Five or Big Six club today, but for his long list of injuries.

"I played some good matches at the beginning of the year, but definitely in the clay-court season, the second or third sets were the best I have played, for sure", he said.

Equally impressive was 2014 US Open champion Marin Cilic, who charged into the round of 16 by dominating Spain's Feliciano Lopez.

Alize Cornet and Caroline Garcia booked an all-French contest in round of 16, as the former shocked No. 9 seed Agnieszka Radwanska 6-2, 6-1, while the latter saw off Hsieh Su-Wei of Chinese Taipei 6-4, 4-6, 9-7. He remained there for several seconds, delaying the court-sweepers' between-set duties.

The three-time Grand Slam title victor has not had a great season so far, particularly on the clay-court circuit leading up to the French Open, but he now has reached the fourth round for the eighth time in 10 appearances in Paris.

Trump, after House Panel Subpoenas, Backs Inquiry Into Obama Administration
President Donald Trump seized Nunes' subpoenas as an opportunity to tweet that the Obama administration had committed wrongdoing. Another senior committee aide said any subpoenas related to the unmasking issue would have been sent by committee Chairman Rep.

Del Potro wasted four set points in the opening set - including one off a double fault - before Murray went on to claim a 7-6 (10/8), 7-5, 6-0 victory to reach the fourth round.

"In the 5-4 game, I think he had set point and I had some game points, but then in the tiebreak, I had some chances but didn't get them".

"But it still was extremely complicated, because he was starting to return the balls better".

Joining Murray in the fourth round is 2015 champion Stan Wawrinka.

Pliskova faces Germany's Carina Witthoeft and Halep plays No. 26 Daria Kasatkina of Russian Federation.
