Emotional Andy Murray sails into quarter-finals with a straight sets win

Emotional Andy Murray sails into quarter-finals with a straight sets win

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

"It is something which has affected large parts of Europe and all over the world". He's great player. A very smart tennis player. "I appreciate everyone still coming out to support the tennis".

"I lost my mind in the first set", Nishikori said.

A brilliantly timed forehand victor off Khachanov's serve brought up break point, before Murray's trademark defence forced the Russian to go wide and surrender serve.

Murray, who admitted the windy conditions in Paris were hard, felt he stepped up to another level against Khachanov. "I couldn't do anything first set but I tried to play deeper and more aggressive, and little by little I got better today. I've hit the ball cleaner and started to see the right shots at the right moments". "Yeah, I've come a long way the last 10 days or so".

If you prefer Apple Maps to Google Maps while driving, iOS 11 will introduce speed limits as well as lane guidance warnings. But if this is something that you just have to have now, then here's how you can do it, as the process is pretty simple.

In his seventh Paris quarterfinal, Murray will face Japanese eighth-seed Kei Nishikori who defeated Fernando Verdasco of Spain 0-6 6-4 6-4 6-0. But still it was really, really tough battle.

"That's been good the last few matches and I'm happy with where my game's at".

With the win, Murray completed his 650th Tour level victory and will face Kei Nishikori in the quarter-finals of the French Open 2017.

"It was a mental challenge, it's never easy to play Gael in Paris", Wawrinka said.

"It was windy, tough conditions. They gave me the energy to fight".

Dozens dead after gunman storms Manila casino

All four of the day's fourth-round matches pitted one woman who has won at least one major trophy (Muguruza, Venus Williams, Svetlana Kuznetsova and Samantha Stosur) against a woman who has not.

Seventh-seeded Marin Cilic advanced to the quarter-finals for the first time after Kevin Anderson retired during the second set of their fourth-round match.

Women's No. 3 seed Simona Halep only needed one hour to get past Carla Suarez Navarro 6-1, 6-1, while her opponent in the quarter-finals Elina Svitolina had to bounce back from the brink of an elimination to beat Petra Martic 4-6, 6-3, 7-5.

In a late evening match played Sunday, defending champion Novak Djokovic eased into the quarterfinals outclassing clay court specialist Alberto Ramos-Vinolas 7-6 (7-5), 6-1, 6-3. "I sill feel the ankle some times but I am able to run".

"Wish him all the best in the future and I am committed to go after my goals with current team".

Hull City linked with former Russian Federation boss Leonid Slutsky
A good friend of Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich, Slutsky hung around the Blues for much of their triumphant 2016-17 Premier League campaign.

Martic, ranked 290th in the world after a 10-month injury layoff a year ago, was two points from victory at 5-2, 30-0 on her opponent's serve, but Svitolina unleashed a barrage of winners to claim 20 of the last 26 points.
