Andy Murray pays tribute to London terror victims after Paris win

Andy Murray feels his game is coming together after beating Karen Khachanov to set up a French Open quarter-final with Kei Nishikori. The third-seeded Swiss, the French Open champion in 2015, took on 15th-seeded Gael Monfils.

World number one Murray, the runner-up in Paris to Novak Djokovic in 2016, brushed aside Karen Khachanov of Russian Federation 6-3, 6-4, 6-4.

Wawrinka is through to the last eight at Roland Garros for the fourth time after ending French hopes of a first men's singles champion in Paris since 1983.

"I think today was probably the best I have played overall", said the top seed, who will face eighth seed Kei Nishikori in the quarter-finals.

"I think I played the best match here in Roland Garros", Halep said.

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

The powerful 21-year-old Khachanov, playing in his third grand slam event, showed flashes of brilliance in the sunshine but not for long enough spells to worry Murray who is through to the quarter-finals for the seventh time. The 53rd-ranked Khachanov made 38 unforced errors, compared to only 14 for Murray.

The Japanese star recovered from a terrible start to beat veteran Spaniard Fernando Verdasco 0-6, 6-4, 6-4, 6-0 in the French Open fourth round to reach a seventh Grand Slam quarter-final. "Very solid off both wings, unsafe off both wings, and moves quick", Murray added.

On the women's side, second seed Karolina Pliskova had to rally for a 2-6, 6-3, 6-4 victory against Veronica Cepede Royg.

Stan Wawrinka faced a tougher challenge in 15-seed Frenchman Gael Monfils, but he managed to hold on for a straight-set win of his own.

"It's never fun to lose a match", Khachanov said. But the Romanian took care of that problem yesterday, routing Spain's Suarez Navarro 6-1, 6-1 on Court Philippe Chatrier.

"I was expecting a very tough game", said Halep, the 2014 French Open runner-up.
