Murray beats Khachanov in straight sets

Kei Nishikori has been battling an inflamed wrist brushed off a ragged opening round victory over Thanasi Kokkinakis

Murray became the 15th man with 650 tour-level match wins.

The world No 1 moved purposefully into the last eight of the French Open, disposing of Karen Khachanov 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 and looking every inch the player with his sights focused on the sharp end of the tournament.

He said: "It was a awful tragedy in London, also in Manchester".

When the moment came, Murray took the mic, ignored the tennis and asked everyone to join with him in sending their thoughts and prayers to those in London, Manchester, Paris and everywhere in the world who had been affected by the terrorist atrocities of recent months and years.

Nishikori, who has won just two of 10 matches against Murray, added with a smile: "I mean, always, you know, when we play, it's always a battle".

Was Raikkonen sacrificed for Vettel?
Reports say the strategy was planned by Ferrari to get their leading driver into the lead but the team denied that was the case. I would feel the same", Vettel added. "But there were no team orders".

Murray was barely tested in the fourth round, beating 21-year-old Karen Khachanov 6-3, 6-4, 6-4.

Nishikori, a beaten quarter-finalist in Paris in 2015, has now made the last eight of a Slam for the seventh time, a record for a Japanese man.

Third seed Wawrinka is yet to drop a set and ended France's hopes for another year with a 7-5 7-6 (9/7) 6-2 victory over Gael Monfils.

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.

He said, after the match: I think today was probably the best I have played overall. "I served well and opened up the court", said Halep. The Romanian on Tuesday will fight for a place in the semi-final against world No.6 Svitolina.

Cilic flies under the radar all the way to last eight
In the last eight Wawrinka will face seventh seed Marin Cilic , who has breezed through the draw so far. Suarez Navarro dropped her opening service game in the second set but broke back in the next game.

Pliskova reached the French Open quarterfinals for the first time with a 2-6, 6-3, 6-4 win over Cepede Royg.

However, Martic, bidding to become only the 10th qualifier to make the last eight in Paris threw away a golden chance for victory.

"Wish him all the best in the future and I am committed to go after my goals with current team". In the women's quarterfinals, former No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki meets 19-year-old Jelena Ostapenko, and No. 13 Kristina Mladenovic faces No. 30 Timea Bacsinszky.

After experiencing a five-set thriller in the third round dalayed by the rain, the eighth-seeded Nishikori regrouped himself and came back from one set down to see off Fernando Verdasco 0-6, 6-4, 6-4, 6-0.

After a torrid build-up to the tournament when he could not buy a victory followed by scratchy four-set victories in the opening two rounds, Murray has timed his return to form perfectly, taking down former U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro in straight sets, then ousting Khachanov. "After 6-0 down I knew I had to change something".
