Isner down one set in suspended French Open tennis match

Why does it matter?

'What's the big deal?' he asked. "I mean, I did all that I could, it wasn't my day", the Pole said. Nadal said. "The rest of the things (don't) matter".

"If you want to play well, you have to let players breathe a little".

What happens during the three or four seconds after a point ends is generally your reaction to winning or losing that point.

The world No 1 might have expected to play John Isner in a repeat of last year's last-16 clash, but instead will face 21-year-old Russian Karen Khachanov.

The Romanian will next face either No. 5 Elina Svitolina of Ukraine or Croatian qualifier Petra Martic. Indian fans can look forward to Purav Raja and Divij Sharan's men's doubles third round match. The players split the first two sets.

"I think she may have a grudge against us, so she's not ready to talk with me, so I don't think that it will be good to talk to her, because we are playing against each other".

Bellis has, too, and Wozniacki predicted a bright future for the 18-year-old from California.

After fighting back from two sets to one down to beat Diego Schwartzman in the third round, the defending champion was no doubt hoping for an easier evening. "I think he will have very few complaints, if any, of how he played". "I like that about her". Nishikori was in the lead against Chung when rain suspended their battle.

The 15th-seeded Monfils moved into the fourth round at the French Open for the seventh time. Murray will play against Khachanov or Isner, depending on who wins the match.

Stan Wawrinka reached the French Open quarterfinals for the fourth time after beating Gael Monfils 7-5, 7-6 (7), 6-2. "I started playing much quicker".

Their match will conclude tomorrow after rain in Paris delayed this evening's play.

The 28th-seeded Fognini, who comes with a reputation for having a fiery temper, briefly grumbled at the chair umpire moments later.

Verdasco, who opened the tournament toppling ninth-seeded Alexander Zverev, is through to the round of 16 for the sixth time in 14 appearances. Cornet won 6-2, 6-1.

His four-homer night more than doubled his season total to seven. "I think we're all exhausted of making excuses", Matheny said. Through his first four starts, the righty was just OK (for a rookie pitcher), posting a 2-2 record with a 5.89 ERA.

The 24th-seeded Gasquet stopped playing while trailing 4-3 in the third set.

The match was a rematch of last summer's Rio Olympic gold-medal match.

Former US Open champion Del Potro, whose ranking has slid after injuries, posed an unusually severe test for the third round and he began strongly. This was his first French Open since 2012 because of a series of operations on his left wrist.

He might have been 3-0 down in the second set but fought to limit Murray's advantage to one break and then got his reward when he levelled at 5-5.

"Well, now, it's pretty OK", Halep said about her ankle. "I like it a lot, but it's tough to talk". "I can run. I can slide everywhere". I was going to try and just get through the first round and hopefully feel better each day. "I can say I'm strong on court". The 2009 U.S. Open champion turned in a costly double-fault on his third set point.

A merciless Marin Cilic crushed Feliciano Lopez, 6-1, 6-3, 6-3. The opening set took 84 minutes, but Murray's game then lifted significantly after he failed to dominate the early part of the match.

Cilic was leading 6-3, 3-0 on Court Suzanne Lenglen when Anderson quit. But it still was extremely complicated, because he was starting to return the balls better.

ANDY Murray will measure himself against one of the best of the next generation in the fourth round of the French Open.

It was hard to know whether it was cause or effect, but Murray was broadly more calm than he has been for months, and spared his support box some of his more splenetic behaviour. If she had won that point, she would have served for the victory.

"It was a good one for me to get through. I feel so good on this center court".

He wasted three of them serving at 5-4 up, and three more when serving at 7-6.

Cornet has never been further than that in Grand Slam tournaments.

In what was deemed to be a blockbuster of a match, Great Britain's Andy Murray has stormed home to beat Argentina's Juan Martin Del Potro in straight sets at the Roland Garros.
