Murray picks up speed at Roland Garros

World No.1 Andy Murray runs down a forehand during his 7-6 (10-8), 7-5, 6-0 victory against Juan Martin Del Potro of Argentina yesterday to move into the fourth round of the French Open.

The seventh-seeded Croat dropped his opening service game, and then won eight straight games to take complete control against Lopez.

Anderson twice recovered from a set down to advance 6-7 (6), 7-6 (4), 5-7, 6-1, 6-4 in just under four hours in a duel between two players born in Johannesburg. "I played some good matches at the beginning of the year, but definitely in the clay-court season, the second and third sets were the best I have played".

Del Potro, who beat Murray the last time they met at the Davis Cup in September a year ago, was struggling with a groin injury sustained in his last match but broke serve just three games in to take a 3-1 lead.

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

"I have never played a match against him, but I practised with him before he got on to the tour when he was like 350 (in the rankings), and he was really good". Juan Martin kicked off the match in a better fashion, breaking in game 3 for a 4-2 lead, and he had a set point in game 9 on return.

The 2014 U.S. Open champion next faces either Britain's Kyle Edmund or big-serving South African Kevin Anderson.

The unseeded Cornet was a surprisingly easy victor over No. 9 Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland, 6-2, 6-1, while No. 28 Garcia edged Hsieh Su-wei of Taiwan 6-4, 4-6, 9-7.

Manchester United launch £52.4m offer for Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata
Morata has more goals (20) than starts (19) for Madrid in 2016-17 and his goal ratio is better than any other player in the squad. However Belotti has around £85m on his release clause and pursuing him would not be a cheap deal.

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.

Djokovic sealed victory on his first match point with a cross-court victor struck firmly from near the net.

"You work all year for moments like this", said Cornet, who was tearful in her interview on court. I'm in the fourth round, and I will try to prepare and to do my best.

Andy Murray celebrates victory after his men's singles third round match against Juan Martin Del Potro during day seven of the French Open at Roland Garros.

Murray faced the Argentine in last summer's Olympic final in Rio, with the tie on that magical occasion going to four sets before the Brit eventually clinched gold to retain his title.

It was Del Potro's first trip to the French Open in five years, since he received a wrist in 2015 that crippled his playing.

And all in front of a Court Philippe Chatrier crowd who backed the popular Argentinian like he was representing them in the Davis Cup. The Frenchmen meet for the 14th time with Monfils 7-6 up. There is Alize Cornet v Agnieszka Radwanska, Stan Wawrinka v Fabio Fognini, Daria Kasatkina v Simona Halep, Hyeon Chung v Kei Nishikori and, of course, last but most certainly not least, Richard Gasquet v Gael Monfils.

Carina Witthoeft turned up late for her third round match against second-seeded Karolina Pliskova at the French Open.
