Murray happy to win ugly against Nishikori

20 Juin, 2017, 16:24 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

Should Murray improve on his 8-2 win record over Japan's Kei Nishikori in their scheduled quarter-final on Wednesday (7 June), only 2015 champion Stanislas Wawrinka or 2014 US Open victor Marin Cilic will stand between him and a place in the final.

"I'm glad to go through in three sets", said the player, who has won 16 of his last 17 matches. But I played one of my best clay-court matches to get the win.

Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic will look to set up a semi-final clash on Tuesday, with Nadal taking on Carreno Busta and Djokovic meeting Dominic Thiem.

In windy conditions Murray double-faulted to lose serve in the third game and Nishikori pinged a forehand victor past him to move 5-2 ahead before serving out the set. Grand Slams excite him. The Serbian tennis star is still in action at Roland Garros.

- Madrid Open champion Halep will play in the last eight at Roland Garros for the second time after finishing runner-up in 2014.

"It was flawless today, I'm very satisfied", said Wawrinka who will be playing in his third successive Roland Garros semi-final.

Do you something awesome to share with the world?

Dealing quite well with a swirling wind that other players complained about, Murray made only 14 unforced errors and broke the strong-serving Khachanov five times.

In the women's category, Halep defeated 21st-seeded C. Suarez Navarro of Spain 6-1, 6-1 and Garcia defeated fellow compatriot Alize Cornet 6-2, 6-4 in an all-French affair again on Philippe-Chatrier.

- Second seed Karolina Pliskova came back from a set down to claim a 2-6 6-3 6-4 win over Paraguayan Veronica Cepede Royg. "I think I'm playing better than past year". "He [Nishikori] was dictating all of the points in the first set".

'Hopefully I can take advantage of that and find solutions to beat him'. It's not always about how well that you play or, you know, the level that you play at.

Nishikori hit back by winning the first game of the fourth against serve, but it was one-way traffic thereafter as an increasingly assured Murray cruised to victory. "Rafa's had a great clay-court season, as has Thiem". I think a little bit of rushing too much, [and I was] too aggressive sometimes. On the bottom half, No. 2 Djokovic, the defending champion, and No. 4 Nadal, seeking a record-extending 10th title in Paris, would set up a showdown in the semifinals with one victory apiece today.
