Roland-Garros: Murray vise une 4e demi-finale d'affilée

08 Juin, 2017, 04:23 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

Après une préparation inquiétante sur terre battue, le finaliste sortant vient de remporter son quatrième match de suite, autant que lors de ses trois précédents tournois à Rome, Madrid et Barcelone.

Tout en contrôle, Andy Murray n'a jamais tremblé face au Russe de 21 ans, tombeur la semaine dernière de Tomas Berdych et John Isner, et qui disputait son premier 8e de finale en Grand Chelem.

"Ses premiers mots, après le match, l'Écossais les a adressés aux victimes des récents attentats de Londres et Manchester".

Le N.1 mondial Andy Murray a renvoyé lundi l'espoir russe Karen Khachanov (53e) à ses études en s'imposant 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 et accède pour la septième fois aux quarts de finale de Roland-Garros. "Mes pensées et mes prières, comme les vôtres j'en suis certain, vont vers les victimes", a affirmé le N.1 mondial. En reprise après plusieurs semaines difficiles, le Britannique tentera de confirmer mercredi en quart de finale, face au vainqueur du match opposant Kei Nishikori (ATP 8) à Fernando Verdasco (37). Nishikori s'était déjà hissé parmi les huit derniers prétendants en 2015. Elle figure pour la première fois de sa carrière en quart de finale d'un tournoi majeur.

L'Espagnol, 33 ans, avait créé la première surprise du tournoi en éliminant le jeune Allemand Alexander Zverev, un des favoris après son titre à Rome. Cilic (28 ans) devient le premier Croate à rallier ce niveau de la compétition depuis l'édition 2006, où le pays des Balkans comptait deux représentants: Mario Ancic et Ivan Ljubicic.

Wawrinka s'est, lui, qualifié pour les quarts au détriment du dernier rescapé français, Gaël Monfils (16e), en trois sets (7-5, 7-6 (9/7), 6-2), et il n'a pas lâché la moindre manche depuis le début du tournoi. Cela ne l'a pas empêchée de franchir très facilement les tours à Roland-Garros, où elle n'a pas encore perdu un set en quatre matches.

Au prochain tour, Simona Halep retrouvera Elina Svitolina (no 5), victorieuse sur le fil de la revenante croate Petra Martic (WTA 290, ex 42e mondiale en 2012).
