Murray Downs Del Potro in blockbuster match

Murray Downs Del Potro in blockbuster match

Del Potro is 3-6 against Murray all time, but has taken two of the last three matches from the top-seeded Murray. Meetings for quarterfinal spots include seven-time major champion Venus Williams against No. 30 Timea Bacsinszky, former No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki against 2009 French Open champion Svetlana Kuznetsova, and defending champion Garbine Muguruza against No. 13 Mladenovic.

When is Murray vs Del Potro and where can I watch it?

"I played some good matches at the beginning of the year, but definitely in the clay-court season, the second or third sets were the best I have played, for sure", he said.

The ATP is holding an end-of-season Next Gen tournament for the first time in November as a showcase for the best eight players aged under 21.

Simona Halep, the 2014 runner-up, said the torn ligament in her right ankle is no longer an issue and proved that by defeating 26th-seeded Daria Kasatkina of Russian Federation 6-0, 7-5.

The 35-year-old Lopez had beaten Cilic twice before on clay - his only wins against him - but never looked in contention on Court Suzanne Lenglen.

The second-seeded Pliskova hit 34 winners as she raced to a 7-5, 6-1 victory in 70 minutes.

'I think it's going to be a good match and good experience for me. The 18-year-old from California did so when play resumed Saturday and went a break up early in the third set.

Del Potro has played a light schedule as he focuses on looking after his body but he was a doubt for the tournament because of back and shoulder injuries and struggled with a groin problem on Thursday.

A grueling opener that in hindsight proved to be decisive saw Del Potro earn set points in three different games-returning at 5-3, serving at 5-4, and in the tiebreaker at 7-6 and 8-7. "I will try to prepare and to do my best".

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. There's no point in having a shot like that and not using it.

All remaining matches on Saturday will be put off until Sunday, the organizing committee announced around 7:15 p.m. local time.

And all in front of a Court Philippe Chatrier crowd who backed the popular Argentinian like he was representing them in the Davis Cup.

However, the Spaniard did receive two time violation warnings during the match from Carlos Ramos, the same umpire who incensed Novak Djokovic by enforcing a similar penalty in the Serbian's third-round victory over Diego Schwartzman.

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

Meanwhile, in the women's singles, Romania's third-seeded Simona Halep advanced to the fourth round, where she will compete with Spanish Carla Suarez for a place in the quarter-finals, reports Efe.
