Paris: World number two Andy Murray has booked his place in the quarter-finals of the French Open for a record sixth time, after defeating American John Isner in straight sets in the men’s singles event here on Monday.
The British maestro produced a confident performance throughout the match as he eased past his American opponent 7-6 (11-9), 6-4, 6-3 in the fourth round contest at Roland Garros.
With the win, Murray has now set up a clash against France’s sole survivor at the tournament, Richard Gasquet, who has reached the quarter-finals for the first time in his 13 attempts.
Meanwhile, top-ranked Novak Djokovic will also aim to seal his place in the quarterfinals when he will take on Roberto Bautista Agut of Spain later today.
