Murray regroups to beat Nishikori

10 Juin 2017

"I have never seen anyone get a warning after they have missed the ball toss", a puzzled Murray said. I think I'm playing well.

'We can't tell, as players, how long we are taking.

Austria's Dominic Thiem, who knocked out Djokovic in the quarter-finals, faces nine-time victor Rafael Nadal in the other semi-final.

"It felt to me like it was a odd decision". "Today (he) was maybe more erratic than usual, but I do think a little bit of that was to do with the conditions being hard". It was just today it was just unusual how it came about, because it was after the very first game of the match.

Wawrinka, the third seed, booked a place in the quarterfinals for the fourth time with a comfortable 7-5, 7-6 (9/7), 6-2 win over Gael Monfils, the last French player in the men's draw.

Murray got a taste of the Nishikori's stylish shot-making in the first set, then saw Nishikori carelessly give points away in the second set, disintegrate completely after forcing a third-set tiebreaker and lose six straight games despite securing an early break in the fourth set.

But once Ivan Lendl's pupil Murray settled into the match, he used his greater reach to stymie Nishikori's attempts to strike winners and managed to gut out the victory in breezy conditions. Wawrinka is into the semis for the third straight year and won the second of his three Grand Slam titles at Roland Garros in 2015.

He further backed Murray to beat Japan's Kei Nishikori in Wednesday's quarter-final clash. Both semifinals matches will prove to be highly competitive at the 2017 French Open.

Second seed Karolina Pliskova was another big name who had trouble with an outsider, as she needed all three sets available to overcome Veronica Cepede Royg.

Reds batter Gennett belts 4 homers in rare Major League Baseball feat
He becomes just the 17th player all-time to belt four homers in a game, and the first to do it with the five hits and 10 RBI. The Reds knocked Wainwright out in the fourth with a two-out rally that started with Hamilton's infield second to second.

Swiss Timea Bacsinszky was a set up on France's Kristina Mladenovic when play was suspended just before 3.30pm Paris time.

She only needed one, winning with a crosscourt forehand victor.

"I was missing a little more in the end than earlier in the match".

Svitolina won the first set 6-3 and raced into a 5-1 lead in the second before Halep bounced back and took the second 7-6 (6).

Wawrinka, then the defending champion, was beaten 6-4 6-2 4-6 6-2 in 2016 before Murray lost to Novak Djokovic in the final - the Serbian completing a career grand slam in the process.

The Portuguese official has also had a run-in with Novak Djokovic. He scorched Marin Cilic to become the oldest Roland Garros men's singles semifinalist since 1985.

Nadal takes on Spanish pal - Rafael Nadal has dropped just 20 games in four rounds at Roland Garros as he inches smoothly towards a 10th title.

This, we must remember, was the first time Busta had reached the quarters of a major after a fantastic clay-court season.

The second-seeded Djokovic had two set points in the opener but couldn't convert either.
