  1. Au revoir!

    I'm afraid that's our cue to say goodbye. Soz.

    Head over to Sportsday to find out who comes out on top between Verdasco and Nishikori, plus the battle between 2015 champ Stan Wawrinka and home favourite Gael Monfils on Chatrier.

    We'll be back tomorrow for the Nadal and Djokovic quarter-final matches. Cheerio!

  2. Post update

    ...although we can't tell you anything definitively.

    What we do know is Murray will play either Japan's eighth seed Kei Nishikori or Spanish veteran Fernando Verdasco in the quarter-finals.

    That is down to a best-of-three over on Lenglen. Verdasco bagelled his opponent in the first set, but Nishikori has just levelled up by winning 6-4 in the second.

  3. Post update

    Rafa might have hogged most of the headlines so far at Roland Garros, but the rest are warming up nicely.

    Stan Wawrinka and Dominic Thiem haven't lost a set yet either, while Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic are also grinding through the gears.

    So what's next for Murray? We'll tell you...

    Murray 6-3 6-4 6-4 Khachanov

    Another landmark has been racked up by Andy Murray following that victory: his 650th Tour-level match win. The Scot is only the 15th man to reach this milestone.

    Impressive stats.

    Murray will be delighted to get through that one in straight sets, his defensive skills were as impressive as ever as he scrambled back some huge strikes from Khachanov, but the serve will please him just as much. It was partly down to the Russian's returning, but it can't have been often that Murray has won 75% of the points in his second serve. Just the kind of form to take into the last eight.

  7. Post update

    World number one Andy Murray: "It was a terrible tragedy in London and also in Manchester only a few weeks ago. Paris has had some problems in the last few years and I'm sure everyone will join me in sharing the fact that our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by this.

    "It is something which has affected large parts of Europe and all over the world. I appreciate everyone still coming out to support us and I'm grateful that I can perform in front of you."

  9. Murray an underdog?

    That's a great performance from Andy. He was really composed in the third set, and he's kind of the underdog, which is how he likes it.

    He's felt pressure being the world number one and having a target on his back but people are talking of the resurgence of Djokovic and the incredible form of Nadal and that means he's going through a bit under the radar.

    Murray 6-3 6-4 6-4 Khachanov

    A warm hug between the pair at the net, Khachanov smiling as a very impressive debut Roland Garros comes to an end.

    The 21-year-old Russian dispatched Tomas Berdych and John Isner, but Murray proved to be a step too far.

    For the Brit it is a quarter-final appearance for a fourth successive year in Paris.

  11. Game, set and match - Murray

    Murray 6-3 6-4 6-4 Khachanov

    "YES!"

    Andy Murray's reaction to a forehand from the opposite side landing in the tramlines tells you what you need to know.

    It's all over! Clinical stuff from the world number one against a young Russian worth keeping a beady eye on over the next few years.

    First serve are the key for Murray here. Khachanov has had a bit of success on Murray's second serve in this set - well, relatively - and does so again in the opening point.

    Muzza hits back with an ace, then scampers across the baseline to whack an inside-out forehand down the line for 30-15.

    Another second serve for the Scot... Khachanov can't take advantage, batting a backhand long.

    Two match points for Murray...

  13. Murray breaks

    *Murray 6-3 6-4 5-4 Khachanov

    And it is on again! Two break points for Muzza.

    The pair become embroiled in a baseline rally, forehand to forehand, Khachanov losing his bottle first when he clunks a forehand into the net.

    What did we tell you?! Murray to serve out for the match...

    The last time Khachanov broke Murray's serve? Murray broke straight back. Just saying...

  15. Khachanov breaks

    Murray 6-3 6-4 4-4 Khachanov*

    Two more holds, Andy, two more holds.

    Murray laughs like he is sat at a Jimmy Carr gig when Khachanov puts away a forehand volley for 15-15. Don't think it was that funny...

    Murray isn't laughing when he takes a volley in the chest after a net exchange, the Russian apologising rather quickly. No damage done.

    Not physically at least, but mentally... Murray's head goes in the next point, setting up a break point.

    The Russian has only had one previous break point - and he took it. His 100% record continues when Murray can't get a backhand back.

  16. Post update

    *Murray 6-3 6-4 4-3 Khachanov

    Murray's defence is something else. I mean, how? The powerful Khachanov throws some missiles at the Brit, who is stood about a foot and a half behind the baseline, at 30-0. Muzza gets his bat to everything, until eventually he can't clear the net.

    A forehand winner keeps Khachanov interested, but he looks up to the scoreboard as he returns to the receiver's end. It's not pretty.

    After a mass exodus following the end of the second set - including Ivan Lendl slipping out briefly - the refreshed masses are returning for the business end of this set, and possibly the match.

    Getting everyone to sit down for the resumption of play can be something of a test for the umpires here, although in New York it's hardly worth trying as everyone is on the move and chatting constantly. All part of the rich variety that makes up the Grand Slams.

  18. Post update

    Murray 6-3 6-4 4-2 Khachanov*

    Backhand winner, backhand winner, backhand winner.

    Andy Murray is turning into Bill Murray. It is Groundhog Day as the Brit goes 40-0 ahead.

    Khachanov escapes the loop with a forehand winner, but Murray reasserts his authority in the next point.

  19. Post update

    *Murray 6-3 6-4 3-2 Khachanov

    Aaah! As smooth as silk from Murray.

    At 30-30, a drop-shot is reached by Khachanov, but Murray seeks further punishment by knocking a lob over his head. The Russian scurries back to retrieve it, only to see Murray waiting at the net to pat down a winner.

    Chatrier claps its appreciation.

    That gives the Scot hope of another break...not this time. A backhand wide and a Khachanov ace keeps him at bay.

  20. 'Khachanov has a bright future'

    Dom Inglot

    Khachanov has got feel as well as power. Realistically with him the biggest hurdle will be whether he can stay disciplined and mentally focused throughout a match and not give away cheap points.

    If he can, he has a bright future ahead of him.
