Murray reaches first French Open quarterfinal
Adjust font size:

Briton Andy Murray advanced to the quarter-finals of the French Open for the first time with a 7-5, 7-6 (4), 6-1 victory over Marin Cilic of Croatia Sunday.

While the opening two sets were tense exchanges of blows between in-form players, Murray dominated the third in which Cilic was treated by a trainer for right leg problems after taking a tumble while chasing a lob.

The world number three, having his first four-match winning streak on clay, will next play No. 12 Fernando Gonzalez of Chile for a semifinal berth.
