Murray made it to the fourth round of the Roland Garros, which is also called the French Open, after defeating Philipp Kohlschreiber in a five-set thriller on Sunday. The world No 8 lost the first set 3-6 to the German, before winning the second and the third sets comfortably.

However, Kohlschreiber levelled the scores after the end of the fourth set, forcing the game to be decided in the final set. The fifth set ended 12-10 in Murray's favour as the 27-year-old kept his hope alive of winning the Roland Garros this year.

Meanwhile, Verdasco had not trouble in defeating his third round opponent Richard Gasquet. He won the match in straight sets 6-3, 6-2, 6-3 to seal a place in the fourth round of the ongoing Grand Slam event in Paris.

Verdasco has dropped two sets so far in this year's French Open, while his opponent Murray has dropped three sets. The winner of this clash will make it to the quarter-finals of the Roland Garros.


Murray has a comfortable 9-1 lead over Verdasco in overall meetings. The pair has met in three grand slam fixtures and the World No 8 has won on two occasions. Murray has a 4-1 lead over Verdasco in the last five meetings.

What They Say

Andy Murray: "I've played well on clay the last few weeks, that's for sure. This last match against Philipp could have been one of my best wins if I managed to close out the fourth set, because he's a very, very tough player. Hopefully I can keep improving, keep learning."

Fernando Verdasco: "My goal was to start at 200 per cent and try to at least keep the score level for a few games and then try to break him as soon as I can. So I think the match today went perfectly like I expected, and like I wanted it to be. I'm very happy. Now I will try to recover for tomorrow's match."
