The match is set to begin at 4:30pm BST. Live coverage will be on ITV 4, British Eurosport or British Eurosport 2. Radio commentary, regular updates and live scores are available on Roland Garros' official website.


Murray sent Marinko Matosevic packing from the competition in the second round by beating the Australian, 6-3, 6-1, 6-3 in straight sets. The 27-year-old Scot needed 116 minutes to get his second victory over the 66th ranked right-hander to seal his place among the last 32 names in Paris.

Meanwhile, Kohlschreiber maintained his 100% record in this year's French Open after humbling Denis Istomin in the previous round. The German had earlier beaten Pere Riba in straight sets, and went on to achieve his second victory in five meetings against the 27-year-old Uzbek, 6-3, 7-6 (5), 6-2.

Murray is participating in this Grand Slam event for the seventh time in his career and will be looking to register only his 21st victory in Roland Garros soil.

The winner from this third round clash will be pitted against the winner between home hopeful, Richard Gasquet and 30-year-old Spaniard, Fernando Verdasco in the fourth round.


Murray trails 0-1 against Kohlschreiber in overall meetings. The pair have never faced each other in a Grand Slam event.

What They Say

Andy Murray: "It will be a very tough match for me. I played him once before on clay and I think I got three games. It will be very tough. He obviously won the tournament [in Dusseldorf] last week. He's not dropped a set here, I don't think. He's a very good player."

Phillip Kohlschreiber: "If he's fit and mentally strong, he's unbelievably tough to play. He's a very solid player. He's a big fighter. You're going to work very hard for the points. Obviously I'm also on a very nice run at the moment, so it's the best chance at the moment to play against the big guys. For sure he's the favourite in this match, but I'm going to try everything and fight from the first to last point. I'm going to enjoy this match."
