Murray hobbles to victory over Berrer, but will face Troicki on Monday.


Andy Murray suffered an injury scare as he moved through to the last 16 of the French Open. Murray’s thrashed German Michael Berrer 6-2 6-3 6-2 at Roland Garros on Saturday, but twisted his ankle during the second set and required lengthy treatment. When play resumed, Murray quickly wrapped up victory, but how he recovers in the build-up to Monday’s fourth-round clash with Viktor Troicki will be key to his chances of progressing further.

Serbia’s Viktor Troicki lies in wait for Andy Murray in the fourth round of the French Open. Troicki booked his place in the last 16 at Roland Garros with a four-set win over the dangerous Alex Dolgopolov. The 15th seed overcame the loss of the second set to post a 6-4 3-6 6-3 6-4 victory on Saturday. Troicki’s most consistent tennis won the day – he hit just 23 unforced errors to his opponent’s 56, rendering winner count of 68-37 in Dolgopolov’s favour irrelevant.

The fourth-round match between Murray and Troicki will take place on Monday.
