World number one Andy Murray made a easy sweep of  Russian Karen Khachanov to march into the quarter finals of the French Open with a win a easy victory 6-3, 6-4, 6-4  on Monday.

Murray struggled hard to reach here, the momentum has helped him in establishing a win against Juan Martin del Potro with an assured display on Court Philippe Chatrier.

The 30-year-old Briton made only one unforced error in pocketing the opening set and although he did drop serve late in the second he broke back immediately to take complete control of his first meeting with the talented Russian.
The powerful 21-year-old Khachanov, playing in his third grand slam event, showed flashes of brilliance in the sunshine but not for long enough spells to worry Murray who is through to the quarter-finals for the seventh time.
