Halep, Svitolina advance to French Open quarters

Cahill, who has worked with Andre Agassi, Andy Murray and Lleyton Hewitt among others, told the Romanian he wanted a break after she repeatedly got down on herself during a defeat to Johanna Konta at the Miami Open.

"Obviously it's a awful tragedy in London", Murray, who recorded his 650th career win, told the crowd.

"Each match I feel like I played better", said Murray, who lost in last year's final. "(I have) come a long way the last ten days or so". The 53rd-ranked Khachanov made 38 unforced errors, compared to only 14 for Murray. Despite suffering a bagel - or 6-0 set - for the second straight day, the Japanese baseliner rallied to beat Fernando Verdasco 0-6 6-4 6-4 6-0.

Losing a set in the first round, almost taken to five sets in the second and playing two sets that could have gone either way against Juan Martin del Potro on Saturday - he won them both - men's No. 1 Andy Murray got some respite, Monday.

Runner-up to Maria Sharapova at Roland Garros in 2014, Halep plays Svitolina on Wednesday for a place in the semi-finals.

Though the Romanian led 6-5 in the overall head-to-head between the two coming into the match, she had never previously beaten the Spaniard on clay.

Halep, the 2014 runner-up, is one of the favourites to win the title in Paris and swept aside her 21st-seeded opponent in exactly one hour.

Paris - Simona Halep admitted Monday she was "ashamed" that her on-court behaviour prompted respected coach Darren Cahill to call a temporary halt to their partnership. So I think when I finished Stuttgart, he said he saw enough and he's ready to come back.

Ukraines Svitolina dug deep to produce her best tennis in adversity, beating Croatian qualifier Martic 4-6, 6-3, 7-5, while Halep ensured a resounding 6-1, 6-1 victory.

But Svitolina, who needed treatment on her back at the start of the third set, broke and soon won on her second match point, when Martic hit a backhand into the net. I hope I will recover from my injury, ” said the fifth seed, who received on-court treatment on her lower back at the beginning of the decider.

"I think the crowd today was a little bit obviously tough for me", Muguruza said.

“I made a decision to give everything I had and stay strong mentally.
