Au revoir!

I'm afraid that's our cue to say goodbye. Soz.

Head over to Sportsday to find out who comes out on top between Verdasco and Nishikori, plus the battle between 2015 champ Stan Wawrinka and home favourite Gael Monfils on Chatrier.

We'll be back tomorrow for the Nadal and Djokovic quarter-final matches. Cheerio!

...although we can't tell you anything definitively.

What we do know is Murray will play either Japan's eighth seed Kei Nishikori or Spanish veteran Fernando Verdasco in the quarter-finals.

That is down to a best-of-three over on Lenglen. Verdasco bagelled his opponent in the first set, but Nishikori has just levelled up by winning 6-4 in the second.

Rafa might have hogged most of the headlines so far at Roland Garros, but the rest are warming up nicely.

Stan Wawrinka and Dominic Thiem haven't lost a set yet either, while Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic are also grinding through the gears.

So what's next for Murray? We'll tell you...

Murray 6-3 6-4 6-4 Khachanov

Another landmark has been racked up by Andy Murray following that victory: his 650th Tour-level match win. The Scot is only the 15th man to reach this milestone.

Impressive stats.

Murray will be delighted to get through that one in straight sets, his defensive skills were as impressive as ever as he scrambled back some huge strikes from Khachanov, but the serve will please him just as much. It was partly down to the Russian's returning, but it can't have been often that Murray has won 75% of the points in his second serve. Just the kind of form to take into the last eight.

World number one Andy Murray: "It was a terrible tragedy in London and also in Manchester only a few weeks ago. Paris has had some problems in the last few years and I'm sure everyone will join me in sharing the fact that our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by this.

"It is something which has affected large parts of Europe and all over the world. I appreciate everyone still coming out to support us and I'm grateful that I can perform in front of you."

Andy Murray begins his on-court interview with some emotional words about the recent terror attacks in the UK...

Murray an underdog?

That's a great performance from Andy. He was really composed in the third set, and he's kind of the underdog, which is how he likes it.

He's felt pressure being the world number one and having a target on his back but people are talking of the resurgence of Djokovic and the incredible form of Nadal and that means he's going through a bit under the radar.

Murray 6-3 6-4 6-4 Khachanov

A warm hug between the pair at the net, Khachanov smiling as a very impressive debut Roland Garros comes to an end.

The 21-year-old Russian dispatched Tomas Berdych and John Isner, but Murray proved to be a step too far.

For the Brit it is a quarter-final appearance for a fourth successive year in Paris.

Game, set and match - Murray

Murray 6-3 6-4 6-4 Khachanov

"YES!"

Andy Murray's reaction to a forehand from the opposite side landing in the tramlines tells you what you need to know.

It's all over! Clinical stuff from the world number one against a young Russian worth keeping a beady eye on over the next few years.

First serve are the key for Murray here. Khachanov has had a bit of success on Murray's second serve in this set - well, relatively - and does so again in the opening point.

Muzza hits back with an ace, then scampers across the baseline to whack an inside-out forehand down the line for 30-15.

Another second serve for the Scot... Khachanov can't take advantage, batting a backhand long.

Two match points for Murray...

*Murray 6-3 6-4 5-4 Khachanov

And it is on again! Two break points for Muzza.

The pair become embroiled in a baseline rally, forehand to forehand, Khachanov losing his bottle first when he clunks a forehand into the net.

What did we tell you?! Murray to serve out for the match...

The last time Khachanov broke Murray's serve? Murray broke straight back. Just saying...

Khachanov breaks

Murray 6-3 6-4 4-4 Khachanov*

Two more holds, Andy, two more holds.

Murray laughs like he is sat at a Jimmy Carr gig when Khachanov puts away a forehand volley for 15-15. Don't think it was that funny...

Murray isn't laughing when he takes a volley in the chest after a net exchange, the Russian apologising rather quickly. No damage done.

Not physically at least, but mentally... Murray's head goes in the next point, setting up a break point.

The Russian has only had one previous break point - and he took it. His 100% record continues when Murray can't get a backhand back.

*Murray 6-3 6-4 4-3 Khachanov

Murray's defence is something else. I mean, how? The powerful Khachanov throws some missiles at the Brit, who is stood about a foot and a half behind the baseline, at 30-0. Muzza gets his bat to everything, until eventually he can't clear the net.

A forehand winner keeps Khachanov interested, but he looks up to the scoreboard as he returns to the receiver's end. It's not pretty.

After a mass exodus following the end of the second set - including Ivan Lendl slipping out briefly - the refreshed masses are returning for the business end of this set, and possibly the match.

Getting everyone to sit down for the resumption of play can be something of a test for the umpires here, although in New York it's hardly worth trying as everyone is on the move and chatting constantly. All part of the rich variety that makes up the Grand Slams.

Murray 6-3 6-4 4-2 Khachanov*

Backhand winner, backhand winner, backhand winner.

Andy Murray is turning into Bill Murray. It is Groundhog Day as the Brit goes 40-0 ahead.

Khachanov escapes the loop with a forehand winner, but Murray reasserts his authority in the next point.

*Murray 6-3 6-4 3-2 Khachanov

Aaah! As smooth as silk from Murray.

At 30-30, a drop-shot is reached by Khachanov, but Murray seeks further punishment by knocking a lob over his head. The Russian scurries back to retrieve it, only to see Murray waiting at the net to pat down a winner.

Chatrier claps its appreciation.

That gives the Scot hope of another break...not this time. A backhand wide and a Khachanov ace keeps him at bay.

'Khachanov has a bright future'

Dom Inglot

Great Britain Davis Cup player on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

Khachanov has got feel as well as power. Realistically with him the biggest hurdle will be whether he can stay disciplined and mentally focused throughout a match and not give away cheap points.

If he can, he has a bright future ahead of him.

Murray 6-3 6-4 3-1 Khachanov*

"Come onnnnn!" That's the loudest yelp we've heard from Murray today, and it comes after Khachanov pushes a forehand into the tramlines at 30-30.

That gives further encouragement to Murray, who hammers a service winner down the T to move halfway to the third set.

*Murray 6-3 6-4 2-1 Khachanov

I don't think it is much of a surprise that a calm and collected Andy Murray is able to breeze through matches. I mean, I'm not going to tell the world number one how to approach games but...just take it easy Andy.

Calm mind, calm body, and all that.

After being tetchy in his opening two matches at Roland Garros, the Scot has looked much more at ease against Delpo and now Khachanov.

The Russian tells Muzza that he's not going home in a hurry yet, a morale-boosting hold to love for the 21-year-old.

Fernando Verdasco is looking most likely to provide the quarter-final opposition for the winner of this match, having won the first set 6-0 against Kei Nishikori.

A Japanese media colleague did not sound confident before start of play. It is not Nishikori's wrist she was concerned about, but the back which needed treatment in his laboured five-set victory over Chung Hyeon in the fourth round.

Easy street?

Without wishing to count any poulet, Andy Murray's next opponent may become obvious quicker than we thought.

Over on the Suzanne-Lenglen court Fernando Verdasco has just taken the first set against Japanese eighth seed Kei Nishikori in 26 minutes.

Nishikori hit just two winners in the whole set.

Murray 6-3 6-4 2-0 Khachanov*

No drama from Andy Murray. He races 40-0 ahead, and although Karen Khachanov intrudes with a vicious volley for 40-15, the Brit seals the hold when his opponent whacks a stretching forehand into the net.

Bathroom break for Mr Lendl, as Murray moves into a two-set lead.

Murray's first serve has picked up from Saturday and he is playing very smoothly again.

He has a great chance now to get this done in under two hours.

Murray breaks

*Murray 6-3 6-4 1-0 Khachanov

Initially there isn't much resistance from the Russian... three break points for Murray.

They have come out of nowhere. Well, they come from a double fault sandwiched in-between two feeble forehands from Khachanov.

The world number 53 battles back to deuce, but can't handle the heat.

Another unforced error - this time from the backhand - means Murray makes the perfect start to the third set.

Right then. Murray in three? Or Khachanov to provide some resistance?

Piers Newbery

BBC Sport at Roland Garros

Khachanov's favourite player growing up was Marat Safin, and there are plenty of similarities with his fellow Russian - the slow swagger between points, the fiddling with the chain around his neck, and above all, a massive game.

His forehand is approaching Del Potro levels, while his backhand looks as big as any two-hander out there. He just needs to hit the ball in a bit more.

Murray 6-3 6-4 Khachanov

Excellent stuff from Andy Murray. He's been like a lasagna so far at Roland Garros. A bit sloppy at first when it comes straight out of the oven, becoming firmer and tastier as time goes on.

Maybe there will still be leftovers for Team Murray on Sunday...

Because Sunday is the final? Doesn't quite work that does it?! Ah well...

Game and second set - Murray

Murray 6-3 6-4 Khachanov

Is this a chance to peg Murray back? Khachanov goes 15-0 ahead with a wonderful forehand winner.

But Murray snatches the opportunity away quickly, an ace bailing him out on his way to two set points.

Khachanov can't provide any more resistance, drilling a forehand into the net.

Murray clenches his first, roars at his box and marches over to his seat for a well-earned glug of water.

*Murray 6-3 5-4 Khachanov

The big news during that game is that the BBC Sport office has discovered you can get a five pack of jammie doughnuts for 50p these days. Bargain.

What's happening in Paris? Karen Khachanov keeps this set alive with a gutsy hold. Murray sees an opening at 30-30 but the Russian slams the door shut with a sizzler of a backhand winner.

Over to you Andy...

Murray 6-3 5-3 Khachanov*

A little test for Murray as he picks up a couple of balls. He lost his serve last time remember.

No drama this time. The British number one races 40-15 ahead, the game going his way when Khachanov balloons a forehand way over the baseline.

This match might be the big news back home but for the locals it is very match the appetiser, before the main course of home favourite Gael Monfils up against former champion Stan Wawrinka.

That might be why there is no sense of the crowd wanting Khachanov to get back into this one, rather a contented hum of conversation and the odd collective gasp.

Even Ivan Lendl just broke cover by taking his sunnies off to clean them, which counts as showboating for him.

Murray breaks

*Murray 6-3 4-3 Khachanov

What we were saying before about the first rule of breaking serve (see 12:31)? Khachanov has forgotten it.

He lays the break on a plate for Murray with some sloppy backhands and then another double fault.

A first sign of frustration from Murray as he yells towards his box after missing the first break point.

He doesn't miss the second. The pressure is on Khachanov... second serve... Murray bides his time... the Russian's backhand again his undoing as he hits the net.

Khachanov breaks back

Murray 6-3 3-3 Khachanov*

Ah. Right on cue, Karen Khachanov breaks. The beach can wait. Or so he hopes.

Two unforced errors from Andy Murray bring up the Russian's first break point, can he take it?

Yes he can! Murray is scrambling on the baseline, and can only find the net with a forehand.

As you were...

Khachanov looks like he could be chilling on the beach. Retina-burning board shorts, tight violet tee, snapback baseball cap.

He might be slapping on the sun cream tomorrow if he doesn't hurry up...

Ukrainian fifth seed Elina Svitolina fought back from 5-2 down in the final set to end the run of world number 290 Petra Martic.

Svitolina, who needed medical treatment for a back injury, will face Romania's Simona Halep in the quarter-finals.

Some news from over the road on Lenglen...

*Murray 6-3 3-2 Khachanov

Talking of quick service games, Khachanov follows suit. Anyone who left Chatrier for a loo-break might end up missing half a set at this rate.

A service winner, followed by a cracker of a backhand, followed by an overhead gets the Russian back on the board.
