  1. Post update

    Andy Murray

    It is goodbye for me and goodbye from him.

    Head over to Piers Newbery's report to get a balanced take on a match with more ups and downs than an episode of Sunset Beach.

    See you later.

  2. Murray into French Open semi-finals

    Murray 5-7 7-6 (7-3) 6-0 6-2 Gasquet

    Andy Murray also tells the crowd that he "perhaps" overplayed the drop-shot a little in the first couple of sets.

    I think that a quick review of the video would confirm that for certain for him.

  3. 'Fun' tennis

    Andy Murray reaches French Open semi-finals

    "There was some great tennis," Andy Murray says during his on-court interview. 

    "There were some fun points to watch - drop shots and plenty of variety. We both had our chances and it was important to win the second. It would have been tough to come back."

    What does he make of facing defending champion Stan Wawrinka next? 

    "Stan's played great tennis and is the defending champion. It's going to be extremely tough. We haven't played each other for a while. Hopefully I can play my best and reach my first final here."

  4. Murray into French Open semi-finals

    Murray 5-7 7-6 (7-3) 6-0 6-2 Gasquet

    Richard Gasquet lobs a towel into the crowd as he trudges down the tunnel and out of the French Open.

    Andy Murray advances to a last-four meeting with defending champion Stan Wawrinka. That will be a match to savour and suffer.

  5. Game, set and match Murray

    Murray 5-7 7-6 (7-3) 6-0 6-2 Gasquet

    Andy Murray wades into an enormous forehand at 15-0 up, but that rips straight into the net.

    A more patiently-built point ends with him batting away a forehand volley for 30-15.

    Gasquet boffs a backhand return long and that is us done in three hours 23 minutes.

    Mary Pierce

    Former French Open champion on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "It's going to be very important to rest after this match.

    "The fatigue tends to hit you in the second week. Clay is the toughest surface physically. Your legs get very sore. 

    "You have the ice baths, the massages. When this match is over there's still a lot to do. 

    "No matter how fit you are, it does add up. A competition takes it out of you."

  7. Post update

    *Murray 5-7 7-6 (7-3) 6-0 5-2 Gasquet

    Richard Gasquet avoids being ushered out of the exit doors on his own serve, holding onto his serve for the loss of a point.

    He flops into his courtside stool though knowing that that is probably his last hurrah.

    Murray to serve for a place in the last four next.

  8. Watching Murray is like...

    Get involved #bbctennis

    Tom: Watching Murray is like being savaged by a bear, only to come out with only a few bruises and cuts that heal within a day or two.

    Mike Flockhart: Watching Murray is like watching your iPhone on 1%. It never dies.

    Dan Robb: Watching Murray is like hammering in a nail. Sometimes, straight through without any fuss. Other times, ugly mess with swearing.

  9. Post update

    Murray 5-7 7-6 (7-3) 6-0 5-1 * Gasquet

    Andy Murray mercilessly runs 40-0 up the flag. 

    Richard Gasquet has had enough of being humiliated in his own house and steps in to thump a backhand down the line.

    But showreel material is all he is going to be taking from this match.

    Murray clouts an ace to bring the curtain down.

    Mary Pierce

    Former French Open champion on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "Richard is getting tired so the intensity is dropping and he's making mistakes. To a top player like Andy it makes a big difference."

  11. Murray breaks

    *Murray 5-7 7-6 (7-3) 6-0 4-1 Gasquet

    Andy Murray brings up two break points with an extraordinary reflex reply to a Richard Gasquet smash.

    And takes the first with a forceful forehand.

    His squeal of delight echos around a silent Philippe Chatrier arena.

    Umpire Jake Garner would be waving this off if he was a boxing referee.

    To put this into context - Mike on Twitter (see 14:13 entry) suggested Andy Murray resembled a llama when he roared.

    We feel privileged to have such creative readers. Bravo, guys. Bravo. 

  13. Post update

    Murray 5-7 7-6 (7-3) 6-0 3-1 * Gasquet

    This has turned into a procession rather than a contest.

    Andy Murray is irritated by the loss of a single point on his own serve. Gasquet looks surprised to have won that many.

    Barring a huge momentum shift, this one is heading Murray's way. And soon.

    Matt Taggart: Frankly I'm amazed at what Andy Murray can do while wearing hiking boots.

    They are monster shoes...

  15. Murray breaks

    *Murray 5-7 7-6 (7-3) 6-0 2-1 Gasquet

    Richard Gasquet shrugs his shoulders and looks to the heavens in exasperation. 

    Put a beret, Breton top and a string of onions on it and you would have a national stereotype.

    He is feeling helpless in the face of Murray's relentless accuracy and depth.

    Two break points for the Frenchman to try and find his way though now.

    Gasquet crouchs and slugs away a forehand to see off the first.

    But Murray crashes a forehand down the line, scampers into the net and slides away a volley to convert a second.

    The home crowd are considering their dinner plans.

  16. Post update

    Murray 5-7 7-6 (7-3) 6-0 1-1 * Gasquet

    Andy Murray still is playing at a level above Richard Gasquet. He whisks though a service game to 15 and turns the spotlight back on the Frenchman.

    After the see-sawing first two sets, the Scot is looking to make a quick, clean kill of the last two.

  17. Watching Murray is like...

    Hari Dhesi: Watching Murray is like waiting for Jon Snow. He always comes back.

    John Bamber: Watching Murray is like watching your fuel gauge when you're miles from a petrol station. You'll get there, maybe?

    Matthew Birch: Watching Murray is like sitting through a chick flick with the missus. It's painful, but you hope it'll be worth it.

    Zippy de do dah: Watching Murray is reasonably satisfying until he meets Djokovic, at which point he usually resembles a foal's first walk.

  18. Post update

    *Murray 5-7 7-6 (7-3) 6-0 0-1 Gasquet

    You would think that a 6-0 set might keep Andy Murray happy for at least a game.

    You would be wrong.

    "You are laughing up there...cracking up," he tells off his box after losing a point.

    Richard Gasquet keeps his head down, avoids the crossfire and manages to get on the board for the first time in a long time.

  19. Post update

    Murray 5-7 7-6 (7-3) 6-0 * Gasquet

    Just twenty-seven minutes for that third set.

    Richard Gasquet is performing to type so far. 

    Flashes of briliance, but mentally too brittle to live with the world's best.

    Can he turn around that perception? Here we go in the fourth. Mike Henson back on the typing here.

  20. Game and third set

    Murray 5-7 7-6 (7-3) 6-0 *Gasquet

    It eerily quiet around the court now with Gasquet on the slide in this match.

    Murray storms into a 40-0 lead for a triple set point.

    Gasquet is unable to return Murray's stonking serve and the Briton absolutely breezes the third set.
