Andy will need to keep his guard up as he faces rising star, Karen Khachanov for a spot in the last eight at Roland Garros.

The 21-year-old, ranked 53 in the world, eliminated 13th-seed Tomas Berdych in round two before beating big-serving John Isner, seeded 21st, in four sets.

Murray's match on Court Philippe Chatrier is not the highlight for the local fans, with Frenchman Gael Monfils taking on third-seed Stanlisas Wawrinka in their fourth round clash.

Monfils, a semifinalist in 2008, reached the last 16 after fellow countryman Richard Gasquet retired due to a thigh injury midway through the third set.

In the ladies chart, there will be a mouth watering clash between Caroline Garcia and Alize Cornet. Both players are not on speaking terms after the former did not play for France in the Fed Cup in April.

Second seed Karolina Pliskova faces Paraguay's Veronica Cepede Royg for a place in the last eight.
