Murray and Del Potro meet again; Wawrinka also in action

It will be the first time since 1994 - and only the third since tennis turned professional in 1968 - that three Frenchwomen will play the last 16 at Roland Garros, with the extra guarantee that one will be in the quarter-finals as Cornet will take on Garcia. They join No. 13 Kristina Mladenovic, who won on Friday.

But there will be no love lost when Garcia and Cornet square off on Monday - at least from Garcia's side. "Whoever had won that first set had big momentum", Murray said.

The bad feeling stems from France's Fed Cup play-off against Spain in April.

There had already been controversy over her selection as Garcia had earlier stated she did not want to play in the event at all in 2017.

She pulled out injured but doubts were publicly raised about the validity of her injury and it was not until a French federation doctor confirmed she could not play that her decision was accepted.

"I received a text message but no apologies", said Garcia. "She said she was still standing behind her tweets, so I consider that it doesn't mean anything".

Calling North Korea's nuclear ambitions a "threat to us all", Mattis asked the worldwide community to come together on the issue. Top security officials and experts have expressed fears over the progress of the North's missile programme.

Mladenovic responded with an interview in which she compared Garcia's educational record unfavourably with her own and said her former partner was controlled by her father.

Garcia, seeded 28, made the fourth round of a Slam for the first time with a 6-4 4-6 9-7 win over Taiwan's world No109 Hsieh Su-Wei - who had earlier knocked Brit Jo Konta out of the tournament.

"Well, now, it's pretty OK", Halep said about her ankle. It's been a long journey. "I'm really happy to play on grass and it doesn't matter what the results are". He has not had a great season so far, though, particularly on the clay-court circuit leading up to the French Open, but he now has reached the fourth round for the eighth time in 10 appearances in Paris.

Garcia added: "I don't want to prove anything to anybody".

Cornet resumed where she had left off, feathering delightful drop shots over the net to leave Radwanska stranded, but too frequently she let her off the hook with a sloppy double fault.

"I think she may have a grudge against us, so she's not ready to talk with me, so I don't think that it will be good to talk to her, because we are playing against each other. I can run, I can slide", she told a news conference.

"She is angry with us and I can understand it".

The third-seeded Romanian - a beaten finalist in Paris in 2014 - is being tipped as a title favourite after a stellar run-up on clay to this year's tournament.

In other Saturday third-round action, Spanish 21st seed Carla Suarez Navarro also reached the last 16 with a 6-4 6-4 win over No.14 Elena Vesnina of Russian Federation.

Halep, the runner-up to Maria Sharapova in 2014, said: "It was a good match. But I stuck to my game plan till the end of the match, and when I'm focused on my game at the end of the day, I managed to produce good tennis despite lots of emotions".

"It's a very nice feeling to be again in the second week". During the match I was also tense, more tight than in the previous games. It gives me confidence for the next week, and also nerves, but better nerves this time. I just have confidence that I have my chance.

Radwanska had come from a set down to win her last match.
