Nishikori advances to French Open quarterfinals

Murray had never before played the unseeded Russian.

Having only made two unforced errors until that point, Murray threw in three in one game in blustery conditions, but broke again straight away as Khachanov showed his inexperience with a poor game of his own.

In his seventh Paris quarterfinal, Murray will face Japanese eighth seed Kei Nishikori who defeated 33-year-old Fernando Verdasco of Spain 0-6, 6-4, 6-4, 6-0.

"Kei is risky off both wings", Murray said.

The 25-year-old Halep will tackle Ukraine's fifth seed Elina Svitolina for a semi-final place.
