Murray-Troicki match at French Open suspended

BY foxsports • May 30, 2011

The fourth-round match between Andy Murray and Viktor Troicki at the French Open was suspended Monday because of darkness after the fourth-seeded Briton evened the score at two sets apiece, 4-6, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2.

The 15th-seeded Troicki was in control during the first two sets but Murray, who injured his right ankle in the previous round, broke in the eighth game of the third set and held his serve to get back in the match.

Troicki dropped serve again when Murray produced a stunning forehand return to lead 3-2 in the fourth. Murray broke again in the seventh game with two consecutive winners and served out the set before the chair umpire said it was too dark to continue.

The pair is expected to finish the match on Court Suzanne Lenglen on Tuesday.
