ANDY MURRAY is the sole Brit left standing at the French Open after Aljaz Bedene fell to world No.1 Novak Djokovic.
Scots star Murray cut giant Ivo Karlovic down to size in the last round and now faces another beanpole, America’s John Isner, for a place in the quarters.
Murray has won all five of their previous encounters and is just 1-9 at marathonbet to progress. The British No.1 has already been taken to two five setters by lesser lights at this year’s French Open so there may be mileage in over 3.5 sets in this one at 11-8 with bet365.
The day’s other matches at the French Open include defending champ Stan Wawrinka against Viktor Troicki while in the women’s singles Simona Halep and Agnieszka Radwanska look to book a last-eight spot.
On the F1 track Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo claimed the first pole of his career for today’s Monaco Grand Prix while England’s cricketers continue their second Test against Sri Lanka.
