Murray suddenly under the spotlight

When third seed Andy Murray steps on court for his French Open quarter-final against Fernando Gonzalez on Tuesday, he will suddenly find himself under the spotlight.

During the first nine days of the claycourt major, Murray was barely noticed as he slipped into the last eight but the shock exit of Rafael Nadal has totally changed the dynamics.

The Briton is now the highest seed left in the top half of the draw and, on paper at least, is favourite to reach Sunday's final.

Although it is a tall order for someone who until this week had never strung together four wins on clay, Murray will be keen not to let the chance slip through his fingers. Asked about how he would tackle Chile's Gonzalez in their first meeting on red dirt, the 22-year-old said: "He's very unpredictable, which makes it tough to play against him.
