Andy Murray will look to make amends for last year’s US Open defeat when he takes on Kei Nishikori in the French Open quarter-finals on Wednesday.

Murray and Nishikori will meet on Court Philippe Chatrier at around 15:00 BST.

The Briton, 30, lost a dramatic five-set contest when they met at the same stage in New York last September.

Surprisingly, the Japanese player struggled to even recall the match when asked on Monday: “I don’t even know if I won or lost. I won?”

It was only his second win over Murray, who has since taken his tally to eight victories having beaten Nishikori in the Davis Cup, Olympics and ATP Finals in 2016.

After a slow start to 2017 as he struggled with injuries and illness, the world number one has found his form at Roland Garros.

Impressive wins over Juan Martin del Potro and Karen Khachanov in the last two rounds have suggested Murray is capable of matching last year’s run to the final.

“I’m happy with where my game’s at,” the Scot said after his fourth-round win.

“Everything is going pretty well just now. I’m feeling good going into the middle part of the second week.”
