Rory Jiwani previews today's fifth round matches in the men's tournament.
The rain delays have complicated matters at Roland Garros and there could be more to come. This may help Andy Murray with any potential final opponent likely to face a busy schedule over the next few days.
Murray looks back to his normal self after wins over Ivo Karlovic and John Isner but Richard Gasquet presents a far tougher test. The Scot loves facing the big servers and he has beaten Gasquet in their five previous meetings, but the Frenchman is playing superbly well this fortnight. I am not convinced Murray is playing as well as he can and this could be a nailbiter. I think Murray will win but I can definitely see this one going the distance
and I will have a saver on Gasquet to win in five.

We managed to get Kei Nishikori beat on Sunday (“Merci, Monsieur Gasquet”), and now I am gunning for Stan Wawrinka. The Swiss played some majestic stuff late on against Viktor Troicki but Albert Ramos
presents a different examination. The Spaniard beat Milos Raonic comfortably with some very solid tennis, helped by the slow conditions which have prevailed in recent days. If Ramos can keep the unforced error count low again, he can frustrate Wawrinka who has been known to spit the dummy when pushed. The prices allow me to have a small play without doing too much damage.
