Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic have already made it to the round of 16 of the French Open 2017. Roger Federer has not participated in the tennis Grand Slam this year. So, who's the other big name missing? Guessed it right, it's World No. 1 Andy Murray.

However, reaching the round of 16 isn't that easy for Murray. The Scotsman takes on a crunching challenge in Argentina's Juan Martin Del Potro on Day 7 at the Roland Garros on Saturday, June 3.

Other hotshots — Stan Wawrinka and Kei Nishikori — are also in contention for the round of 16 entry at French Open 2017.

It's not been a very smooth ride so far for Murray as the 30-year-old player has dropped a set each in his previous French Open matches against Kuznetsov and Klizan.

Del Potro, meanwhile, has had a smooth sailing so far — winning his first round match in three sets against compatriot Guido Pella and later, bagging a lucky win against Nicolas Almagro, after the Spaniard had to retire in the third set of the match.

Head-to-head record

Murray 6-3 Del Potro
