Andy Murray v Fernando Verdasco was Mats Wilander's pick of the day at Roland Garros and it left the Eurosport expert describing the Brit as a "tactical genius".

"From the first point on he was really dictating play," said Mats as he deconstructed a superb display from Murray in the last-16 of the French Open.

Murray's booming backhand was the key to victory, according to Mats, setting him up for a quarter-final against home favourite Gael Monfils.

We also spoke to Murray following his straight-sets win over Verdasco, which he described as an "incredibly hard match".

Rafa Nadal is still the man to beat of course, and Mats assessed the state of the Spaniard's game as he challenges for a ninth title in Paris.
