PARIS (AP) - Andy Murray held on through a tough third set and advanced to the quarterfinals of the French Open by beating Fernando Verdasco of Spain 6-4, 7-5, 7-6 (3) Monday.

Murray was up a break early in the third set, but a fired-up Verdasco saved 11 break points before finally breaking Murray to 4-4.

In the tiebreaker, the seventh-seeded Murray won the first three points. Although Verdasco won the next three, Murray took control again and served out the victory on his first match point.

Murray, who last year became the first British man to win the Wimbledon title since 1936, will next face Gael Monfils of France.
