Perennial Grand Slam title contenders Stan Wawrinka and Andy Murray were joined in the French Open quarterfinals by two unfamiliar faces Sunday as the Parisian clay continued to turn up unexpected plot lines.Three-time semifinalist Murray will play Richard Gasquet, the sole surviving French singles player, who had the crowd in raptures on Court Philippe Chatrier with a scintillating 6-4, 6-2, 4-6, 6-2 win over Japanese fifth seed Kei Nishikori.Two other players advanced to the second week of a Grand Slam for the first time.Wawrinka and Murray are also looking ominously in the groove as they move toward a likely semifinal showdown. Wawrinka, taken to five sets in the first round, is on an eight-match winning streak on clay having claimed the Geneva title in the buildup, while Murray made it nine in a row against Isner, having won the title in Rome.
