World No. 1 Andy Murray set up a French Open blockbuster against Juan Martin del Potro Thursday, the latest chapter in what has developed into an epic rivalry.Murray, the 2016 runner-up, reached the third round with a bruising 6-7 (3), 6-2, 6-2, 7-6 (3) win over Martin Klizan of Slovakia.Del Potro, playing in Paris for the first time in five years, went through to the last 32 after Nicolas Almagro retired in tears with a knee injury.Out on Suzanne Lenglen court, world No. 50 Klizan smashed 57 winners but 67 unforced errors as his all-or-nothing game proved in vain against top seed Murray.Del Potro, 28, had taken the first set 6-3 before Almagro claimed the next by the same score.
