Fourth seed Andy Murray battled into the French Open quarter-finals.....and got a bit of help from a ballboy along the way.

Murray had fought back superbly to level the match at two sets all on Monday and the opening five games of the second set on Tuesday went with serve.

Then at the start of the sixth game of the last set a ball boy
inexplicably ran on to the court.....right in front of the Serb as he was
winning the point with a smash.

The umpire ordered them to replay the point which Murray won, leading
to more rage from Troicki and boos from a crowd sympathetic to the
blushing boy.

As it turned out Troicki seemed to be fired up by the incident and went on to break the Briton to lead 4-2.

But the 15th seed lost his serve twice, sending a backhand into the net on the key point as Murray sealed a last-eight clash with Juan Ignacio Chela.
