The big-serving American went into the match as the favourite but found himself unable to make a dent in the world No. 53’s serve and the 21-year-old continued his fine run at Roland Garros.
Khachanov dumped Tomas Berdych out in round two before seeing off the experienced 21st seed.
Their match took place over two days after play was suspended on Saturday, with the Russian a set up, and Khachanov picked up where he left off in order to take a 2-0 lead.
Isner held firm in the third, though, and won a tense tiebreak to claw his way back into the match.
The fourth set followed suit, with yet another tiebreak and this time Khachanov got over the line to dump the American out.
Isner had enjoyed a good build-up to the event – reaching the semi-finals of the Italian Open – but he was undone by a man who was playing in the third round of a Slam for the first time.
But it will take an exceptional effort for the big-serving 6’6” ace to reach the quarter-finals as he faces the world No. 1 in the last-16.
What is it?
It’s the last-16 French Open meeting between world No 1 Andy Murrayand Russia’s world No 53 Karen Khachanov.
When is it?
The match will take place on Monday June 5th.
What time does it start?

What’s the head to head?
The players have never met before.
How have they reached this round?
Murray was taken to four sets in both of his first two rounds, against Russia’s Andrey Kuznetsov and then Slovakia’s Martin Klizan. In the third round, the world No 1 was stretched all the way in a 1hr 23 minute first set against Juan Martin del Potro but eventually came through 7-6, 7-5, 6-0.
Khachanov defeated Chile’s Nicolas Jarry in the first round, before scoring a hugely impressive straight-sets win over ninth seed Tomas Berdych. The Russian then caused another upset in round three, taking out 21st seed John Isner in four sets.
Who is Karen Khachanov?
The 6ft 6in Russian Karen Khachanov is a bear of a man, with a huge serve and monster forehand.
Aged just 21 and ranked 53 in the world, Khachanov is one of tennis’s rising stars and is seen by many as a future grand slam winner.
He won his first ATP title at the Chengdu Open last October, and has already taken out two seeds at Roland Garros this year – Tomas Berdych and John Isner.
Andy Murray has never faced Khachanov previously but will be wary of his huge power, especially if the temperature gets up and the court starts playing faster.
Khachanov was profiled last October as part of our Rising Stars of Tennis series, and you can read the interview here.
Andy Murray’s French Open record – by numbers
What are they saying?
“I have never played a match against him [Khachanov], but I practised with him before he got on to the tour when he was like 350 (in the rankings), and he was really good. Big, strong guy. Generates a lot of power. He’s also got a big serve.
“I believe in myself. So even when things aren’t going well, I believe I can turn it around. It’s not easy, but if you work hard and do all the right things in practice, then it generally does come [good].
“The five-set format has definitely helped that. I have maybe not been as anxious going into some of the matches, because I know there is some time to turn it around. But mentally I feel pretty good just now. I’m happy with how the match was today [against Del Potro].”
What are the odds?
Murray – 1/6
Khachanov – 11/2
What’s our prediction?
Khachanov to be feeling the effects of having to play on Sunday, and Murray to take advantage and win in straight sets.
