Andy Murray says he will not be affected by a "tough atmosphere" when he plays France's Richard Gasquet in the French Open quarter-finals.

The match is scheduled for Tuesday, although Monday's play was cancelled because of the rain and there is more wet weather predicted.

Second-seed Murray has beaten Gasquet in all of their Grand Slam meetings.

Murray has beaten 29-year-old Gasquet four times in Grand Slam matches - twice at Roland Garros, coming from two sets down in a first-round match in 2010 and one set behind in their last-16 tie in 2012, and twice at Wimbledon.

Gasquet defeated fifth seed Kei Nishikori on Sunday to reach the quarter-finals of the French Open for the first time in his career.

Mondays washout at Roland Garros was the first time in 16 years a whole day's play had been cancelled, but tournament director Guy Forget remains confident the tournament will finish on schedule on Sunday.

The Murray v Gasquet match is scheduled to be the third on the Philippe Chatrier Court on Tuesday, but will definitely not take place before 13:00 BST.

Novak Djokovic's fourth-round match against Spain's Roberto Bautista Agut is first on, before Serena Williams' clash with Ukraine's Elina Svitolina in the fourth round of the women's singles.
