Andy Murray says that his fourth-round victory over Richard Gasquet was the most fun he has had on court in a long time.

Andy Murray has described the atmosphere during his French Open clash with Richard Gasquet as one of the most hostile that he has ever played in.

The Scot came from behind to dump the Frenchman out in four sets in Paris and book a quarter-final clash with David Ferrer.

Murray had planned on using the partisan atmosphere to his advantage and believes that he did just that.

"He obviously started the match well but I started to use the energy from the crowd in a positive way and obviously turned it around and played very well the last few sets," said Murray.

"I wouldn't say it got too much. It was almost like playing a football match. And I like football. I enjoyed myself on the court today.

"It's the most fun I've had on the court in a while, so I wasn't shying away from the fact that the crowd wanted me to lose. I've played Davis Cup a few times away from home but that was probably one of the most hostile atmospheres that I've played in."

Murray has won all four of his Grand Slam matches against Gasquet.
