Andy Murray Withdraws From French Open

May 19, 2021 by

Scottish tennis star Andy Murray has withdrawn from this year’s French Open, citing discomfort from a recent string of injuries and a desire to focus on Wimbledon as the main motivations behind the decision.

Murray was recently seen struggling with discomfort during the ATP Masters 1000 event in Rome, Italy. After having travelled to Rome to train with top players, Murray linked up with Liam Broady in the doubles before falling out in the second round.

The idea was for the Scot to ask for a wildcard for either the main draw of Geneva, or that of Lyon next week, after which the plan had been to continue on to Roland Garros. He however ended up declining a wildcard for Geneva following his discomfort in Rome.

At five months into the current season, Murray has played in only singles events across two ATP tournaments. He recently admitted to his morale having fallen in the dumps after so many days spent in injury-rehab at home. He however seems intent on being fit and ready to compete in three weeks when the new grass season gets off to a start during the second week of the French Open.

The aim seems to be to be ready to compete again in time to make his return on June 8. This will see him competing either at the Challenger in Nottingham or the ATP 250 in Stuttgart.

The Scot before travelling to Italy said the series of back injury disappointments suffered resulting from his hip surgery in 2019 has been a source of immense frustration.
