Injured Murray likely to miss French Open
London: Tennis ace Andy Murray has said that it is ‘unlikely’ that he will play in the French Open starting Sunday, following a chronic back injury.
The world no. 2 champion informed the umpire during the Rome Open against Marcel Granollers that he will not be able to continue as he rushed for a treatment, after leveling the match in the second round.
According to the report, the despondent Murray had reached close to the second grand slam of the season and said that he had planned to quit as he was unsure that he would make through the game even if he were selected for the French Open, adding that he will make a decision in Paris after the next five days as his pain is still sore.
Murray further said that it is frustrating to play with pain even though the injections ease out the pain and reduce some inflammation, but will not make him feel 100 percent fine.
Murray has suffered through the injury since 2011 and is uncertain whether to consider surgery as an option.
