‘Sad to see’: Tennis fans stunned by Andy Murray announcement

Andy Murray has made the stunning decision to skip the French Open so he can be fully fit for Wimbledon.



The former World No.1 made his return from a groin injury with a training week and two doubles matches in Rome this week on clay.




He had been expected to play singles next week, but is still feeling some discomfort and has headed back home for more rehab.

He will now begin training on his favourite surface of grass, with full fitness for Wimbledon now the clear goal.




Murray had been planning to take a wild card into one of the ATP tournaments in Geneva or Lyon next week.

However it emerged on Saturday that he had turned one down for the Swiss event, raising serious questions about his prospects of playing at Roland Garros.
