Andy Murray withdraws from French Open as Wimbledon proirity despite ranking points threat


Murray was set to miss the clay season and prepare for the grass after reuniting with former coach Ivan Lendl. But he decided to take a wildcard into the Madrid Masters and toyed with the idea of playing Rome to get some more competitive matches in before Wimbledon.

The world No 69 then picked up an illness that forced him to withdraw ahead of his Madrid third-round match with Novak Djokovic, and he then pulled out of the Rome Masters qualifying. With the illness reducing the amount of matches he had, it was not known whether Murray would decide to play the French Open after all.

But he is sticking to his guns and has officially removed himself from the draw as he focuses on the upcoming grass court season, where he hopes he can have the most success. The 35-year-old will also be starting his grass swing earlier than usual, having entered the ATP 250 in Stuttgart, which begins on June 4.
