Ankle injury puts Murray's French Open in doubt

Ankle injury puts Murray's French Open in doubt

Andy Murray admitted his continued participation in the French Open is in doubt after suffering an ankle injury midway through his 6-2 6-3 6-2 victory over Michael Berrer today.

The Scot was in complete control of the third-round match and was hoping to break his German opponent’s serve for the third time in the fourth game of the second set when he rolled his right ankle chasing down a drop shot.

Murray was able to continue after having the joint heavily strapped but his movement was clearly affected and it was only a combination of some superb hitting and Berrer’s utter failure to take advantage of the situation that saw him through so comfortably.

The fourth seed is due to face Viktor Troicki on Monday, and he said: “I’ve managed to play almost two sets with it but I’ve just got to wait and see and do all the right things.

“I’ll try to hit some balls tomorrow and that’s all I can do just now.

“I don’t know if I’ll be playing the next match. I don’t know if I’ll be 100% fit.

“You never know with these things, they can go away quickly. There’s things you can do to recover faster and that’s what I’ll do.”
