Andy Murray

Injured Murray On French Open Entry List



Andy Murray has been named on the entry list for the French Open, but fellow Briton Emma Raducanu is not yet assured of a place in the draw.

Three-time Grand Slam champion Murray, 36, ruptured ankle ligaments at the Miami Open last month.

Raducanu missed the last eight months of 2023 but has a protected ranking of 103 and is the fifth alternate.

If she does not make the main draw because of withdrawals, she will need a wildcard or to come through qualifying.


The French Open starts on 26 May.

Murray has played at Roland Garros only once since hip resurfacing surgery in 2019, losing in the first round in 2020.

The Scot, who won Olympic gold at London 2012 and Rio 2016, said this year that he wants to compete at another Games before he retires.

Rafael Nadal, the 14-time French Open champion, is one of five players entered in the main draw to benefit from a protected ranking.
