Tennis News: Andy Murray returned to action in the Madrid Open last week, defeating Dominic Thiem and Denis Shapovalov before being forced to withdraw from what would have been his first meeting with Novak Djokovic since 2017 due to illness.

Andy Murray has withdrawn from the French Open this month and instead concentrate on preparing for Wimbledon.

The Scot, who turned 35 on Sunday, said in February that he would forgo the entire clay-court season, but later changed his mind and entered the Madrid Open as a wildcard.

He reached the third round after beating Dominic Thiem and Denis Shapovalov before having to withdraw from what would have been his first meeting with Novak Djokovic since 2017 due to hip surgery.

Murray, who has rejoined with coach Ivan Lendl, stayed in the Roland Garros draw, and it appeared as he could play in the year’s second grand slam after all, but he has since withdrawn out and is adhering to his original plan.

Murray has only competed at the French Open once since 2017, when he was eliminated in the first round in 2020. Since reaching the Wimbledon quarter-finals five years ago, the three-time grand slam champion hasn’t advanced past the third round of a major.

Murray will now travel to the United Kingdom to prepare for the grass-court season, which begins in early June and concludes on June 27 with Wimbledon.
