Murray set for return at French Open prep event

Sports

Andy Murray will make his comeback from an ankle injury at this month’s Geneva Open after the former world No. 1 received a wild card from the organizers of the French Open tune-up event on Wednesday.

Murray, who turns 37 later this month, rolled his ankle in the final set of his loss to Tomas Machac in the Miami Open in March and withdrew from the Monte Carlo Masters and Munich Open last month.

He opted not to undergo surgery and will now return in the May 18-25 tournament in Switzerland.

The three-time Grand Slam winner, who had hip resurfacing surgery in 2019, previously said he did not plan to “play much past this summer” but hoped to compete at another Olympics.

Murray had also said he hoped to play at the French Open, which starts at Roland Garros on May 26. Murray has not played in the tournament since 2020 or won a match there since 2017.

Wimbledon, where Murray has twice been champion, begins July 1, and the Paris Games start later that month.
