Murray sits out the French Open

As expected Andy Murray, British no1 and world no 11 is out of the French Open with the wrist injury that put him out of Hamburg last week. While it’s a great shame, Tim Henman had it right – he cannot risk more injury to such a vital area and missing tournaments now (even, dare I whisper, Wimbledon) is infinitely preferable to long term injury and early retirement. Murray is 20. He has a decade and more at the top to look forward to. And he’ll still be no1 by the time he’s 21. Don’t rush back, be fit first.

    Now that the football season is over, all I have to look forward to is the tennis. Murray – will our plucky Braveheart make it to Wimbledon? I hope so, or the Brits will have no one to cheer for in the first week. I do prefer women’s tennis myself – a shame I didn’t get any tickets in the ballot this year.
