In his third round French Open win today over Michael Berrer, Andy Murray had a scary moment when he rolled his right ankle in the fourth game on the second set. Murray winced in pain, fell to the clay but after treatment kept playing and still won the match rather easily 62 63 62.
“Well, I just rolled my ankle, and then, yeah, obviously pretty sore for the rest of the match,” said Murray. “As soon as I got done, did some icing. Then, yeah, that’s it. I’ve just got to wait and see how it pulls up or do all the right things to make sure, give it my best possible shot for the next match.”
Murray has an unbelievable draw but the ankle injury which he will get scanned could dampen his chances or even force his withdrawal from the tournament.
“I’ve managed to play almost two sets with it,” he added. “I’ve just got to wait and see, see what happens and do all the right things. You know I’ll try and 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 at 100% fit. Maybe I will be. You never know with these things. They can go away quickly. There’s things you can do to recover faster. That’s what I’ll do.”
The fact that even a limping Murray was able to win comfortably speaks of just how poorly Berrer played. Murray will play Viktor Troicki on Monday. Having sprained my ankle numerous times if it does swell up overnight it’s going to be very tough for the Scot to progress further in the draw.
