Andy Murray’s French Open prep took a hit today when the world No. 4 officially withdrew his name from the Madrid Masters because of a back injury.
“It is with regret that on doctors advice I have to withdraw from the Mutua Madrid Open with injury,” Murray said in a statement on the Madrid website. “I always love coming to Madrid so it is a big disappointment. I look forward to returning next year and wish everyone a great week of tennis.”
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga will now move into the No. 4 seed slot when the draw is released Saturday afternoon.
Murray is still scheduled for Rome next weekend. The Scot has one title on the season, that coming in his first event at Brisbane.
