Andy Murray isn’t think French Open title. The Scot who much prefers the green grass and lush lawns at Wimbledon where he won last summer still offered an opinion when as who he back to win in Paris.

“I don’t know. I also really don’t care, to be honest,” Murray said. “For me, anyway, it really doesn’t matter. It’s stuff that everyone talks about. But, you know, when, you know normally when the tournament starts, whether Rafa has been playing well or not, I would expect him to play great tennis here. I would expect Novak to play great tennis here. Roger, you know, I would also expect to play very well.

“That’s what they have done,” he said. “So there is nothing there to suggest that they are all of a sudden going to stop performing well in the slams and struggle. I would expect them to all have great tournaments. But who wins depends who plays the best at the end of the event really, and we don’t know that because we can’t predict the future.”

Murray. who nearly upset Nadal at Rome, is a former semifinalist in Paris. He’ll open against Andrey Golubev either Monday or Tuesday.

“He’s a very dangerous player, big forehand, goes for his shots,” Murray said of the Kazakhstani. “Yeah, he doesn’t hold back. When he’s on, he’s a very tough guy to beat. But, you know, his form has been a bit inconsistent I think just because of his game style, really. He plays exciting tennis, goes for big shots, and when he’s on makes it very difficult.”

Murray also has yet to tab a new coach, but an announcement is coming soon he said. “I’m not in a panic to get someone, but it’s a lot closer than it was.”
