After a mixed clay season, Andy Murray has opted out of the French Open. The 36-year-old Murray will focus on building his game for the all-important British grass season.

The former French semifinalist went 0-3 in three tour-level level events on dirt, but he did win the Aix En Provence challenger title earlier this month over Tommy Paul. He played five clay events losing first round in four of them including earlier this week in a opening round loss to Stan Wawrinka at the Bordeaux Challenger.

During Madrid, Murray hinted the French wasn’t a sure thing.

“I would like to play,” Murray said. “Just purely because I don’t know if I’ll get another opportunity to play again. Whilst I feel fit and healthy, I would like to give it a go.

“But, I also have ambitions of competing for Wimbledon titles and that sort of stuff, and I know that sitting here today that probably doesn’t sound realistic, but I do believe that that’s a possibility. I obviously want to do the right thing there.”

Murray has only played the French once in 2020 since his 2017 semifinal run. Murray is 41 in the live ATP Rankings.
