Murray Receives Roland Garros Wild Card

Former World No. 1 Andy Murray will take the field for this year’s Roland Garros after being granted a main draw wild card. The 33-year-old Brit will continue his comeback from hip surgery at the Paris major, where he fell to Novak Djokovic in the final four years ago.

Currently No. 110 in the FedEx ATP Rankings, Murray returned to the tour in August for the Western & Southern Open in Flushing Meadows. He scored three-set victories over Frances Tiafoe and Alexander Zverev, before the German went on to reach the US Open final.

Eventual runner-up Milos Raonic ended Murray’s run in the third round, but he carried his promising form to an opening-round triumph at the US Open. Murray fought back from two sets down and saved a match point to deny Japan’s Yoshihito Nishioka, before No. 15 seed Felix Auger-Aliassime had his number.

It was his first Grand Slam tournament since the 2019 Australian Open, while he has not played at Roland Garros since he fell to Stan Wawrinka in the 2017 semi-finals. He will enter the event without any clay-court matches after he ruled out competing at the Internazionali BNL d’Italia in Rome this week.
