  • Murray back in action at French Open

    5/27/12 7:03 PM | Kelli DeMario
    Murray back in action at French Open World No. 4 Andy Murray is set to highlight clay-court competition at the French Open, looking to secure his first Grand Slam title. The Scot enters the 128-player draw as the fourth seed.

    Murray is back on court after falling to France’s Richard Gasquet at the Masters 1000 Rome. The 25-year-old has compiled a 22-7 mark for the season, aided by a title-winning run in Brisbane and a pair of runner-up finishes in Dubai and Miami.

    Murray will be making his sixth appearance at the French Open. He made his deepest run at the 2011 tournament, where he made the final four before losing to six-time champion Rafael Nadal.

    The world No. 4 leads a tricky quarter of the draw that includes (6) David Ferrer, (10) John Isner, (16) Alexandr Dolgopolov, (17) Richard Gasquet, (20) Marcel Granollers, (25) Bernard Tomic and (27) Mikhail Youzhny.

    Additional combatants in the quarter are former world No. 4 James Blake, Lukas Lacko, Benoit Paire, Albert Ramos, Ivan Dodig, Robin Haase, Philipp Petzschner, Paul-Henri Mathieu, Donald Young, Grigor Dimitrov, Jarkko Nieminen, Igor Andreev and former world No. 2 Tommy Haas.

    Murray will commence his run against Japan’s Tatsuma Ito.

    The closest seed to the Murray is (25) Tomic, who looms as a potential third-round opponent. Should the Scot move through the draw, he looks to a possible round of 16 clash with either (16) Dolgopolov or (17) Gasquet and a quarterfinal battle with (6) Ferrer.

    If Murray makes his way to the last four, he could face world No. 2 Rafael Nadal for a place in the final.
