    Murray reveals depth of back injury drama With his game being re-established on grass in the Wimbledon run-up, event at Queen's club this week Andy Murray has revealed the true extent of the back injury which forced him to skip the French Open and concentrate totally on recovery.

    Murray quit a second-round Rome match in mid-May with his back problem, returning to London for medical evaluation and eventually withdrawing from Roland Garros. He is now back in action on grass at
    Queen's. "It was so tough for me to miss the French Open but I know I made the right decision," he told the BBC.

    "I knew in the back of my mind a couple of days before Rome that something wasn't quite right with my back. After Rome I was struggling to get up and down stairs and to walk around.

    "That's when I realised I probably wasn't going to be able to do a whole lot for a week or 10 days. Once the decision was made to pull out of the French I moved on from it fairly quickly, but it didn't make missing one of the biggest tournaments of the year any easier. It just made me more determined to get myself fit and back on the match court as soon as possible."

    Murray will hope to go one better in this edition at the All England club after losing the 2012 final to Roger Federer. He is playing Queen's after nearly 10 days of training. "I did get to spend extra time preparing on the grass and hopefully that will be an advantage. I've certainly spent a lot more time over the last month
    watching TV than I usually do."
