Andy Murray walked off the court Wednesday at the Italian Open with a back issue, and now the British star says that he is doubtful for the French Open at the end of the month.
"I have an issue with my lower back," Murray said, according to the Associated Press. "It's been an issue for a while."
After pulling even in his match Wednesday with Marcel Granollers at a set apiece, Murray walked off the court and retired. Earlier in the second set he had taken a long injury break to have his lower back and thigh massaged.
Murray, who was celebrating his 26th birthday, said afterwards that he has been dealing with the issue since 2011 and that he would determine his status for the French Open after further evaluating the situation -- though it doesn't look good.
"I would be very surprised if I was playing in Paris," Murray said. "I need to make a plan as to what I do. I'll chat with the guys tonight and make a plan for the next few days then make a decision on Paris after the next five days."
