Andy Murray French Open Record

Roland Garros 2012The red clay courts of Europe are not Andy Murray’s best surface and a as a result the French Open is Murray’s least successful grand slam event. He did not achieve his first win at Roland Garros until 2008.

The Scot has only made it to the second week on three occasions and has progressed to the the quarter finals or better just twice. In 2011 he reached the semi final’s losing to Rafael Nadal, this was Murray’s best ever showing at the French Open.

He missed the 2007 event due to an ankle injury and he almost injured himself again seriously during the 2011 French Open whilst playing Michael Berrer when he turned his ankle. All in all, Paris is not his happiest Grand Slam event.

He has had some memorable matches in Paris. In 2010 he came back from 2 sets down to beat home favourite Richard Gasquet in the first round. Then in 2011 he beat Michael Berrer playing on almost one leg after the Scotsman turned his ankle during a point, it all looked like the end for Murray, but he hobbled on and still managed to win in straight sets.

Following that match and that injury he played Viktor Troicki and he once again found himself two sets down and once again Murray would come back to win the match.
