Minutes after losing to Felix Auger-Aliassime in the second round of the US Open, Andy Murray immediately announced his withdrawal from Rome and questioned his participation at Roland Garros.
However, everything seems to indicate that it will be the departure in Paris. “I have not played a match in brick dust since 2017. It is a long time. The conditions of the court did not benefit my physique at all. I have many doubts about whether I will play or not. My plan would be to play only Roland Garros, but this plan could change and not play it. What is 100% official is that I will not play in Rome, “he said hotly.
For now, the Briton, a finalist at Roland Garros in 2016, has his place assured, waiting to see how his physique responds in the previous training sessions.
The rest of the names are 100% French: Elliot Benchetrit, Hugo Gaston (champion of the Buenos Aires 2018 Youth Olympic Games), Quentin Halys, Antoine Hoang, Maxime Janvier, Harold Mayot and Arthur Rinderkneck.
Among the women, the Bulgarian Tsvetana Pironkova, recent semifinalist at the US Open, and the Canadian Eugenie Bouchard stand out, while the rest will be local: Clara Burel, Elsa Jacquemot, Chloe Pacquet, Pauline Parmentier, Diane Parry and Harmony Tan.
