Murray Withdraws with Back Injury

Murray Withdraws with Back Injury

Eighth seed Andy Murray has been forced to withdraw from Masters Series Monte-Carlo with a back injury. Murray, who on Monday broke into the ATP Rankings Top 10 for the first time in his career, retired from his first-round doubles match with brother Jamie on Monday with a lower back spasm.

Murray said Tuesday: "Basically, I had a backhand in doubles yesterday and I felt something a little bit sore and just never recovered. Just getting worse and worse, and by the end of the tiebreak I couldn't really stand up and found it tough to walk off the court. But it's gone from being the whole of my back to being of the lower left side of my back, which isn't too bad. It's about 50% better than it was yesterday, but still struggling to walk a little bit."

"I never had anything like that before where I had to sort of limp off the court. Not being able to walk off the court is a little bit frustrating.

"It's a muscular thing, which I guess is good. But it's just one of those things that happens when you go from a playing outdoor hard court to playing on a low-bouncing indoor hard court to playing on clay. It's pretty tough on the body."

Murray plans to return to Dunblane, Scotland, today and have another scan. "I guess I'll get a diagnosis from this and I'll know exactly what the problem is and how bad the inflammation is and how long it's going to take to go away. I'm not exactly sure."
