Murray (right) and Liam Broady lost in the second round of the Italian Open

Andy Murray will not play at the French Open and will instead focus on preparing for the grass-court season.

The British former world number one played doubles with Liam Broady at the Italian Open but turned down a wildcard for this week’s Geneva Open.

Murray’s doubles return was his first match since March, after he pulled out of the Miami Open with a groin injury.

It is believed the 34-year-old is still feeling some discomfort and, therefore, has chosen to miss the French Open.

Murray is now back in London preparing for the grass-court season before Queen’s and Wimbledon.

Queen’s starts on 14 June and Murray recently said he “cannot wait” to play in front of British fans again at the west London club event.

There may also be other options for him to play on the grass-court circuit.
