Andy Murray

Murray splits from coach Lendl

The Briton won three Grand Slam titles and two Olympic Golds over two separate periods with the Czech, as well as securing No 1 in 2016 after winning the ATP Finals in London.

Murray, 30, has struggled with injury for much of this year, suffering from a hip injury at Wimbledon and then missing the US Open. He has fallen to 16th in the current rankings.

Murray pulls out of Cincinnati

World number one Murray struggled with the issue prior to his Wimbledon defence and appeared to be suffering the effects when he was beaten in the quarter-finals by Sam Querrey.

The Brit has not played since that match and pulled out of the Rogers Cup, meaning he could well be replaced at the top of the rankings by Rafael Nadal this month.

However, Murray remains hopeful of being in condition to compete at the US Open.

Stan ends Murray's Paris dream

The Swiss third seed fought back from two sets to one down in a high-quality contest with a spellbinding performance in the fifth-set decider to seal a 6-7 6-3 5-7 7-6 6-1 triumph and a date with Rafael Nadal in Sunday's final.

A succession of Wawrinka winners left the world no 1 helpless in the final set as the 32-year-old fittingly brought an end to more than four-and-a-half hours of sensational tennis in the Paris sunshine with a brilliant backhand winner to reach his fourth career Grand Slam final.

Murray sees off Del Potro

The world No 1 battled back to win a marathon first set lasting one hour and 25 minutes before triumphing 7-6 (8) 7-5 6-0 on Philippe Chatrier.

He will next face 21st seed John Isner or Russian Karen Khachanov for a place in the quarter-finals.

Murray and Del Potro contested a couple of epic matches in 2016, with the Brit winning in four sets in the Olympic final in Brazil and the Argentine winning over five hours in the Davis Cup semi-finals.

And it looked like another lengthy encounter could be on the cards during an absorbing first set.

Murray, Konta eye French success

The two respective British No 1s are expected to comfortably progress to round two despite enduring indifferent clay court seasons.

Murray faces Andrey Kuznetsov, the world No 73, in Paris aiming to reproduce some of the stellar tennis which saw him reach the French Open final 12 months ago where he lost to Novak Djokovic.

Murray beaten by Thiem in Barca

Murray, who entered the tournament to get more matches under his belt as he works his way back from an elbow injury, has gradually been improving over the course of the week, but was unable to cope with the powerful young Austrian in a brutal battle.

Fourth seed Thiem notched his third British scalp of the week after knocking out Kyle Edmund and Dan Evans, and sealed a famous 6-2 3-6 6-4 win in two hours and 15 minutes to reach Sunday's final where he could meet nine-time winner Rafael Nadal.

Murray gets Ramos-Vinolas revenge

Ramos-Vinolas beat the world No 1 on Murray's return from an elbow injury in the third round of the Monte Carlo Masters last week, and he looked poised for a repeat.

But Ramos-Vinolas missed a chance to serve for the match and it was Murray who came through 2-6 6-4 7-6 (7-4) in a little under three hours.

In the semi-finals he will face fourth seed Dominic Thiem, who will be looking for a third British scalp of the week after knocking out Kyle Edmund and Dan Evans.

Murray loses to Fed on return

The world No 1 says he is targeting a return to competitive action in Monte Carlo next week.

Murray has suffered with shingles and illness since the turn of the year and was forced to withdraw from the Miami Open in the middle of March after injuring his elbow.

Murray subsequently missed Great Britain's exit from the Davis Cup against France over the weekend, but he kept up his promise to play against Federer in 'The Match for Africa 3' at the Hallenstadion on Monday night.

'Murray motivated for Dubai'

The world No 1 has not played since a shock fourth-round exit to Mischa Zverev in the fourth round of the Australian Open, and revealed he contracted shingles on returning from Melbourne.

Murray, 29, is top seed in the singles in Dubai and kicks off his campaign against Tunisian world No 47 Malek Jaziri in the first round on Tuesday.

The Briton, who was runner-up to Roger Federer in 2012, has said that he has been training flat-out over the past few weeks and is feeling fresh and raring to go.

Murray: I'll be back for France

World No 1 Murray sat out last weekend's tie with Canada in the wake of his surprise fourth-round exit at January's Australian Open.

Britain won 3-2 in Murray's absence but will be bolstered by the Scot's return for a last-eight meeting likely to be played on clay.

"My body's pretty pleased I took some time off," he told Sky Sports News HQ. "I've had enough rest and I'll look forward to [France].

"It'll be tough. I assume they'll probably put it on clay. I don't know where they'll play it, but Monte Carlo would be good."
