Andy Murray has written a column for BBC Sport (click here) where he has talked about his ankle injury that may keep him out of Roland Garros. Below are some quotes from the article but you should click on the link if you want to read the whole thing.
Some of the things Murray says don’t give me a lot of faith that he is walking around with an ankle that just had a slight tweak but I guess we’ll have to wait and see. I’m of the view that an athletes initial reaction tells you a great deal about the injury. They usually know if they can’t play any more, if they shouldn’t play any more and the fact that Andy admits he wondered is cause for concern.
Sometimes these things have a way of fixing themselves so we’ll just have to wait and see if we get told what the scan says.
“The moment it happened I was definitely worried my tournament was over there and then, but we’ll just have to see how the ankle reacts over the next 48 hours.”
“Straight away it felt very sore and the trainer told me to take an anti-inflammatory before taping the ankle very tight to protect the ligament. He actually had to loosen it off a little bit after a few games. But that was really it – and then it comes down to whether you can move or not.”
“I was very relieved to come through because on another day, if he had moved me around a bit better, I might not have been able to get through it.”
“Obviously, I’ve been told to stay off the ankle as much as possible and it actually feels alright now, a few hours later.”
“I’ll ice it some more and probably have a scan before trying to hit some balls later in the day on Sunday.”
