'I will play the French Open' - Andy Murray confirms Roland Garros return

'I will play the French Open' - Andy Murray confirms Roland Garros return”

"The plan [is] to just play the French Open", Andy Murray said of his clay season plans.

But unlike his most recent Grand Slam singles outing at last year's Australian Open, a tearful opening-round defeat to Roberto Bautista Agut that left uncertainty about whether he'd compete again, Murray will depart NY hungry for more Grand Slam glory.

Which player the enforced overnight break will favour remains to be seen, with neither having momentum in a fourth set where there had already been four breaks of serve before Moutet missed his chances to clinch the third. Life is amusing, because I came here in 2011 as a kid.

In the match prior on Ashe, Williams subdued Margarita Gasparyan 6-2 6-4 for her second consecutive straight-sets win in NY.

"If I go ahead with the operation and I don't recover well from it, then I don't play again", said Murray.

The Scot may have dropped out early in the US Open but he still leaves with some wins.

Auger-Aliassime says he still understood why Murray's a great champion "You know, he would come up with good shots, good serve". But in the back of your mind you know you're up against Andy Murray.

"I would say that I'm more positive now than what I was a couple of months ago, that's for sure", Murrray said. "I've got to get this lead.' Because you never know what tricks he has in his pocket".

Meanwhile, in women's singles, U.S. veteran Serena Williams, 38, defeated her Russian opponent Margarita Gasparyan 2-0 with the sets of 6-2 and 6-4 on Thursday.

Murray showed signs of fatigue from the marathon in the preceding round. "I took a attractive photo on my iPhone, I remember this photo went viral and it sold for thousands of Euros on my IM accounts and I made plenty of money off a panorama of Arthur Ashe-I do remember very well".

Seeded No.2 in their respective draws, Kenin and Thiem progressed to round three on Thursday following straight-sets wins, yet in-form seeds Johanna Konta and Milos Raonic, plus two-time major champion Garbine Muguruza, crashed out in the second round.

"It wasn't that frustrating", Williams said after the match. In the third round, Serena will face fellow American, Sloane Stephens, victor in 2017.

Muguruza, the 10th seed and this year's Australian Open finalist, fell 7-5 6-3 to Tsvetana Pironkova, the Bulgarian who is playing her first tournament since Wimbledon 2017 after becoming a mother. "Always going to be intense".

"So the more I get exposed to playing with better players and practising with them, the better for me just now".
