Andy Murray Player Profile
Andy Murray in action against Rafael Nadal in the final of the Mutua Madrid Open
Andy Murray arrives in Paris unbeaten and in the best form of his life on the red dirt.
Recently married Murray picked up his first two career titles on clay in May, with his maiden win in Munich followed six days later with a Masters 1000 crown in Madrid.
Beating ‘King of Clay’ Rafael Nadal in the Madrid final will mean Murray enters Roland Garros as a title favourite behind in-form Novak Djokovic.
But the British No 1 has struggled in Paris in the past, and the French Open is the only Grand Slam where he hasn’t gone further than the semi-finals.
In 2014, Murray again fell in the last four, suffering a crushing defeat to eventual winner Nadal.
This year looks like it will be different for the Scot. With confidence high under the guidance of Amelie Mauresmo and Jonas Bjorkman, Murray is one to watch.
A natural counter-puncher who prefers baseline exchanges, Murray also possesses great anticipation and a fantastic change of pace.
