Murray hurts right ankle, keeps playing

BY foxsports • May 28, 2011

Fourth-seeded Andy Murray of Britain twisted his right ankle early in the second set of his third-round match Saturday at the French Open against Michael Berrer of Germany.

Running forward to get to a drop shot while leading 6-2, 2-1, Murray turned his right foot awkwardly - although he did hit the ball and win the point. He immediately began hopping on his left foot, keeping weight off his right.

Murray was down on his back and covered his face with his arms, then sat up. He made it over to his changeover chair and tossed his racket. A trainer came out and taped up Murray's right ankle, and play resumed.

Murray is a three-time runner-up at Grand Slam tournaments.
