Andy Murray on French Open entry list but Emma Raducanu not in the draw

Andy Murray has been included in the entry list for next month’s French Open but Emma Raducanu, fresh from her success in Great Britain’s qualification for the Billie Jean King Cup finals, may yet need a wild card for Roland Garrros.

The 36-year-old Murray has been struggling with injury since he was forced to withdraw from last year’s French Open and he ruptured ankle ligaments at the Miami Open last month. But the former Wimbledon champion is listed at 56 in the 99 players named with five weeks to go before the qualifying rounds begin.

Raducanu endured at torrid last eight months of 2023 but the former US Open champion has a protected ranking of 103 and is the fifth alternate. Without players dropping out, the 21-year-old would need a wildcard or to come through qualifying.

The French Open starts on 26 May.
