PARIS: Former world number one Andy Murray has received a wild card entry into the French Open which is slated to begin from September 27. Last month, Murray was also given a wild card for the US Open where he reached the second round in his first Grand Slam after hip surgery last year. He had registered 4-6, 4-6, 7-6 (7/5), 7-6 (7/4), 6-4 come-from-behind victory against 49th-ranked Japan's Yoshihito Nishioka before losing to 15th seed Canadian Felix Auger-Allassime. Along with Murray, seven other players have been given a free pass into the main draw of the clay Grand Slam. The 33-year-old last appeared at the Roland Garros three years ago when he lost to Stan Wawrinka in a marathon five-set last-four encounter. In women's singles, Eugenie Bouchard and Tsvetana Pironkova have also received wild cards into the main draw at Roland Garros. IANS
