Andy Murray had been drawn to face Stan Wawrinka in the first round of the French Open.

Wawrinka, a former champions at Roland Garros, was Murray’s last opponent in Paris three years ago when the pair played an epic five-set semi-final.

Murray has said that match “turned out to be the end” of his right hip, before undergoing surgery and beginning the long road back to fitness.

Wawrinka also suffered injury trouble, needing an operation on his knee after that tournament.

The pair have met since, with Murray winning at the European Open in Antwerp last October.
