Injury nearly made me quit - Murray
- From the section Tennis
British number one Andy Murray reveals his coaching team were "telling him to stop" while he suffered an injury scare during his French Open third-round victory over Finland's Jarkko Nieminen.
The fourth seed had to call for the trainer three times because of a "muscle spasm" in his back and "was thinking about stopping the match" at the end of the first set, but fought back from behind to seal a 1-6 6-4 6-1 6-2 win.
Speaking to BBC Radio 5 live's Jonathan Overend after the match, Murray says he can recover from the injury and continue in his quest for his first Grand Slam title.
