Andy Murray to play Japan's Tatsuma Ito in opening round of French Open
Friday 25 May 2012
Andy Murray will play Japan's world number 69 Tatsuma Ito in the opening round of the French Open at Roland Garros.
The 24-year-old should not hold too many fears for Murray, and the same could be said for a second-round match against either Jarkko Nieminen or Igor Andreev, but from there things get considerably tougher for the world number four.
Australian teenager Bernard Tomic and unorthodox Ukrainian Alexandr Dolgopolov could await in rounds three and four, and tough Spaniard David Ferrer would have definitely been a man to avoid in the quarter-finals.
Murray must get through all that just to set up a semi-final rematch with Rafael Nadal, who beat him in straight sets 12 months ago.
