Andy Murray intends to miss the French Open and the clay court season in its entirety.

The 34-year-old is in Holland for the Rotterdam Open and, as ever of late with the Scot, is doing his best to optimise his chances of playing healthily after a horror run of injuries over recent years.

As a result, Murray is opting to not play on clay this season.

"Right now I am not planning on playing through the clay," he said ahead of the Rotterdam tournament.

"The past couple of years, the clay has made issues worse, last year I had some issues at the beginning of the year, the clay didn't help, so I've spoken to my team about that and this year while I feel good and healthy, I don't want to take that risk.

"It's not that I wouldn't potentially play on clay in the future, last year I almost missed Wimbledon, was close to not playing the grass season, I'm not planning on playing the clay, I will still try to compete a bit during that period, I won't do nothing, that's my plan just now.

"I had a busy end of last year and hopefully the next couple of months, I won't take any risks and hopefully get a good build up to the grass season."
