Andy Murray has withdrawn from the French Open with the back injury that forced him out in Italy last week.



Britain's world number two retired in his first match in Rome and has opted against playing on the Paris clay.



Murray will hope to be fit for the start of the grass-court season at Queen's Club on June 10.



It will be the first Grand Slam tournament Murray has missed since Wimbledon in 2007.



The French Open, the second Grand Slam of the year, starts at Roland Garros on Sunday.
