Stan Wawrinka triumphed at Roland Garros in 2015 and has a 44-15 record at the clay-court major.

Former Champion Wawrinka, Murray Withdraw From Roland Garros

The Swiss star had played 16 consecutive editions

Stan Wawrinka has withdrawn from Roland Garros as he continues to recover from a left foot injury that required a procedure in March, and former World No. 1 Andy Murray has pulled out of qualifying.

Wawrinka, the former World No. 3, won the Roland Garros title in 2015, and he finished runner-up on the Parisian terre battue in 2017. Wawrinka owns a 44-15 record at the clay-court Grand Slam.

The Swiss star had a streak of 16 consecutive appearances at Roland Garros dating back to his major debut at the tournament in 2005. Last year, he lost a five-setter in the third round against home favourite Hugo Gaston.

Wawrinka last competed in Doha in March. The 36-year-old is currently the No. 24 player in the FedEx ATP Rankings.

Murray, the 2016 Roland Garros finalist, will now focus on the grass-court season. The Scot played doubles with Liam Broady at the Internazionali BNL d'Italia, where he also trained with the likes of Novak Djokovic. That was his only clay-court action this year.
