Andy Murray turned his right ankle during his third round match today and dropped to the court in pain before requiring lengthy on-court treatment for the injury. He ended up defeating Michael Berrer 6-2, 6-3, 6-2 but his participation in his next match against Victor Troicki is not certain.
At 2-1 in the second set Muzz ran for a drop shot by Berrer and turned his right ankle. He hopped to the side of the court before lying down in apparent agony. Here's a clip of the incident:
The Brit baller told the BBC in a video interview that he felt "a pretty big, sorta, click" after turning his ankle. Oh boy. He's lucky Berrer felt badly enough to stop using the drop shots and running him around or he might well have been out of the tourney. I'm sure if he makes it to his next match the Serb won't be so kind - and that's still a big 'if'.
