Judy Murray tells the BBC that her son Andy will prioritize Wimbledon over playing Roland Garros.

Murray is contending with a back injury that forced him to pull out of Rome. He said on Wednesday that he is unlikely to play the French Open, but will take five days of rest before making a decision.

"Obviously the goal is to be in peak condition for Wimbledon," Judy Murray said. “It's something to do with his back but the scan will let him see what the injury is and what needs to be done.  Often you pick up niggles when you change surfaces. Each surface brings its own problems and challenges. This back issue has been rumbling for a week or so. It's not so easy on the clay. There is a lot more twisting and turning. He needs to be cautious and I'm sure Wimbledon will be his priority."
