Andy Murray doesn’t believe continuing to compete at the French Open will harm his chances of playing at two key events earlier this summer.
The world number four who played on in Paris despite a back injury is sure it won’t harm his chance of featuring at Wimbledon or the Olympics.
Murray is set to face Colombia’s Santiago Giraldo in the third round and says if he had any concerns about his long-term fitness then he would have quit against Jarkko Nieminen.
Speaking about the back spasm he suffered, Murray said: "It's a completely different thing to what I had beforehand.
"So if it was the same thing, then, yes, I would be really, really concerned about Wimbledon and obviously the Olympics.
"But so long as what I'm getting told by doctors and the physios is, if it is just a muscle spasm, then that's nothing to be overly concerned by, (then I will play).
"But when they happen they are very difficult to shake off, especially when it's early morning.
"It takes a bit of time for your body to warm up and stuff. So I'm not doing any permanent damage by finishing a match like I did."
