Andy Murray had to battle with a back injury as he fought back from a set down to defeat Jarkko Nieminen in the second round of the French Open.
Murray, who is 33/1 with bookmaker to win the tournament, crashed 1-6 in the opening set as a sudden flare-up of an ongoing problem with his back left him virtually unable to get around the court.
However, he underwent treatment and recovered from 4-2 down in the second set to dominate the rest of the match, taking the next three sets 6-4 6-1 6-2 against his confused opponent.
The British number one faces the Colombian Santiago Giraldo in the third round, with Murray having won their one previous encounter.
“I don’t know how I won to be honest,” admitted the world number four.
“The guys were telling me to stop after the first set, we talked about it briefly before the match and I just decided to play. Sometimes guys can get nervous and you feel better, and a combination helped me get through.”
