Tomic injury hands Murray walkover in Barcelona
World number one Andy Murray moved into the last 16 of the Barcelona Open without hitting a ball on Wednesday as Bernard Tomic pulled out of their second round clash with a back injury.
Murray was a late entry in the Catalan capital as he seeks time on court ahead of next month’s French Open after returning from a wrist injury.
However, the Scot will have to wait until Thursday to begin his campaign against the winner of an all-Spanish matchup between Feliciano Lopez and Albert Montanes.
Rafael Nadal also starts his quest for a 10th title in Barcelona later on Wednesday against Brazilian Rogerio Dutra Silva.
