French Open semi finalist Andy Murray is considering skipping next week's pre-Wimbledon tournament at Queen's Club to rest his damaged right ankle.

The Scottish player survived the French Open on painkillers and anti-flammatory pills. He sustained a partial tear of the ankle tendon during last Saturday's third-round match against Germany's Michael Berrer.

With only a fortnight's gap between the French Open and the Wimbledon Championships, Murray has to give his ankle some rest.

"I will have to wait and see about Queen's as I am not 100 per cent that I will play there," he was quoted as saying by The Daily Telegraph.

The daily reported that Murray will take the decision after consulting his physiotherapist, Andy Ireland.

Ireland, who has not been in Paris, could suggest that Murray stops taking the pills, or he could advise that the beaten semi finalist carries on with the medication.
