Murray injures back; Nadal wins in Rome

ROME - Back pain forced Andy Murray to retire midway through his second-round match at the Italian Open on Wednesday.

He may have to sit out the French Open, too.

Rafael Nadal began his bid for a seventh Rome title by cruising past local hope Fognini of Italy, 6-1, 6-3, in just 61 minutes, and two-time defending champion Maria Sharapova eased past Spanish qualifier Garbine Muguruza, 6-2, 6-2.
