In an exclusive interview with ITV Sport, Andy Murray has defended himself again from Virginia Wade's accusation he is a 'drama queen' .
The British number one insists a study of the world's top 50 players showed that he and Roger Federer called for the trainer the least, and retire from matches the least.
Murray came through Thursday's second-round match against Jarkko Nieminen despite barely being able to move early in the match due to a back injury.
He was a set down and a break down but had treatment on court and battled back to book a third-round meeting against Colombia's Santiago Giraldo, which he blazed through in straight sets on Saturday.
Following that match against Giraldo Murray dropped into the ITV studio at Roland Garros, and was asked again presenter John Inverdale about Wade's criticism:
Inverdale said: "It's interesting the whole business about when you're in the public eye, people pass comment on you, that's just the nature of being in the public eye isn't it?
"And it's how you respond to that criticism that sometimes must be very difficult, whether you actually respond openly or whether you say nothing at all - how do you feel that you by and large have a responsiblity to respond, or actually do you feel that you'd rather ignore it and move on?"
Murray said: "A lot of the time I don't really say much. What's important for people to know is that we do a press conference before every single tournament, and after every single match, which compared with other athletes is a lot.
"Probably during the year around 100, 120 press conferences we do inevitably there's going to be some times when you might get asked a question or, you know, someone says something to you you might not like and you're going to respond fairly honestly if you feel passionately about something.
"The other day ... A couple of years ago I played [Andy] Roddick in Miami and he withdrew against me and a guy came up to me after the press conference. He'd been doing a study on the players in the top 50 I think, and when they call for the trainer, and when they retire in matches.
"Me and [Roger] Federer are the two guys that have called for the trainer the least on the tour, and me and Roger were also the players who have pulled out of the least matches on the tour.
"So for someone to suggest that I make a meal of injuries when I call the trainer out one of the least on the whole tour, and withdraw one of the least from matches on the whole tour, I felt like I had to stick up for myself.
"It's important for people to know that when there have been problems with me, they've been genuine."
Murray faces Frenchman Richard Gasquet, the 17th seed, in the fourth round at Roland Garros.
