Andy Murray unsure if he will compete at Wimbledon

Andy Murray

Andy Murray of Great Britain is slated to play at Wimbledon on Tuesday, but as of Sunday, the three-time Grand Slam winner has not decided if he will compete due to a back issue.

Murray, 37, a two-time Wimbledon champion who is retiring later this year, said he would likely decide by Monday evening.

Murray is scheduled to face Tomas Machac of the Czech Republic on Tuesday.

“I don’t think there’s one thing that I’m hoping for. When it comes to the end, I don’t know, maybe a bit of closure,” Murray told BBC Sport on Sunday. “I just want the opportunity to play one more time out there, hopefully on Center Court, and feel that buzz.”

Just over a week ago, the former World No. 1 had surgery to remove a cyst near his spinal cord that was causing nerve pain in his right leg. He said he is not sore but doesn’t have all the feeling back in his leg yet.

Murray may wait until later in the week to play when he is scheduled for a doubles match with his older brother Jamie.

Murray hit at Wimbledon on Saturday and played a practice set on Sunday with fellow British player Jack Pinnington-Jones.

“It’s getting better every single day,” Murray said. “I want to give it every single chance that I can to get there.”
