Andy Murray Withdraws from Wimbledon Singles, Will Play Doubles with Brother Jamie in Farewell Appearance

Andy Murray has decided not to participate in the Wimbledon singles, choosing instead to bid farewell to the All England Club by competing in the doubles alongside his older brother, Jamie.

Murray, who plans to retire later this year, underwent back surgery 10 days ago.

The 37-year-old, a Wimbledon champion in 2013 and 2016, was set to play Tomas Machac of the Czech Republic on Centre Court on Tuesday.

Despite working incredibly hard on his recovery since his operation just over a week ago, Andy has made the very difficult decision not to play the singles this year,” Murray’s team said in a statement.

As you can imagine, he is extremely disappointed but has confirmed that he will be playing doubles with Jamie and looks forward to competing at Wimbledon for the last time.”

Former world number one Murray underwent surgery on Saturday to remove a cyst near his spinal cord, which was causing nerve pain in his right leg.
