Andy Murray has not yet made a decision about Wimbledon 2024 after back surgery

Andy Murray has not yet made a decision on whether he will be fit enough for his planned departure from Wimbledon next week.

The 37-year-old Briton underwent surgery over the weekend for a back problem.

Murray will retire later this year and is hoping for one final appearance at Wimbledon, where he won two of his three Grand Slam titles.

“Following his surgery on Saturday, Andy continues to work with his medical team to confirm when he will return to the court,” Murray's team said in a statement.

“No decisions have been made at this time and we will keep you updated as soon as something is finalized.”

Wimbledon, where Murray became the first British men's singles champion in 77 years with his victory in 2013, begins on July 1.

Before his back problems flared up again at Queen's last week, the Scot had planned to play in the singles and doubles at the All England Club alongside his brother Jamie.

Murray has also been selected to represent Great Britain at the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris.

The tennis event begins on July 27 on the clay courts of Roland Garros.

Murray, also a two-time Olympic champion, said in early June that retiring at Wimbledon or the Olympic Games would be “appropriate” given his success at both events.

He had previously stated that he “doesn't want to play much beyond the summer”, but did not confirm which would be his last tournament.
