Wimbledon 2024: Andy Murray hoping to be fit and will make decision on Monday

Britain’s Andy Murray says he is fighting to be fit for Wimbledon because he wants “a bit of closure” at the All England Club before retiring later this year.

The two-time champion, 37, does not plan to play much past the summer and his preparations for a Wimbledon farewell have been dented by a back issue, which required surgery.

Murray says he will decide on “Monday evening” whether he will play in the singles, although he admits it is “more likely” he will only play doubles.

The world number 115 is due to play 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,” said Murray, who won Wimbledon in 2013 and 2016.

“I just want the opportunity to play one more time out there, hopefully on Centre Court, and feel that buzz.

“Last year, I wasn’t planning on it being my last year on the tour. I wanted to come back and play again, whereas this year I have no plans to do that.”
