Andy Mur­ray’s sin­gles career at Wim­ble­don has come to an end as the Scot has with­drawn from his first round clash with Tomas Machac. Despite work­ing hard to recov­er from a spinal cyst surgery just over a week ago, Mur­ray has tak­en the “very dif­fi­cult deci­sion” to not play the sin­gles event this year.

The 37-year-old is “extreme­ly dis­ap­point­ed” but will focus on com­pet­ing in the dou­bles tour­na­ment with his broth­er Jamie. Mur­ray’s last sin­gles match at Wim­ble­don was his sec­ond round defeat to Ste­fanos Tsit­si­pas last year, which now stands as his final appear­ance in the sin­gles draw at the All Eng­land Club.

The two-time Wim­ble­don cham­pi­on had been hope­ful of feel­ing “the buzz” of play­ing on Cen­tre Court one last time, but his recov­ery from the spinal cyst surgery has not gone as planned. Mur­ray under­went the oper­a­tion after strug­gling with the injury at the Queen’s Club tour­na­ment two weeks ago, which left him unable to prop­er­ly move on the court.

While dis­ap­point­ed, Mur­ray has decid­ed it is best not to com­pete in the sin­gles, as he does not want to end up in a sit­u­a­tion where he is unable to be com­pet­i­tive. The Scot will now shift his atten­tion to the dou­bles event, like­ly start­ing on Fri­day or Sat­ur­day, as he aims to bow out at Wim­ble­don with one final appear­ance on the famous grass courts.
