    Wimbledon: Andy Murray to Participate in Doubles at His Last Appearance

    Andy Murray, a renowned tennis player, will exclusively participate in doubles matches during his final Wimbledon tournament following a successful back surgery.

    The Two-time Wimbledon champion Andy Murray will exclusively participate in doubles during his final appearance at the All England Club due to his withdrawal from singles on Tuesday, just over a week after undergoing back surgery.

    Murray, aged 37, withdrew from the singles competition just hours before his scheduled match against Mr. Tomas Machac on Centre Court..

    “Unfortunately, despite working incredibly hard on his recovery since his operation just over a week ago, Andy has taken the very difficult decision not to play the singles this year,” his management team said in a statement. “As you can imagine, he is extremely disappointed but has confirmed that he will be playing in the doubles with Jamie and looks forward to competing at Wimbledon for the last time.”

    On June 22nd, Murray underwent a surgical procedure to excise a cyst from his spinal cord..

    He has expressed his intention to retire following the conclusion of the upcoming Paris Olympics, scheduled to commence later this month.

    He has experienced physical ailments in recent years, notably a severe hip condition necessitating multiple medical interventions.

    Murray was forced to withdraw from a second-round match at the grass-court tournament at Queen’s Club in London last month due to a medical issue. He later revealed that a cyst was compressing a nerve in his back, resulting in numbness in his right leg.


    Mr. Murray has achieved three significant championship victories. He won the U.S. Open in 2012 and Wimbledon in 2013 and 2016. Notably, his 2013 Wimbledon triumph marked a historic moment, as he became the first British male to secure the Wimbledon singles title in 77 years.

    He reached No. 1 in the ATP rankings and is the only player with two consecutive tennis gold medals in Olympic singles. He won at London in 2012 — when the Summer Games matches were at the All England Club — and at Rio de Janeiro in 2016.

    Murray underwent hip operations in 2018 and 2019. While he thought he would need to retire after the second surgery, in which he received a metal hip implant, Murray eventually returned to action.

    Since March, he has been experiencing difficulties, such as a torn ligament in his left ankle during the Miami Open.

    In May, Murray suffered a first-round defeat at the French Open.

    Murray has engaged in training sessions at the All England Club in the recent past. Additionally, he has undergone a series of medical evaluations to ascertain his ability to participate in what is widely anticipated to be his final appearance at the Wimbledon tournament.
