Wimbledon LIVE: Andy Murray makes fitness decision as Jack Draper issues ‘legacy’ comment | Tennis | Sport


Andy Murray will make a final decision on his Wimbledon participation this evening.

The two-time champion is scheduled to play on Tuesday but is not fully fit following surgery on a spinal cyst last week.

Murray is due to have one final practice set on Monday before making a decision on his ability to play at what is likely to be his final Wimbledon.

“The opportunity to play here again for the last time, that’s kind of it. This is a place that’s obviously been really good to me over the years,” the 37-year-old said.

“I guess the last few years you’ve had Serena finished playing, Roger finished playing, and Rafa obviously has spoken a lot recently about the struggles he’s gone through. Everyone has their idea of how they want to finish their career, how they would want it to go.

“My idea would have seen that happening probably at Wimbledon. Obviously I have the Olympics coming up. But I would love the opportunity to play here one more time. That’s what I’m looking to get out of it.

“I’m hoping for, when it comes to the end, maybe a bit of closure. I just want the opportunity to play one more time out there hopefully on Centre Court and feel that buzz. Whether afterwards I feel it was the right thing to do or not, I don’t know. But right now I feel like I want that opportunity.”
