Andy Murray’s participation at Wimbledon in doubt after back surgery | UK News | Sky News


The tennis star retired injured at Queen’s Club and has now had a procedure on a spinal cyst.

The ATP Tour, which is a governing body of the men’s professional tennis circuits, wrote on X on Sunday afternoon that the 37-year-old Briton was “sadly out of Wimbledon” after having back surgery on Saturday.
But the social media post was later deleted after it emerged it was put out following a report in the Telegraph, which suggests the two-time Wimbledon champion will be out for six weeks following a procedure on a spinal cyst.
Murray’s representatives have not officially confirmed the news and the Press Association understands he will wait to see how his recovery progresses over the next few days before making a decision about his participation at the Grand Slam event in southwest London, which starts a week on Monday.
The former British number one, who now has a world ranking of 129 in the men’s singles, has yet to give up hope of making a farewell appearance at this year’s Wimbledon ahead of a possible retirement after the Olympics.
