Andy Murray Reportedly Eyes Wimbledon or Paris Olympics for a Fitting Farewell

Andy Murray French Open

Illustrious British tennis star Andy Murray has hinted that his retirement from professional tennis might come as soon as this summer, potentially at Wimbledon or the Paris Olympics. The 37-year-old has had a remarkable career, bagging 46 titles, three of which are Grand Slams.

Two of his Grand Slams were won on the Centre Court of Wimbledon in 2013 and 2016. He stood on the highest podium twice at the Olympics, winning in London (also held at Wimbledon) in 2012 and Rio in 2016.

In an interview with BBC Sport at Queen’s Club, Murray explained his preference for where to retire. He said, “Probably if I was going to finish my career I would rather finish at Wimbledon or an Olympic Games–to me that would probably be more fitting.”

Despite his fondness for these prestigious events, he has not yet confirmed which tournament will mark his final appearance. He further expressed doubts about participating in the US Open or the Davis Cup later this year. “I don’t think so,” said Murray.

“My plans haven’t really changed. I’m not planning to play much past this summer.”

“To get a chance to compete at a fifth one is a reason to stay motivated and continue playing,” Murray said about his Olympics prospects. “Like I said, a lot of it is based on results and physically how I’m feeling as well.”

As Murray continues to compete at Queen’s Club, his immediate focus remains on his performance and physical condition. “I’ll see how I feel in the next couple of weeks,” he said. “There are lots of things to factor into retirement from sport. I think in lots of careers, retirement is something you celebrate and people really look forward to that day – that’s not something I feel. I love playing tennis.”

For now, as the tennis world awaits the final chapters of his tremendous career, fans can hope to witness more moments of brilliance from the Scottish legend. He will play Alexei Popyrin Tuesday at Queen’s Club.
