MURRAY STILL HOPES TO PLAY AT WIMBLEDON, PARIS OLYMPICS DESPITE SURGERY

Murray still hopes to play at Wimbledon and the Paris Olympics next month.

He decided against undergoing surgery to address a spinal cyst on June 22.

The former world No.1 will make a last-minute decision before he makes a statement.

The Wimbledon draw takes place on Friday.

“I feel that I deserve the opportunity to give it until the very last moment to make that decision,” Murray said.

“The rate that I’m improving just now, if that was to continue, then an extra 72 to 96 hours make a huge difference,” he added.

If Murray can’t play in men’s singles, there’s a better chance he can play in doubles with his brother Jamie.

That became possible as Wimble offers a later schedule for doubles matchs.

“Getting to play with Jamie in the doubles is something that obviously I have never done before,” he added.

ANDY LEANING MORE TO NOT PLAY BEYOND THE SUMMER

Furthermore, Andy Murray is leaning more toward not playing beyond the summer.

He said he is not looking beyond Pari, with a stint at the US Open in New York unlikely at the moment.

“All of the discussions and conversations that I’ve had with my team are that I’m not going to play past this summer,” Murray said.

“I have a family holiday booked the week after the Olympics,” he added.

Murray hinted that if he can manage to play both at Wimbledon and the Olympics, “that’s most likely going to be it, yeah.”

ANDY TRIES TO AVOID REPEAT OF QUEEN’S EARLY EXIT

Moreover, Murray is trying to avoid a repeat of his stint in Queens, where he took an early exit after the first round.

After he won his opening match, Murray was forced to withdraw.

This was after he experienced back pains down his right leg on June 19.

“Although the surgery is not a major surgery, the problem was a serious problem,” the two-time Wimbledon champion said.

“Because if the cyst continues to grow – obviously at Queen’s I basically lost the strength, coordination and everything in my right leg on my way to the court – you’re likely to have other complications as well,” he added.

That led to surgeons telling Murray to undergo the procedure after getting second opinions regarding his condition.
