Andy withdraws from Wimbledon

Monday, July 02, 2018

Andy Murray announced yesterday that we will not be attending Wimbeldon this year. He posted a statement on his social media channels saying:

"Hey everyone...

It is with a heavy heart that I'm announcing that I'll be withdrawing from Wimbledon this year.

I've made significant progress in practice and matches over the last ten days, but after lengthy discussions with my team, we've decided that playing best of five set matches might be a bit too soon in the recovery process. We did everything we could to try to be ready in time.

I will start practising on the hard courts from tomorrow and continuing with my rehab and recovery and I'm looking forward to the US hardcourt season.

Thanks for all the messages of support and I'm excited to finally be back playing after so long out."

We are all sad not to be seein him grace the grass courts of the All England club this year but are excited to see him take to the hard courts later in the year!
