Murray Withdraws from Wimbledon Singles, Continues Doubles Competition

Wimbledon: Andy Murray Withdraws from Singles Draw Due to Back Injury

Andy Murray has officially withdrawn from the singles draw at Wimbledon due to a back injury that required surgery on June 22. The 37-year-old Scottish tennis player will not play his first round singles match against Tomas Machac on Tuesday.

Murray will instead focus on the doubles competition, where he has received an invitation to play alongside his brother Jamie. His first opponents will be the Australians John-Patrick Smith and Michael Venus.

The decision to withdraw from the singles draw was made to prevent a relapse that could have required further surgery. Murray’s withdrawal brings the total number of withdrawals from the tournament to eight, including Corentin Moutet, Alejandro Davidovich, Dominik Koepfer, Pablo Carreño, Aryna Sabalenka, Victoria Azarenka, and Ekaterina Alexandrova.

Murray’s impressive career achievements include 46 titles, including three Grand Slam titles, and the Davis Cup in 2015. He is also the only tennis player to have won two consecutive Olympic gold medals in singles, in London 2012 and Rio in 2016.

Eight Players Withdraw from Wimbledon Before the Debut

Wimbledon has set a record for withdrawals before the first match, with eight players already pulling out. The list of withdrawals includes Murray, Corentin Moutet, Alejandro Davidovich, Dominik Koepfer, Pablo Carreño, Aryna Sabalenka, Victoria Azarenka, and Ekaterina Alexandrova.
