Andy Murray returns to Wimbledon for the first time since 2017: “Hopefully not my last time”

Andy Murray keert voor het eerst sinds 2017 terug naar Wimbledon: “Hopelijk niet mijn laatste keer”

After missing the 2018 and 2019 editions due to injuries and last year’s cancellation due to the corona pandemic, Andy Murray is finally back at Wimbledon. The two-time winner said Tuesday he hoped not to be able to play on London’s grass for the last time.

“It’s not that I worry that this would be my last Wimbledon,” the 34-year-old Scotsman looked ahead. “But I do think about it. I wouldn’t like it. I want to keep playing. I’ve had so many injuries and so many setbacks. You never know what’s coming. I therefore approach every tournament and every match as if it were my last. I don’t take anything for granted and always try to get the most out of it.”

“I want to be well prepared,” Murray continued. “Wednesday evening I go into my bubble and start training at Wimbledon. My training partners are Marin Cilic and Roger Federer later in the week. I want to play against top players on grass to prepare myself as best as possible.”

Murray, who has had two hip surgeries since his quarter-final place in 2017, won the Queen’s tournament last week against Frenchman Benoit Paire. He then lost to Italian Matteo Berrettini in the second round.
