Andy Murray had already provided a clear clue about his future at the end of the match he won against Denis Shapovalov in Dubai. After the defeat against Ugo Humbert, the Scot let off steam in the press conference and revealed the possible date of his retirement, addressing the journalists present in the press room with a hint of disappointment.

"I probably won't play beyond this summer. I get the same question after every single game, I'm fed up. I won't talk about it anymore between now and when the time comes to stop," the Briton said, as reported by the Daily Express.

Murray subsequently went into detail by revealing his intention to play the Roland Garros (he has not participated in the Parisian Slam since 2020 - ed.), Wimbledon and the Olympics.

Murray revealed the date when he could retire

The Paris 2024 Olympic Games will take place from 27 July to 4 August: they could be, again according to what was communicated by the person concerned, the days in which Murray will say goodbye to tennis.

"I would like to play the Roland Garros. In recent years I have tried to prepare better for the grass season, but this does not guarantee you anything. In my career I have had experiences where I did not play the French Open in 2013 and I won Wimbledon, but also cases where I played in Paris and did well on grass like in 2016.

I don't think it makes a big difference. I would also like to participate in the Olympics. It was one of the best experiences of my career being part of the British team. Being the flag bearer in Rio was fantastic," he explained.
