The third major of the season could return from a special tribute to the Scot, but everything will depend on his decision, as confirmed by the organization of the tournament through its executive president, Sally Bolton.

"We’re ready, but it’s Andy’s decision. We’re ready for whatever he decides. We can adapt", said the manager of the British tournament that this year will be played from the first of July.

Andy Murray has won Wimbledon twice

Despite his great love for tennis, Andy Murray’s career is very close to the end. "Probably if I was going to finish my career I would rather finish at Wimbledon or an Olympic Games - to me that would probably be more fitting” – he stated.

“To get a chance to compete at a fifth one is a reason to stay motivated and continue playing. Like I said, a lot of it is based on results and physically how I'm feeling as well." he added.

In addition, Bolton detailed that in the future a statue could be built in tribute to the native of Dunblane in the facilities of the tournament, as it was done with another legend like Fred Perry.

The present is not the most positive for Andy Murray who comes from falling in the tournaments of Stuttgart, where he fell with the American Marcos Girón in two partials, a date held on grass and what is preparatory for Wimbledon.

Murray, who also won the 2012 US Open, will seek the best preparation to try to reach the 2024 Olympic Games, where he will try to compete for the last time after the gold medals he won in London 2012 and Rio 2016. Andy Murray is coming out of the Top 100 next week, for the first time since 2022.
