Incredible but true what happened in the last few hours: after ATP had announced Andy Murray's withdrawal from the Wimbledon Championships, the Scot's team disowned the words of the Association of Tennis Professionals, confirming that the 3-time Slam champion has not yet decided (much less made official) his absence or presence at the London fortnight.

The news arrived yesterday and it seemed like the worst possible news for Murray. Forced to retire during the match against Jordan Thompson at the ATP 500 tournament at Queen's, the Scotsman had to undergo back surgery for a spinal cyst with the hope of being able to recover as quickly as possible.

However, things may not go according to plan. According to what was reported by The Telegraph, Murray is expected to be out of action for at least six weeks, consequently missing both Wimbledon and the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

The ATP also thought about fueling doubts about his presence at Wimbledon and, in a post, had given the withdrawal of the 2-time Championships champion as certain.

"After surgery on a spinal cyst, Andy Murray is sadly out of Wimbledon. Get some rest and recovery Andy, we'll miss seeing you there," said the post which has since been deleted. The communication agency that manages Murray has in fact denied the news, explaining that no official decision has yet been made and that next week will be decisive.

Murray's intention, as specified in a recent press conference, was to say goodbye to tennis at Wimbledon - the Slam which he won twice in his career - and at the Olympics, where he won two historic gold medals.
