Having come out of retirement previously, Andy Murray looks set to bid his final farewell to his home Grand Slam at Wimbledon this summer.

British tennis fans have watched Murray produce some magical moments on the courts at SW19 over the years and this summer will provide the last chance to see the Scotsman in action at Wimbledon.

Murray Wishes Paris Bon Voyage

Losing in the first round of the 2024 French Open, Murray has already said his goodbyes to Roland-Garros. The 37-year-old, who is 66/1 in the Wimbledon 2024 betting to lift the trophy, suffered a straight-set defeat to fellow veteran Stanislas Wawrinka. It was a throw-back contest between two players who have been on the world stage over the last two decades with Wawrinka, who is 100/1 in the tennis betting to win the US Open this year, coming out on top 6-4, 6-4, 6-2.

Murray decided to avoid surgery on an ankle injury in order to take part in this year’s French Open and the former world number one also struggled with a back issue. The major tournament in Paris did not go as planned, but it was an opportunity to bid Roland-Garros farewell after also saying goodbye to the Australian Open at the start of the year.

After the disappointment of that early exit at the French Open, the hope is that Murray will be able to rest, recover and have no further injury setbacks before one last shot at the Wimbledon title. Having won the Wimbledon title two times in his career, the Scot has become synonymous with the event at the All-England Club for modern tennis fans. Claiming his maiden title at SW19 back in 2013, Murray went on to repeat the feat three years later. With a US Open crown in 2012 also to his name, the Dunblane star will go down as one of Britain’s greatest-ever players.

Murray Hoping To Roll Back The Years

Once ranked the best men’s player in the world and spoken in the same breath as the likes of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic when it came to Grand Slam contenders, Murray is the modern great of British tennis. While the likes of Federer, Nadal and Djokovic went on to add to their Grand Slam titles in the latter stages of their careers, injuries have prevented Murray from doing the same. Having to undergo hip surgery for the first time back in 2018, Murray was forced to go under the knife for another operation the following year.

An injury that many thought would be the end of his career, Murray has shown his love for the game with the fact he battled through and, six years after his first operation, he is still playing Grand Slam tennis. A player who has always worn his heart on his sleeve, many tennis fans will feel like they have been on this roller coaster journey that has been Murray’s career to date.

Wimbledon this July does to look to be the last chance for fans to see Murray take the court at SW19 and hopefully the veteran can progress through the opening rounds. Whatever happens at the All-England Club this summer, Murray’s legacy is secured and British tennis fans can give him the send-off at Wimbledon he deserves.
