Andy Murray to retire after 2024 Olympic Games

According to Howard Fendrich of the Associated Press, three-time grand slam tennis champion Andy Murray of Glasgow, Scotland is planning to retire after the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris. Murray, who won the 2012 United States Open, 2013 Wimbledon, and 2016 Wimbledon, will be retiring from the tennis at the age of 37.

One major reason why Murray is retiring is because of a hip problem that has been ailing him over the last decade. He has also been battling a back problem, and an ankle injury. It was Murray’s back that forced him to withdraw from the men’s singles draw at Wimbledon this year.

Murray did participate in the men’s doubles draw at Wimbledon this year, and competed with his brother Jamie. However on Thursday, the Murray brothers lost to the Australian duo of Rinky Hijikata of Sydney and John Peers of Melbourne, 7-6, 6-4. Hijikata and Peers, who were playing in their first doubles match together, will face the ninth seeds, Michael Venus of New Zealand and Neal Skupski of Great Britain, in the second round on Saturday.

Andy Murray however is not done at Wimbledon this year. That is because he is scheduled to team up with 2021 United States Open women’s singles champion Emma Raducanu of Great Britain in mixed doubles on Saturday. Murray and Raducanu are scheduled to face Marcelo Arevalo of El Salvador and Shuai Zhang of China in round one.

It should be noted that Murray is the only men’s singles tennis player to win two Olympic gold medals. He placed first at the 2012 Olympic Games in London and the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
