Aryna Sabalenka and Andy Murray pull out of Wimbledon singles

Two significant players have withdrawn from the singles draw at Wimbledon. Those who have withdrawn from the tournament are Belarus’s Aryna Sabalenka and Great Britain’s Andy Murray. Sabalenka has a shoulder injury and Murray has a back injury.

According to Howard Fendrich of The Associated Press, Andy Murray is planning on playing doubles with his brother Jamie Murray. There is speculation that this could be Andy Murray’s final Wimbledon before retirement. Jamie Murray at 38 years old, is considered an elite doubles player. In 2016, he was first in the world, and won the Australian Open and United States Open with Bruno Soares of Brazil.

Andy Murray is a three-time major champion. He won three grand slam singles tournaments himself–the United States Open in 2012, and Wimbledon in 2013 and 2016.

Twice before Jamie Murray and Andy Murray have teamed up to win an ATP event in doubles. They beat Max Mirnyi of Belarus and Mahesh Bhupathi of India to win the 2010 Valencia Open in Spain, 7-6, 5-7, [10-7]. Then they beat Frantisek Cermak of the Czech Republic and Filip Polasek of Slovakia to win the 2011 Japan Open, 6-1, 6-4.

Sabalenka, meanwhile, was a clear contender to win Wimbledon due to her fine start to the season in women’s tennis. In January, she won the Australian Open for the second straight year. Sabalenka beat Qinwen Zhang of China in the final, 6-3, 6-2. The fact that Sabalenka is withdrawing from Wimbledon is no significant surprise. That is because she has already withdrawn from the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris later this month.
