Andy Murray Undecided About Wimbledon Open Participation

Former British number one Andy Murray is uncertain about his participation at the upcoming Wimbledon Open.

SW19 starts on Monday, July 2, with warm-up tournament scheduled to begin at Eastbourne next week.

According to the two-time Wimbledon Open winner, he could feature at Eastbourne and skip next month’s Grand Slam tournament in London.

When asked about SW19 after his round of 16 defeat to Krygios at Queens, the Scot said: “I need to wait and see what happens.”

“I don’t know exactly what’s best for me just now.” He stated further.

On his upcoming plans, the Scot said: “I won’t rule anything out just now.”

“I wouldn’t rule out playing Eastbourne and not playing Wimbledon.

“I wouldn’t rule out playing a tournament next and trying to get matches in an exhibition tournament as well to get ready for Wimbledon.

“If I wake up on Wednesday morning and I really don’t feel good then that’s obviously not a great sign.”

Murray, who’s ranked 156th, was beaten in three sets by Australian Nick Kyrgios.

The world number 21 saw off 2-6 7-6 (7-4) 7-5 for his first win over the three-time Grand Slam champion in six meetings.

On his performance, Murray said: “I thought I did OK.”

“I thought my level at times was good, sometimes not so good.

“I’m happy I got out there and competed and performed respectably.” He concluded.

Krygios praised Murray’s performance despite ending up on the losing end before saying that he’s fit enough to be a part of next month’s Wimbledon Open.

He said: “If he is feeling good then I don’t see any reason why not.”

“There is only a handful of guys who can really play on grass. He’s got a good chance.” He added.
