Wimbledon is planning to honour two-time champion Andy Murray with a statue at the All England Club.

The Briton is aiming to retire after this year’s Wimbledon but Monday’s Australian Open first-round match against Roberto Bautista Agut could end up being the last of his career.

The club unveiled a statue of three-time champion Fred Perry in 1984 and chief executive Richard Lewis said it could do something similar for Murray.

“We are very fond of him,” Lewis told BBC Sport.

The three-time Grand Slam champion Murray, announced on Friday he is calling time on his career because of a hip injury.
