Andy Murray Hopes to Compete in the Olympics before Retiring

Andy Murray from Great Britain is looking forward to participating in another Olympic Games before he ends his career.

On Monday, the 36-year-old hinted that he might have only a “few months” remaining in his playing career.

Nevertheless, Murray, the gold medalist in the men’s singles at London 2012 and Rio 2016, expressed his desire for another opportunity to compete in the Olympics during an interview on BBC Radio 4’s Today Programme.

“I’m looking forward to the opportunity to compete at another one,” Murray expressed.

The three-time Grand Slam champion considers his gold medal from 2012, where he beat Roger Federer in the final, as the pinnacle of his career.

Murray had concerns about his future in the sport as early as 2019 but made a comeback after undergoing hip-resurfacing surgery.

“I will likely make a statement before I compete in my final match and tournament,” he mentioned, hinting at a future announcement.

“I’m not sure if I will share any updates in advance.”

The Scotsman suffered defeats in his first four matches of the 2024 season and described it as a challenging period, but he remains determined not to give up.

“There isn’t a correct method to end your career, and everyone is unique, so what works for Federer might not work for Nadal, and might not work for Djokovic,” he stated.

Murray is set to face fifth seed Ugo Humbert of France in the second round of the Dubai Tennis Championship on Wednesday following his victory over Canada’s Denis Shapovalov, marking his second win of 2024.
