The former world No. 1 will most probably need a surgery

Andy Murray is set to undergo back surgery after suffering an injury at Queen’s Club earlier this week. The 37-year-old injured his back during his second-round match against Jordan Thompson on Wednesday, forcing him to retire after just 23 minutes on court.

James Gray from iSport reported that the procedure will on Saturday, as Murray still hasn’t pulled out of Wimbledon.

Despite the impending surgery, Murray is still hoping to make a farewell appearance at Wimbledon, which begins on July 1. Although his participation is not yet ruled out, the surgery scheduled just over a week before the tournament casts doubt on his readiness for his favorite Grand Slam.

Additionally, Murray has hinted at potentially retiring at the upcoming Olympics in Paris, which starts on July 26. The timing of his recovery will be crucial as he aims to compete in what could be the final competitions of his illustrious career.

Murray had to deal with multiple injuries in the past years after having a serious hip surgery and then having to cope with multiple less serious setbacks. Just this year he had to recover from twisted ankle before injuring his back at Queen’s Club.
