The former no.1 Andy Murray hasn't decided on his participation in Wimbledon 2024 after a successful back injury on Monday, June 24. The ATP has earlier announced that Murray will miss the upcoming Grand Slam event but Great Britain's tennis captain Leon Smith revealed that Murray hasn't made any decision yet.

Murray, the two-time Wimbledon champion, withdrew from the Queen's Club Championships due to an injury in his second-round fixture against Jordan Thompson on Wednesday. He went through a minor back procedure on Saturday and the ATP posted a Tweet about the player's withdrawal from Wimbledon.

But Smith told the BBC that Murray has yet to decide on his participation in Wimbledon. Murray, 37, might be making his last appearance in Wimbledon despite repeatedly squashing off his retirement talks in the media in recent weeks. 

"He obviously went through a procedure yesterday [Saturday] and you have to wait and see now," Smith told the BBC. "My understanding is no decision has been made and let's hope for the best for Andy."

However, the fans were confused after ATP's post on their official X handle on Sunday. ATP confirmed that the three-time Grand Slam winner has withdrawn from Wimbledon after his back procedure.

"After an operation on a spinal cyst, Andy Murray is sadly out of Wimbledon," the ATP had said earlier on Sunday. "Rest up and recover Andy, we'll miss seeing you there."

Notably, Murray was also selected for Great Briatian's men's singles team for the upcoming Paris Olympics 2024 after Emma Raducanu rejected a wild card entry. Murray won a Gold medal after famously beating Roger Federer in the men's singles final at the London Olympics in 2012. He also bagged the Gold in the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro to become the first tennis player, male or female, to clinch two Gold medals in the Olympics.
