Following a challenging period at the French Open, Andy Murray has made strategic decisions regarding his grass court schedule as he prepares for Wimbledon. Murray confirmed that he would skip the Surbiton Trophy this year in light of a back issue he has been managing since the French Open.

Despite a first-round exit in singles at Roland Garros, Murray teamed up with Dan Evans for the men’s doubles, but faced a tough defeat to Thiago Seyboth Wild and Sebastian Baez. Reflecting on his decision to skip Surbiton, where he clinched the title last year, Murray expressed the difficulty of the choice but emphasized the necessity agreed upon by his team.

Looking ahead to Wimbledon, Murray hinted at a potential doubles partnership with his brother, Jamie, to enhance his preparation for the tournament. The two-time Wimbledon champion sees this as an opportunity not only to compete but also to secure a place in the Olympics alongside his brother.

Murray explained his doubles participation at the French Open as a means to gear up for Wimbledon and potentially the Olympics, aiming to put himself in contention for a spot on the Olympic team. Despite the early exit in doubles at Roland Garros, Murray expressed no regrets, highlighting the positive experience gained and the chance to focus on preparing for the upcoming grass court season.
