Andy Murray ‘already looking forward to Wimbledon next year’ following coronavirus cancellation
Andy Murray has dismissed suggestions the cancellation of Wimbledon this year may force him to ‘rethink’ his comeback plans.
Murray has been out of action since November with an injury relating to his major hip resurfacing surgery last season.
He had been gearing up for a return at the Miami Open before the coronavirus outbreak ground tennis to a halt, and had it gone well was expected to play in the singles at Wimbledon for the frst time in three years.
However, now he must wait at least one more year to make his return to the singles arena at SW19, prompting many analysts to suggest it may make him rethink his future.
“[It’s] very sad that the Fever-Tree Championships and Wimbledon have been cancelled this year,” Murray wrote on Facebook.
“But with all that is going on in the world right now, everyone’s health is definitely the most important thing!
