Wimbledon Craves Murray Magic, Djokovic In Action

Date:

Andy Murray launches his Wimbledon farewell alongside his brother Jamie in the men’s doubles yesterday as Novak Djokovic and Iga Swiatek target the third round.

Murray, the champion in 2013 and 2016, was desperate for one last crack at the singles but ran out of time after recent surgery to remove a spinal cyst.

The British former World Number One still has a chance to wave goodbye to his adoring fans in both the men’s doubles and mixed doubles as he treads the turf for a final time, 19 years after his Wimbledon debut.

“I’m hoping maybe for a bit of closure. I just want the opportunity to play one more time out there, hopefully on Centre Court, and feel that buzz”, the 37-year-old said before the tournament started.

Murray is a three-time Grand Slam singles champion but has form in the doubles teaming up with Jamie to help Britain win the 2015 Davis Cup

The Murrays will face Australian pair Rinky Hijikata and John Peers on Thursday, with the decibel count expected to soar.

Andy Murray is also scheduled to play mixed doubles with British compatriot and former US Open champion Emma Raducanu.

Seven-time champion Novak Djokovic is back in action against British rookie Jacob Fearnley on day four of the tournament.
