Murray Eyes Olympic Games glory before retirement 

Great Britain’s Andy Murray hopes to compete at another Olympic Games before he retires after suggesting he may only have a “few months” left in his playing career.

Murray, who won gold in the men’s singles at London 2012 and Rio 2016 wants another shot at glory in the Olympics.

The three-time Grand Slam champion ranks his gold medal from 2012, when he defeated Roger Federer in the final, as the top achievement in his career.

Murray expressed doubts about his future in the sport as far back as 2019 but resurrected his career after having hip-resurfacing surgery.

The Scotsman lost his opening four matches of the 2024 season and said he was in a “terrible moment” but that he “won’t quit”.

The 2024 Paris Olympics starts on 24 July, less than two weeks after the end of Wimbledon which runs from 1 July to 14 July.

Murray will play fifth seed Ugo Humbert of France in the second round of the Dubai Tennis Championship on Wednesday after he claimed his second win of 2024 on Monday by defeating Canada’s Denis Shapovalov.
