Judy Murray rails at leak and says Andy is not ruled out of Wimbledon yet

Estimated read time 2 min read

Judy Murray has hit out at her son Andy’s medical details being leaked to the media “by someone you thought you could trust” and reiterated that the two-time champion is not yet out of Wimbledon.

The 37-year-old’s participation in the tournament starting next Monday was mired in confusion on Sunday after he was prematurely ruled out. The governing body of the men’s game, the Association of Tennis Professionals, reported that Murray was “sadly out of Wimbledon” after undergoing back surgery on Saturday. However, the post on X was promptly deleted and it later transpired it was posted on the back of a report in the Telegraph, which suggests Murray will be out for six weeks following a procedure on a spinal cyst.

The PA news agency understands Murray is yet to make a decision on whether he will compete and will evaluate over the next few days.

Judy Murray criticised the leak. “When your private medical details are leaked to the media by someone you thought you could trust. So disappointing,” she posted on X. “And – FYI – not ruled out yet.”

The Briton has yet to give up hope of making a farewell appearance at this year’s tournament before a possible retirement after the Paris Olympics, but his playing at Wimbledon appears highly unlikely as he underwent surgery three days after withdrawing from his second-round match against Jordan Thompson at Queen’s on Wednesday.

The Telegraph reported that Murray is set for six weeks on the sidelines after the surgery and the ATP Tour – an official source – tweeted shortly after the story broke: “After an operation on a spinal cyst, Andy Murray is sadly out of Wimbledon. Rest up and recover Andy, we’ll miss seeing you there.”
