Tennis legend Murray is about to retire

It is quite possible that 37-year-old Andy Murray will end his successful career at Wimbledon or at the Olympic Games.

The three-time major winner and two-time gold medalist had already said last February that it was unlikely that he would continue playing after the summer. "I would rather stop at Wimbledon or at the Olympics, that would probably be more appropriate," said the Olympic champion from 2012 in London and 2016 in Rio to BBC Sport.

However, since Wimbledon is scheduled for July 1-14 and the Scot was only nominated for the games in Paris on Sunday, a departure from Wimbledon seems unlikely. "I had great experiences and memories at Wimbledon, but having the chance to be part of the British Olympic team for a fifth time is a motivation to keep playing," said the former world number one.

"In many careers, retirement is something you celebrate and look forward to. That's not the case for me, I love playing tennis," Murray assured.
