Andy Murray has acknowledged the “uncertainty about the summer” while expressing his aspiration to compete in the Olympics.

Yet, he insists on not wanting to unjustly claim a spot on the Great Britain team, highlighting his commitment to merit-based participation.

The three-time Grand Slam champion hinted at the potential end of his illustrious career later this year, noting a desire not to extend his playing days beyond this summer. Despite planning a complete grass-court season with Wimbledon possibly marking his final appearance on the surface, Murray also expressed a keen interest in participating in the 2024 Olympics.

Scheduled after Wimbledon, the Paris Games will be hosted from July 27 to August 4 at Roland Garros, which some speculate could be Murray’s final professional appearance.

In a recent interview with The Times, the ex-world No 1 stressed his Olympic participation hinges on his ability to compete for a medal, underscoring his standards for competition.

“I would love the chance to play in another Olympics but also genuinely only if I felt like there was a chance of winning a medal,” he said.

“I’m also very conscious as well that because of how amazing my experiences at the Olympics have been, I would want to be there by right and not just take one of the other guys’ spots because it is a brilliant opportunity.”

“I don’t want to be in a position where I’m getting selected to play there just because it might be the last tournament that I play. That’s why there is a bit of uncertainty about the summer, because I’m not sure what will happen with that.”
