Andy Murray won’t be rushed into a decision on whether to make the summer Paris Games his last Olympics, with the two-time medallist prepared to wait until the last moment to see how he pulls up.

Britain’s 36-year-old tennis icon already owns medals from 2012 and 2016.

However after all but confirming that this summer will be his last as an ATP professional, the former No. 1’s decision will depend completely on his form at the time.

The 62nd-ranked three-time Grand Slam winner has had a patchy start to 2024, failing to pass a second round at seven events played.

Every week is a new chapter for the Scot who is still fighting on to remain relevant on court.

“I would love to have the opportunity to play in another Olympic Games, but only if I felt there was a chance of winning a medal,” he said.

“I’m also very aware that because of how incredible my experiences at the Olympics have been; I would like to be there by right and not just take the place of one of the other players from my country.”

Murray indicated he might be leaning towards Paris double participation if his game holds up.

“We have the best doubles players (Top 10 Joe Salisbury and Neal Skupski) and also Jack Draper, Cameron Norrie and Dan Evans in singles. 

“I don’t want to be in a position where I’m selected to play just because it might be the last tournament I play. 

“That’s why there’s a little bit of uncertainty about the summer, because I’m not sure what’s going to happen with that.”
