Murray's Wimbledon career ends as Raducanu out


Andy Murray’s Wimbledon career is officially over after his mixed doubles partner Emma Raducanu withdrew from the format owing to wrist soreness.

Murray was defeated in the men’s doubles alongside his brother Jamie on Thursday, with that match proving to be his final at the Grand Slam in south west London.

Murray and Raducanu has been set to take on Zhang Shuai and Marcelo Arevalo as the final game on Court No. 1 on Saturday but the 21-year-old’s wrist pain proved too problematic to go ahead with the match. Raducanu underwent surgery on both wrists in 2023.

“Unfortunately I woke up with some stiffness in my right wrist this morning, so therefore I have decided to make the very tough decision to withdraw from the mixed doubles tonight,” Raducanu said.

“I’m disappointed as I was really looking forward to playing with Andy but I’ve got to take care.”

Murray, 37, won two Wimbledon men’s singles titles in 2013 and 2016, arguably the highlights of a glittering career.

Raducanu remains in the singles draw and will take on Lulu Sun of New Zealand in the round of 16 on Sunday.
