Wim­ble­don to erect statue of Mur­ray

Montreal Gazette - - SPORTS -

Wim­ble­don will pay trib­ute to re­tir­ing Scot­tish ten­nis ace Andy Mur­ray with a statue at its home, the tour­na­ment chief ex­ec­u­tive Richard Lewis said Sun­day. Mur­ray said last week he plans to re­tire be­cause of a hip in­jury that has kept him side­lined for most of the past 18 months. He said if pos­si­ble he would like to make Wim­ble­don, which takes place in early July, his last tour­na­ment. Mur­ray twice won Wim­ble­don. He is sched­uled to play in the Aus­tralian Open be­gin­ning Mon­day.
