After withdrawing from Wimbledon, Andy Murray maintains his perfect record in the first round at the All England Club with a 15-0 record. The three-time Grand Slam champion hasn't had a strong run at Wimbledon since reaching the quarterfinals in 2017. Since then, he has only managed four victories in his next three appearances in the main draw.
Murray debuted at Wimbledon in 2005, reaching the third round at the age of 18, and a year later signaled his potential by reaching the fourth round. After missing the tournament in 2007 due to a wrist injury, Murray began a streak of 10 consecutive appearances reaching at least the quarterfinals, including titles in 2013 and 2016, and a runner-up finish in 2012.

In his 15 Wimbledon appearances, Murray has accumulated 61 wins and 13 losses (82%), making it his best-performing Grand Slam. The Scot has never lost in the first round of the tournament, a feat he hasn't achieved in any other Grand Slam.
The former world No. 1 announced his withdrawal from the 2024 Wimbledon just hours before his match against Tomas Machac in the first round. The Czech will now face lucky loser David Goffin, a former quarterfinalist who lost in the final round of qualifying to Mattia Bellucci.
It was revealed on Tuesday morning that Murray opted not to participate in the doubles draw following his back injury at the Queen's Club Championship, which required minor surgery. However, Murray will still compete in the doubles draw alongside his brother Jamie after receiving a wild card from the organizers, while also considering the upcoming Olympic Games, which start in three weeks.
