Andy Murray plans to play at the 2023 Roland Garros explaining that he wants to play it at least one more time before calling it quits.
Murray didn't really speak about retirement but many took this quote as a hint of retirement which might happen after this year. The Brit was explaining his wish to play at the 2023 Roland Garros which is quite possibly the last time he will play at the event. He might retire this year or he might not but it's unlikely that his body will allow him to play much clay tennis moving forward.
Asked about his clay season, Murray said:
"My plan just now is to play in Rome and Madrid and hopefully the French Open, providing my body is good."

"You know, I'll do a training block after Miami on the clay. I'm going to do that in Europe somewhere for a few weeks, three or four weeks. I'll train, try and get my body used to the clay courts and to monitor how my body is feeling."
If his body respond well to clay and he doesn't feel bad, Murray plans to play a few of the bigger clay events. The goal is to be ready for the grass season so he won't push his body too much in order to avoid welcoming Wimbledon wiht an injury like last year:
"If it feels good, I'll play Rome, Madrid, and like I say, hopefully the French Open, because, yeah, the last -- I don't know how many times I have played it in the last five or six years, but when I have, like, I physically was not good the year I played against Wawrinka, and I can't remember too many other times I have played it in the last five or six years. So I'd like to get the opportunity to play it one more time before I stop playing. Whilst I feel physically really good, I would like to play there again."
