Following his devastating defeat to Stan Wawrinka at the 2024 Roland Garros event, Great Britain's Andy Murray may see Wimbledon as his only chance for a good Grand Slam performance, according to analyst Mats Wilander.
Wawrinka defeated the three-time Grand Slam champion on Monday in Paris, recording an easy 6-4 6-4 6-2 victory. In what could have been his final match at the French Open, Murray was unable to solve the Wawrinka riddle as his Swiss opponent simply outplayed him during the first round encounter.
With Roland Garros out of the way, Murray will now turn his attention to Wimbledon. The Scot has found success at his home Grand Slam tournament, winning the title in 2013 and 2016. Eurosport analyst Wilander believes the former World No.1 can bounce back from his poor showing in Paris and even reach the latter stages of Wimbledon this summer.
"Wimbledon is Andy's best chance at having one last good Grand Slam tournament, maybe get to the quarters or even the semis,” the Swede, a three-time French Open champion, told Eurosport. “He's played well there in the last couple of years.
“But clay is easily the most difficult surface to play on, because you have to take that extra step. I think this summer is unbelievably important, Wimbledon, the Olympics - can he get there? But Roland-Garros next year, I'd be very, very doubtful. I think it all depends on Wimbledon, if he can play well there; why not play for another couple of years?”
