Andy Murray’s Wimbledon career over as Emma Raducanu pulls out of mixed doubles

Andy Murray has been denied a final Wimbledon match after Emma Raducanu pulled out of their mixed doubles clash citing stiffness in her right wrist.

There had been great anticipation about Britain’s two most high-profile players teaming up to give Murray a final swansong at the All England Club.

They were scheduled to play Zhang Shuai and Marcelo Arevalo in the fourth match on Court One on Saturday but Raducanu withdrew several hours before.

A statement read: “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.

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

Raducanu has reached the fourth round of the women’s singles at Wimbledon, where she will play qualifier Lulu Sun on Sunday.
