Wimbledon will have a statue of Andy Murray when he retires.

The 2013 and 2016 Champion is set to receive the recognition when he retires according to chairman Philip Brook.

Talk of championing the 32-year-old arose in January when the Scot raised the possibility of his retirement at the Australian Open due to a persistent hip-injury.

The feat would see the three-time Grand Slam winner honoured in the same manner as Fred Perry, whose bust is at the Centre Court entrance.

“Our thought all along is that we want to recognise Andy's significant achievements here at Wimbledon in an appropriate way and at an appropriate time,” Brook said.

"We think an appropriate time is to unveil something when he retires.

“We are working on it.

“We have done some work already on it and there is still more work to do."

The chairman insisted he was keen not to ‘retire Andy too early’ as the man form Dunblane plots a comeback following successful hip surgery.

Murray has featured in the mixed doubles at Wimbledon this year, forming a superstar partnership with Serena Williams.

Despite being knocked out in the third-round Murray remained positive about his recovery, and having watched the men’s draw feels like he could make a competitive return.

“The most positive thing is that my body felt good.

“It’s a lot of physical work now trying to get stronger really.

“I’d like to play the same way as I’ve always played because it’s been successful.

”There’s things I’ll need to change and adapt.

“It does seem like there’s a few more of the bigger guys, the bigger hitters, which are out there, which is a positive thing, because that means shorter points.”
