"But I want to play for a couple more years and hopefully be back competing at the top of the game and I need to bear that in mind when I am making decisions right now as well".

There have been plenty of ups and downs for the 31-year-old Scot over the last year.

Andy Murray won't play Wimbledon as he is not ready for the best of five sets match yet.

"It's incredible to be able to do that nowadays because the courts are not unbelievably fast", Murray said before himself withdrawing on Sunday with a hip injury.

"It feels a little bit odd coming into the tournament this year", Murray said Saturday after practicing at the All England Club.

Murray, 31, had looked likely to play this fortnight at the All England Club, but on Sunday shocked the tennis world by suddenly announcing he was pulling out because he did not feel he could compete properly, and wanted to concentrate on being ready for the USA hard-court season.

He added: "There's certain things that are still tricky and things I'm still trying to work through". He is pulling out mainly because he doubts he could compete in a best-of-five match.

"I'm not just going to keep playing for three or four years if I don't feel I can, or if I'm in pain, and not enjoying it".

The first match of his comeback came at the Queen's Club grass-court tournament on June 19. Murray will surely be in touch to congratulate Swan, who recently revealed she has spent more time discussing reality show Love Island with the star than she has talking tennis.

"I don't think I ever actually lost that competitive side".
