Judy Murray has dismissed suggestions that her son Andy may have played his last match at Wimbledon, adding that he can still team up with brother Jamie in the men's doubles in future.

This year's Wimbledon was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic and the 134th edition of The Championships will now only be staged in 2021.

Former world No 1 Andy was touch and go to play at the All England Club this year after suffering an injury setback, but he now has more time to recover.

"I am sure (Andy) will (play again at Wimbledon)," Judy told BBC Scotland.

"It is three months until Wimbledon would have been on and then it will be another 12 months and Andy is still only 33 and look at (Roger) Federer! He is still going strong at 38, and there's Serena (Williams, who is also 38), so there is no reason, so long as he stays fit and healthy, why he can't play at Wimbledon again. It's the same for Jamie as well.

"One of the things that Jamie said recently, when he was asked what his goals are or what he still wants to achieve before the end of his career, he said that he wanted to be able to play a Wimbledon with his brother so let's hope that can happen one day."
