Andy Murray withdrew from Wimbledon singles competition Tuesday but will compete in doubles with his brother, Jamie.

The two-time Wimbledon champion from Great Britain recently underwent surgery to remove a spinal cyst.

"Unfortunately, despite working incredibly hard on his recovery since his operation just over a week ago, Andy has taken the very difficult decision not to play the singles this year," Murray's team said in a statement Tuesday.

Murray, 37, had been scheduled to face Tomas Machac of the Czech Republic on Tuesday.

Lucky loser David Goffin of Belgium replaced Murray and will take on Machac.

In previous discussions about his future, Murray has indicated that he is unlikely to continue his career beyond this summer's Paris Olympics.
