Three-time Grand Slam winner Andy Murray confirmed Wednesday that he is getting closer to retirement.

The two-time Olympic gold medalist said he's "likely not going to play past this summer," when he hopes to represent Great Britain at the Summer Games in Paris.

Murray, who turns 37 in May, addressed reporters after losing in straight sets to France's Ugo Humbert in the second round of the Dubai International.

"I get asked about it after every single match that I play, every single tournament that I play," he said. "I'm bored of the question, to be honest.

"I'm not going to talk more about that between now and whenever the time comes for me to stop. But, yes, I don't plan on playing much past this summer."

A former World No. 1, Murray has won 46 singles titles on the ATP Tour and earned more than $64 million in prize money. He won the U.S. Open in 2012 and Wimbledon in 2013 and 2016. His gold medals came at the 2012 and 2016 Olympics in London and Rio, respectively.
