Judy Murray has hit out after her son Andy’s medical details were “leaked” to the media by someone they “thought they could trust”.

The tennis coach says she is “disappointed” that details of the former World Number one’s spinal cyst operation was reported but insists he hasn’t ruled out taking part at Wimbledon.

Murray took to social media after reports stated that the former Wimbledon champion had been ruled out of this summer’s tournament over the operation.

Sharing a Twitter post of the article in question she wrote: “When your private medical details are leaked to the media by someone you thought you could trust. So disappointing.

“And – FYI – not ruled out yet.”

Earlier on Monday Andy Murray’s team also said that the 37-year-old was yet to make a decision on a potential Wimbledon swansong.

The Scottish star, who withdrew from his second-round match against Jordan Thompson at Queen’s on Wednesday, could face up to six weeks out, sparking concern about his fitness for the Paris Olympics and one last dance at SW19 which begins next week.

However, an update from his team said no decision has been finalised on whether or not he can compete at Wimbledon.

A statement from Murray’s team read: “Following his surgery on Saturday, Andy is continuing to work with his medical team to confirm when he will return to the court.

“At this stage, no decisions have been made and we will update further as soon as anything has been finalised.”

Murray struggled from the start against Thompson at Queen’s on Wednesday and pulled out after only five games.

He described feeling a weakness in his right leg and losing coordination. He sought on-court treatment after three games but soon decided he could not continue.

Murray has suffered from back injuries in the past, having undergone surgery in 2013, while also suffering from soreness in recent weeks.

Queen’s – a tournament he has won five times – was just his fourth event back in action following almost two months out with an ankle issue.

He said last week finishing his career at Wimbledon or the Olympics would be fitting for him, given he has won both competitions twice.
