But Murray, who has a metal hip implant, said: “It’s part of the motivation to still be out there.

“I know, of course, that it will be incredibly difficult.

“But I still believe I have great tennis in me.

“I know it’s going to be even harder to win Wimbledon than it was five, six years ago.

“But yeah, I still believe, and I’m still working and training as hard as I can to try and reach that goal.”

When Murray triumphed in 2013, he became the first Briton to win the Wimbledon title since Fred Perry in 1936.

In January 2019, he had career-saving hip surgery.

Murray told Bloomberg’s Emma Barnett: “I knew there was a chance I wouldn’t be able to play once I had the hip replacement.

“I had to put up with that.

“I know that if I have to stop playing tennis tomorrow, I’ll be fine.”

Former GB number 1 Kyle Edmund, who has been out since two knee surgeries, will return in mixed doubles.
