Andy Murray will not participate in the Wimbledon tournament, which begins on July 1. The ATP confirmed on Sunday that the two-time British winner was forced to withdraw due to back surgery.

Victim of a cyst in his spine, Murray (37) retired in the second round of the Queen’s tournament on Wednesday. He had surgery on Saturday, but the operation should leave him on the sidelines for six weeks, which would also call into question his participation in the Paris Olympic Games.

Qualifications: three Swiss in the running on Monday

Leandro Riedi (ATP 137), Alexander Ritschard (184) and Marc-Andrea Hüsler (204) will be in contention this Monday during the first day of Wimbledon qualifying. They need to win three matches to join Stan Wawrinka (93) and Dominic Stricker (153) in the main draw. The latter used his protected ranking so as not to have to go through the qualifications box.

Riedi will be opposed to the Argentinian Juan Pablo Ficovich (233), Ritschard to the Gstaad Champion Pedro Cachin (117) and Hüsler to the American Maxime Cressy (182). The women’s singles qualifying table will be known on Monday.

Sinner wins his first title on grass in Halle

The new world No. 1 Jannik Sinner won the first grass tournament of his career on Sunday in Halle, beating Hubert Hurkacz (ATP 9) in the final in two sets 7-6 (10/8), 7-6 (7/2) , one week before the start of Wimbledon.

This is the fourth trophy this season for the 22-year-old Italian, who took the lead in the ATP rankings after his semi-final at Roland Garros earlier this month, and the 14th of his career.
