Jamie Murray Wants to Play in His 40s

Jamie Murray believes hitting the landmark of 500 tour-level wins is “a cool thing to have achieved” and hopes to keep playing into his 40s.

Murray, 36, achieved the milestone of partnering with Matthew Ebden at the recent Rolex Paris Masters.

The Scot has won seven Grand Slam titles in men’s and mixed doubles.

“To be honest, I had absolutely no idea I was on 499 or was even close to that,” Murray recently stated.

“It is a cool thing to have achieved. It probably just means I have been playing forever, but I am still ultra-competitive. I still love playing, love traveling, and really enjoy the tour, and hopefully, I can rack up a few more wins before I call it quits.

“We have been on tour a long time now. I could probably play, maybe until I am 40, maybe 41. If I look after myself and my body feels good, I will play as long as I can, as long as I feel like I am still competitive and in with a chance to win big tournaments.”
