Murray has to be at Wimbledon - Roddick

Andy Murray has to be at Wimbledon this year, even if it is in a ceremonial role, says former US open champion Andy Roddick.

Murray announced on Friday he plans to retire after the tournament this summer because of a hip injury, but fears he might not make it to July.

Roddick hopes the 31-year-old can bow out at Wimbledon where he won the title in 2013 and 2016.

"He's earned the right to have that moment where the public can appreciate him in the place where he built his legacy," he said.
