  • Tennis great Andy Murray to retire due to ongoing injury

    Andy Murray announces impending retirement from tennis Ė as it happened

    * Murray reveals decision at emotional press conference
    * Former world No 1 could retire after Australian Open


    Andy Murray has shocked the tennis world by announcing that the upcoming Australian Open may be his final tournament. The former world No 1 has said he wants to bow out at Wimbledon this summer, but may not be able to continue beyond Melbourne.

    Hereís what Murray had to say at that dramatic press conference, having initially broken down when asked about his hip pain:

    ďIím not feeling good. Iíve been struggling for a long time. Been in a lot of pain for 20 months now. Pretty much done everything I could to make my hip feel better.

    ďWimbledon is where I would like to stop playing but Iím not certain Iíll be able to do that. Iím not certain I can play through the pain for another four or five months.Ē

    Murray will retire with three grand slams, two Olympic golds and a total of 45 ATP career titles. Perhaps more than anything else, heíll be remembered for doing what for so long had seemed impossible Ė ending Britainís long wait for a menís Wimbledon singles champion. Hereís Kevin Mitchellís report from that glorious day back in 2013:
    Watched his press conference, clearly still a very committed and engaged player - very sad to see him break down like that.

    He made a staggering amount of money on and off the court and I commend him for that. To be able to retire with such a fortune in your early thirties is incredibly rare and something us mere mortals can only dream about.

        He's a bit underrated, he managed to sneak in during the era of greats, to win a couple of GS, two Wimbledon trophies, two Olympic golds, Davis Cup. Not too shabby.

          He has a bad rep among German tennis players, especially Tommy Haas (former world #2) for his style of lamenting on court.

            Although financially heís well off, I think itís obvious that what hurts him the most is that he really loves tennis and really didnít want to retire now...heíd much rather keep playing it than just retire and enjoy the $

                Andy Lost to Agut.


                wasn't the fairytale ending.

                I wish Andy all the best in life. Great ambassador for the sport.
