The British Andy Murray announced in tears at the press conference prior to the final stage of the Australian Open that his intention is to retire after the Grand Slam of Wimbledon as a result of the ordeal he has gone through in the last year due to his hip injury.
The British Andy Murray, current 230 of the world, broke down to mourn in the press conference prior to the Australian Open to explain the ordeal suffered in the last year after being operated on the hip in January 2018. "I have been suffering for a long time, a total of twenty months, I have tried to do everything possible but the pain has not stopped," said the Scot, who will face Spanish in the first round Roberto Bautista (22)
The former number one, who has three Grand Slams (two Wimbledon and one US Open), he argued that he has to take into account his quality of life and that, for this reason, he will try to retire after the new edition of Wimbledon, Although he does not rule out the possibility of being forced to leave the circuit after Melbourne. "I play with limitations, it does not allow me basic things like training and playing, and I love playing tennis, that's the question," he clarified.
The player born in Glasgow currently has fourteen titles in Masters 1000 tournaments, three Grand Slams, two gold medals in the Olympic Games, as well as the crown in the 2016 ATP Finals, year in which he won nine titles that served to crown the world classification.
