Andy Murray to retire from tennis

Andy Murray to retire from tennis

But Murray dropped a pre-Grand Slam bombshell, breaking down during a tear-filled press conference as he revealed chronic hip pain means he will retire after Wimbledon - if he can carry on that long.

At 37, he's still targeting records at his record-equaling 20th Australian Open: to be the first man to win seven Australian Open titles, the first man to win at least seven singles titles at two Grand Slam tournaments (he has eight Wimbledon titles), and the first man to win five major titles after turning 30.

Murray broke down on Friday when he told a news conference that the severe pain from his troublesome right hip had become nearly unbearable for him to play on. I have pretty much done everything that I could to try and get my hip feeling better. "I just enjoy the moment with the shoes, then I'll think about the match". But after overcoming an elbow injury that required surgery, he stormed to Wimbledon and US Open titles last summer, taking his Grand Slam tally to 14 and propelling him back to the world No. 1 spot.

It has been suggested that a hip replacement would be beneficial for the three-time grand slam champion, but O'Donnell added: "Andy has tried really hard and explored every option that has any real possibility of being helpful".

The men's draw has Roger Federer looking to defend his crown although he comes in as third seed with world number one Djokovic holding the top seeding. "I was at my cottage in Fife with my wife and I couldn't even watch the last set on TV. You deserve to retire on your own terms, whenever that happens", said current world No. 5 Juan Martín del Potro. We shared the court in the most important stadiums in the world, competing for the most important things.

Corretja described Murray's style as something of a throwback, saying he may have lacked the explosive power of some of the modern generation but knew how to outwit opponents, agreeing with former U.S. Open champion Andy Roddick that he was unrivalled as a tactician.

Federer has credited improvements in travel, in nutrition and in life balance for giving modern tennis players the ability to extend their careers well into their 30s. We played lots of epic matches in the professional circuit.

The child, who appeared to be less than one-year-old, was barefoot and wearing just a onesie and diaper. She then rushes back to the vehicle, where some passengers look on.

"I'm happy. I'm enjoying the time".

"But he has a management company, he represents athletes and we have seen him in the commentary box". He won everything he wanted to win.

Nadal recalled a younger Murray - "a little bit a bad boy" - in the under-13s and 14s, but was full of praise for how his Scottish friend had evolved. It's going to be uncomfortable. No one wants to lose in the first round of a slam, I think. "I've always been focused on tactics and winning and finding a way".

"I am knowing her now for a few years so I knew she could be much fitter but it's just a question of time".

"I know how not well he was", said the Swiss.
