Andy Murray: Australian Open Could Be Last Tournament. Totally emotional
Britain’s Andy Murray says he plans to retire after this year’s Wimbledon. But he fears next week’s Australian Open could be the final tournament of his career.
The three-time Grand Slam winner was in tears at a news conference in Melbourne on Friday. Andy is struggling to recover from hip surgery. He admitted being in constant pain and found it difficult to even tie up his shoe laces.
“I’m not sure I’m able to play through the pain for another four or five months,” said the 31-year-old Scot.
“I want to get to Wimbledon and stop but I’m not certain I can do that.”

However, Murray says he still intends to play his Australian Open first-round match against Spanish 22nd seed Roberto Bautista Agut next week.
It has taken a lot of courage to admit being at the end of your game. Andy Murray tried to continue with the sport after his hip operation. But he hasn’t recovered and not back to normal. The pain has become intolerable.
A courageous Andy? What do you think.
