Watch Andy Murray's emotional potential farewell after Australian Open loss

May JohnsonJan 15, 2019

Murray on Friday admitted that his chronic hip injury had not been eased by surgery a year ago.He then choked back tears and broke down as he revealed that he hoped to end his storied career at Wimbledon, but the Australian Open beginning Monday could be his last event because the constant pain was so bad.

Tim Henman paid tribute to Andy Murray for an "incredible" career and explained that his fellow Briton will not want to keep playing just to make up the numbers, amid his impending retirement. Among those looking to halt Serena's charge: world number one Simona Halep, defending champion Caroline Wozniacki and US Open victor Naomi Osaka.

The Scotsman now occupies No.229 in the ATP world rankings and leaves with 45 titles including two Wimbledon triumphs and a US Open win.

Murray is a two-time Olympic gold medalist and has 45 total ATP titles.

All the things going on behind [the scenes] to try to put pressure on some people, to try to move the actual person, doesn't feel clean, doesn't feel good. But I feel like I should have done better, you know, I could have done things differently. I know how hard he has been working.

But it was not the case in Australia as India won the Adelaide Test and MCG Test by outplaying Australia in all the departments. The triumph ended a 71-year wait for India . "We honestly feel that we let that Test slip", Paine said on Monday (January 7).

Williams went on to tell Vanity Fair that her "heart dropped, " when she initially found out the news., adding that she thought, "Oh my God, this can't be - I've got to play a tournament". I would like my daughters to come and watch me play a tennis match, hopefully understand what's happening before I finish. I needed to have an end point because I was sort of playing with no idea when the pain was going to stop.

"That is why he is so emotional about it because suddenly something that has been a huge, huge part of your life has been taken away, and I'm not sure how you ever replace that".

"I said to my team, "look I think I can get through this until Wimbledon".

And yet, double Olympic gold medal victor Murray pushed the Tour's in-form player, Bautista Agut all the way, despite as Murray revealed post-match enduring near-constant pain. I loved it. I'm really appreciative that the people gave me that atmosphere to play in.

And Serena Williams, a U.S. player who has reached many major semi-finals since 2009, told ESPN soon after: "I don't think there's a woman player, and there really shouldn't be a female athlete, that is not totally supportive of Andy Murray".
