Ex-first racket of the world, three-time winner of Grand slam tournaments, two-time Olympic champion Britain’s Andy Murray said he intends to retire this year because of a thigh injury.
About it reports “Correspondent”.
When at a press conference in front of the Open championship of Australia Murray asked how he feels, the Briton admitted that “not very”, then wept, and was compelled for some time to leave the room.
“I have severe pain for the past 20 months. I tried everything I could to make my hip feel better. It didn’t help. I feel better than six months ago, but the pain is still strong. It’s hard. I’m going to play in Australia. I can still play, but not at the level where I’m happy to play. The pain is really too strong, and I don’t want to play,” said Murray.
“In December I talked with my team, I said that can’t continue, I need to finish. I said I will try to make it to Wimbledon. There I would like to finish my career, but I’m not sure I can do it. I’m not sure I will be able to go through the pain of another four or five months,” said Murray.
