An emotional Andy Murray says he will stop playing tennis this year due to hip pain

2019-01-11 06:32
Andy Murray may retire after the Australian Open, with the severe pain from his troublesome right hip having become almost unbearable for him to play on, the former world number one said on Friday (January 11). Overcome with emotion, the three-times Grand Slam champion wept at a media conference as he revealed that he had initially planned to quit after playing this year's Wimbledon tournament but now felt Melbourne Park might end up his swansong. "There's a chance of that, for sure, because I'm not sure I'm able to play through the pain for another four or five months," the 31-year-old Briton, now ranked 230th in the world, said.
