Former No. 1 Seeded Andy Murray Announces Australian Open as his 'Last Tournament'

Andy Murray's fans would not want to see him limped off, that would force him to retire from the game. He would like to end his career after Wimbledon but changed his mind, not taking any risk of aggravating any more damage.


An emotional Andy Murray announced on the press conference today as his further injury scares could force him to retire from the game at the end of the Australian Open. The 31- year old former World No. 1 Scotsman is currently sitting on No. 230 in the ATP Rankings, as a result, missing in action in the last couple of Grand Slams. 

Murray revealed that his objective was to end their 77- year drought in Wimbledon before retiring but that wasn't the case to be, from the fan's perspective.  He, later on, stated that he would be unable to continue beyond the first Grand Slam.

Murray will be up against 22 seeded Spaniard  Robert Bautista Agut on Monday during the opening match of the 1st Grand Slam. He kickstarted his career with a first-round win at the Brisbane International against Australian James Duckworth, but crashed out at the following round against lanky Russian player, Daniil Medvedev, limping off in the process.

Murray stated that he was struggling with severe injuries in 2017, and a serious hip injury in the following year, leaving surgery as an only option.

His best Grand Slam achievement was the 2013 Wimbledon, which makes him the first British player to win this prestigious tournament since Fred Perry in the year 1936, followed by another Wimbledon win in 2016 and his maiden Grand Slam win at the US Open in 2012. 

Fans of Andy Murray wish him the best and are hoping him for the best before retiring from the game.
