Sir Andy Murray forced into early retirement

After a couple of years of battling with his body, it seems that Sir Andy Murray’s hip injury problems are just not going away. Due to play against Spain’s Roberto Bautista Agut in his first round match at the Australian Open in a matter of days, and unable to compete with Novak Djokovic in a recent practice match in Melbourne, Murray has held an emotional, and at times tearful, press conference, announcing that he endures such pain when playing that the Australian Open might well be the final tournament of his illustrious career, played during probably the most competitive era of the men’s game. Years of relentless tennis at the very top level have taken their toll, and, despite hip surgery last January, followed by months of rehabilitation, the overwhelming realisation for him is that he can no longer reach the levels he once did, and certainly not without immense pain. Despite this, Murray does intend to make it to Wimbledon this year, and what more fitting way to bow out, making a Wimbledon Debenture Ticket an absolute must in order to see undeniably the greatest ever British tennis player for what may be the final time on court.
