Murray to retire this year due to pain from surgically repaired hip

Andy Murray will be retiring this year because of the severe pain from his troublesome right hip with next week’s Australian Open potentially his last tournament as a professional. Five-times a runner up at Melbourne Park, Murray had surgery on the joint a year ago and has been unable to recover his best form. Overcome with emotion and struggling to hold back tears, the 31-year-old three-times Grand Slam champion told reporters that he had hoped to play until at least this year’s Wimbledon tournament. But he felt the Australian Open might end up being his swansong, given the pain from his hip had become almost unbearable.
