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

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.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. Five-times a runner up at Melbourne Park, Murray had surgery on the joint a year ago, having played with pain for a number of years.He came back last June but was forced to cut his 2018 season short.While still struggling during a pre-season camp in December, Murray said he had told his team that he felt he could not go on for much longer.Twice Wimbledon winner Murray, Britain’s first men’s champion since Fred Perry in 1936, left the door to an eventual comeback slightly ajar, saying he was mulling another round of major hip surgery.
