  • yeah not not great
  • sorry yes I'm not not feeling good yeah
  • obviously been struggling for a long
  • time it's been probably about 20 months
  • now pretty much you know pretty much
  • done everything that that I could you
  • know to try and get my hip feeling
  • feeling better and you know hasn't
  • hasn't helped loads you know I'm in a
  • better place and I was six months ago
  • but you know still yeah it's been it's
  • been tough yeah I'm gonna play I mean I
  • can I can still play to a level know
  • level that I'm happy playing at but also
  • you know it's not just that the pain is
  • is you know is too much really and yeah
  • it's not something that I want to you
  • know don't I don't want to continue
  • playing that way you know I think like I
  • said I've tried pretty much everything
  • that I could to get it right in that
  • that hasn't that hasn't worked you know
  • so you know my plan you know I kind of
  • in middle to end of December during my
  • training block and you know I sports my
  • team and I told them that you know I I
  • can you know I can't keep doing this and
  • that I needed to have like an end point
  • because I was sort of just just playing
  • with no idea of when the sort of the
  • pain was gonna things gonna stop and I
  • felt like making that decision you know
  • I said to my team look I think I can
  • kind of get through this and so until
  • Wimbledon that was like that that's
  • where I would like to stop stop playing
  • but I'm also not certain I'm able to do
  • that
  • does that mean that
  • yeah I think I think there's there's a
  • chance of that yeah for sure yeah
  • there's a chance of that for sure
  • because yeah like I said I'm not I'm not
  • sure I'm not sure unable to to play
  • through the pain you know for another
  • four or five months and have an option
  • to you know to have another operation
  • which you know was kind of severe than
  • what I've had before and having my hip
  • resurfaced which you know will allow me
  • to have a better quality of life and be
  • out of pain you know and that that's
  • something that I'm I'm seriously
  • considering right now some athletes have
  • had that and and gone back to competing
  • but it's there's obviously no guarantees
  • with that and there's certainly not
  • something that if the reason for for
  • having an operation like that is not to
  • return to professional sports
  • you know she's for a better quality of
  • life
  • [Music]
  • the driving force behind it you want to
  • make sure you have myself you know
  • there's a lot lots of little things that
  • you know obviously you guys see me
  • running around the tennis court and
  • walking in between points and it
  • obviously I know it doesn't look good
  • and it doesn't look comfortable but you
  • know there's there's little things like
  • you know day to day that are there are
  • also struggle and yeah it'd be nice to
  • be able to do them you know any pain
  • putting shoes on socks on you know
  • things like that so yeah I mean that's
  • you know that's the main reason for
  • doing and is something that you know if
  • I was to have an operation like that I
  • mean I would rehab correctly into it
  • properly to give you know my hip the
  • best chance of being as good as it you
  • know as as good as it can be but I'm
  • also realistic and knowing that you know
  • that's you know not an easy thing to
  • come back to or play it's a you know
  • professional sport to a high level I
  • mean it's been it has been done Bob Ryan
  • had this operation
  • Wimbledon last year and is obviously
  • back playing and I've had lots of
  • communication with him about you know
  • there's a difference between singles and
  • doubles in terms of the physicality and
  • the movement and stuff so you know
  • certainly no guarantees there so yeah
  • and you being back in Melbourne I wonder
  • if you had a chance to see the surgeon
  • who did the operation last year and you
  • tell us what I saw yesterday actually I
  • mean it was just I mean I have you know
  • a severely damaged right here and you
  • know having the operation last year you
  • know give it the best possible chance of
  • of being better I mean I've been playing
  • with hip pain for a number of years it
  • wasn't like it just started you know the
  • French Open after a mattress tan it just
  • it got to a level where I couldn't
  • recover from that match and pushed it
  • over the edge and having the operation
  • was hopefully gonna you know like I say
  • make it as good as possible and you know
  • it didn't help was the pain at all and
  • that's kind of been staying I've been
  • been struggling with obviously you know
  • like the walking and there's certain
  • things on the court that I can't really
  • do properly um you know now but the pain
  • is kind of the driving factor because I
  • can play with limitations that's not an
  • issue it's the you know having the
  • limitations and then also the pains is
  • not allowing me to enjoy competing or
  • training or any of the stuff there
  • I'm sorry I walked in late I don't know
  • if this was asked but from a
  • psychological perspective what have you
  • been doing in order to kind of deal I
  • mean way too much about my head for 18
  • months pretty much I mean it's a daily
  • thing I mean and it's not you know isn't
  • just people that I work with they ask me
  • is everyone so everyone that I bump into
  • that's all I talk about
  • and yes it's pretty you know it's pretty
  • draining
  • I mean I've spoken not Lourdes but you
  • know a number of times as psychologists
  • and stuff about you know nothing nothing
  • helps because you're in lots and lots of
  • pain you can't do what it is that you
  • what is it you want do you want to do
  • and you love doing and or I can do it
  • this is not fun not enjoyable doing it
  • anymore so yeah I mean that's kind of
  • what I've done I've just tried to try to
  • deal with it talked about um but none of
  • that makes my head feel better
  • unfortunately I wish it did because if
  • it did I'd be feeling brilliant just now

A big shock upset before the Australian Open 2019 has even kicked off. British hopeful has announced his retirement this year in an extra press conference where the emotions got the better of him.

As he states over and over again: "The pain was just too much!"

Raz & Yoeri from Tennis Time have never been so down in sharing a video with you guys. Whether you loved the guy, or if he was the one bringing your favorite down to his knees, Murray has engraved his name in the history books of tennis in the Open Era. He truly was part of the Big 4 during an exceptional breathtaking time in this chapter of professional tennis.

It's safe to say it will rain down many tribute videos of the Scotsman here on Youtube and we from Tennis Time will do our part as well.

We wish all the best to Sir Andy Murray! May his post-professional tennis life be just as successful and memorable. Who knows, maybe Murray can surprise us this AO and go out with a bang!
