Andy Murray: the doubts between court and retirement


Andy Murray has had an up-and-down season, but overall a positive one. Recovering almost one hundred positions in the ranking despite the torment of an abdominal injury after one of the most prestigious victories against Nick Kyrgios. The British tennis star went from the Challenger Tour to near victory in Stuttgart, where he was defeated by Matteo Berrettini.

Murray is trying very hard to postpone the withdrawal, however inevitably it is approaching. During a long interview with the BBC, the British spoke quite honestly about what the limit could be to say stop definitively.

Murray, who also returned a handful of years ago after double hip surgery, said: “If my body responds well and I continue to feel good, I will continue to play regularly throughout the year. But obviously I can’t go too far given the my age and the problems I had to face. I know for a fact that if I suffer another big injury I probably won’t try to come back again.”

The Briton took stock of last season and the one that just ended, highlighting some elements: “I wasn’t happy with how I finished last season, but despite everything, in just over twelve months I went from position 125 to 50. I hope that next year, thanks also to the work I’m doing, things will improve and I will achieve better results. This is my wish.”

Murray talked about how he is preparing for the 2023 season. The hows, wheres and whys. The British tennis player said: “I’ve already spent three weeks in Florida, working on my game and my body. I think things are going the right way. I’m working out a lot in the gym because obviously my goal is to build stamina. I hope you can help me next year.”
