Murray to retire, hopes to play Wimbledon

Murray to retire, hopes to play Wimbledon”

Murray - a two-time victor of Wimbledon - played just 14 times at tour level in 2018 and just two of those matches were at Grand Slams, both comng at the US Open. "I've had a great off-season and I feel very well prepared".

When he returned, Murray said he still wanted to play at the Australian Open, but his hip was still troubling him and his hopes of retiring in front of his home fans at Wimbledon in June were in doubt due to a level of pain that sees him struggling to even put his shoes and socks on.

'I'm going to play here.

"Not feeling good. Been struggling for a long time", Murray said. "I said to my team, 'Look, I think I can get through this until Wimbledon.' That's where I'd like to stop playing".

While he will compete at the Australian Open, facing Roberto Bautista Agut in the first round, he accepts that there are no guarantees over his fitness from this point as he struggles through the huge pain in his right hip and he may be forced to retire after the first Grand Slam of 2019.

He's been battling a hip injury for more than a year.

"I am in a better place than I was six months ago but I am still in a lot of pain".

Murray says he is planning to end his tennis career during the United Kingdom summer, but does not know if he can continue playing through his pain until then.

"It was Muzza that showed me just how entertaining tennis really could be and for that I thank him with my whole heart".

Men's second seed Rafael Nadal opens against Australian James Duckworth, fourth seed Alexander Zverev starts against Slovenian Aljaz Bedene, and last year's runner-up Marin Cilic plays another local in Bernard Tomic. "But I'm also not certain I'm able to do that".

Three-time major victor Murray is on the comeback trail after missing 11 months with a hip injury which has seen him slump to 230 in the world. "I'm not certain I can play through the pain for another four or five months".
