Andy Murray has been struggling with injuries, specifically his troublesome hip in the last few years, and now it seems the pain may be all too much.

I can’t even put my shoes or socks on without any pain. I have a severely damaged right hip, having the operation last year was to give it the best possible chance of being better. I said to my team, look I think I can get through this until Wimbledon. That’s where I’d like to stop playing, but I’m also not certain I’m able to do that.

Just like many other players Rafael Nadal also had kind words to say about Murray in the wake of his tearful press conference.

Rafa wrote:

You don’t know how much we are going to miss you. You are an example of a great athlete and person.
