This is sad to watch. Reckon this will be his last match. He's fighting, but his body looks broken.

Outside chance he might try and bow out at Wimbledon, but I can't imagine he will want to if he isn't going to be competitive.

The end of an era.

Andy wins the third set, goes ballistic.

Its such a shame, because other than not being able to turn on one hip, he still has all the tools and attributes to be competing at the very top.

Murray wins the 3rd set! Remarkable. Can't see him lasting another 2 sets though, limping in between points.

What a legend!

So much Yeah, doubt his hip is looking forward to five sets.

He HAS to keep going to Wimbledon, will be much easier than hard court.

It feels like a fitting venue for him to go out. I reckon he can win a few early rounds there, if he gets a kind draw.

I shed a little tear at the end there.

Bit awks when he said he would try and make a comeback and then they played a video of a bunch of his fellow pros wishing him a good retirement

Likewise

Sounds like there is a minuscule chance that he can make a comeback. But has a major operation to take on first.

I reckon he’d have had to pull out of he’d won today after 5 sets.
