This could be the last time that Andy Murray fans could watch him in action. The tennis star today announced that he is mulling over retirement and this could be his last tournament. This obviously made him emotional and he was seen battling his tears throughout his conversation with the media. The former world number one had pulled out of Australian Open 2018 owing to a hip injury. However, he made a comeback in June during Queen's Club in London.

He made four tournament appearances before concluding the season and was forced to cut his season short. Murray is still struggling with the injury and even told his team that he could go for a long time. “There's a chance of that, for sure, because I'm not sure I'm able to play through the pain for another four or five months," the 31-year-old Briton, now ranked 230th in the world, said. "The pain is too much, really, and I don't want to continue playing that way. The pain is not allowing me to enjoy competing or training or any of the stuff I love about tennis,” said Murray.
The official page of the Australian Open shared the video on their social media pages. "The start to Andy Murray's press conference was very emotional 😢," read the caption of the video.
