After having a rather disastrous last season, Andy Murray has finally opened up on possible retirement prospects in the wake of a series of troubling injuries.

Owing to his injury woes, Murray has struggled to make a mark in recent times as he only managed to secure two wins in his final five matches of the previous season this year.

The star player, who’ll be turning 37 in May 2024, will face Grigor Dimitrov at the Brisbane International on New Year’s Eve to kick off his 20th season on the ATP Tour.

Speaking to BBC Sport, the Brit elaborated that this might be the last of him the the fans get to see if the situation remains the same as it was last year.

“If I was in a situation like I was at the end of last year, then I probably wouldn’t go again.

“But then if physically I’m doing well and my results are good and I’m playing well, then that’s enjoyable, and I could see myself still playing. We’ll see how the year goes, see how the body holds up.

“If things are going well, I’d love to keep going. But if they’re not, and I’m not enjoying it, it could be the last year, yes,” Murray noted.

Murray flew to Australia on Boxing Day and has since played practice sets with some of the best players in the world but was not able to play a tie-break with Rafael Nadal as their court time ran out at 6-6 on Saturday afternoon.
