Andy Murray ex-coach lifts lid on retirement chat after Brit’s worrying Wimbledon comments

Andy Murray’s former coach Jamie Delgado addressed speculation that the Brit was considering retirement after refusing to commit to next year’s Wimbledon.

Murray suffered a heartbreaking five-set defeat to Stefanos Tsitsipas in the second round of Wimbledon and made some worrying comments about his future after the match. Asked whether he’d be back at SW19 for another go, he said it was tough to stay motivated to continue playing after early losses.

With uncertainty surrounding the future of the world No 40’s career, his ex-coach said Murray previously hadn’t been planning his exit from tennis. The three-time Grand Slam champion had already prematurely announced his retirement back at the 2019 Australian Open but was able to mount a comeback after undergoing hip resurfacing surgery.

“It was that year in Australia where potentially that was it for him,” Delgado said. “We always kind of felt that he would play again, knowing that he was going to go through the surgery and try to play doubles first, which he did, and then move into singles.”
