Genuinely sorry to hear he's packing up.
One of our greatest ever imo
Yep a shame when he has put so much in to it and got so far
Cry arse big baby
okay his competive life looks like it’s coming to an end, but has wife, child and a good life, never will have to worry about work or money,
Some people do not realise how privileged they are,
Think half the reason he's fooked himself is because of how much he put his body through to get to the top.
Not sure why anyone would call him a cry baby. Bit narrow minded
Just read that Robert Huth has confirmed his retirement, there was some confusion as to whether he had finished playing because, as he has said today, he didn't cry about it. Class player.
Would have had greatest respect if he had announced retirement. Instead we had embarrassing ritual, Which should never been broadcast, but who cares, the good old Beeb makes up, by declaring he is the world’s greatest ever athlete since, err um that chap last week?
Everyone has their time , Andy Murray has had his, the body can only take so much . He has earned a decent butty, has a nice home in England etc , etc . Now he can support and help his brother in his quest. Settle down Andy and enjoy the fruits of your work.
Good to know I'm as fit as a double Gold Medal winning Olympic athlete and Wimbledon winner
I struggle to get my socks and shoes on in the morning.
I think with Andy Murray it will be more of a problem with him being ables to move as fast, but I bet he could still go out and run for a good bit still. It must be hard on the joints all that work when playing tennis . Not a tennis fan myself , but you can still support those who have done a lot for their sport.
Not a big fan myself but respect where it’s due, particularly for what he has done for women in sport without being a big gob about it.
In some ways the other "Murray" may be the better person. More balanced worklife, homelfe & will be able to play for more years. Never seen him as emotional as Andy, usually smiling even if he loses.
Judy is & should be proud of both her "boys".
But to win we need Men like Andy, I suppose he is like an Holstein, worked himself into been a wreck.
BBC have had it as first item on the news all day. Is this really the most important thing?
They all have their day.
Sorry that he is having to retire early, he’s been a great ambassador for British tennis and at last laid to rest the ghost of no British champion since Fred Perry.
But does it honestly warrant the extended BBC News headline item lasting for almost a quarter of the lunchtime bulletin? He has indeed been a great player but let’s get things in perspective please.
Are you a distant relative to a philosopher of yesteryear?
That probably reflects the way all news is reported these days.
Over hyped and blown out of proportion for a few hours then forgotten about
Proper sportsman,probably pushed himself more physically and mentally than he should have but had the drive to achieve his goal.
Don't see him as a cry baby at all,must be a lot of pressure and emotion to get to that level.
Respect where it's due.
Superb athlete - probably the best this country has seen in a long, long time.
Fine human being. Just got on with his life and felt no need to join the celebrity circus unlike many other sportspeople sadly .
Clearly he hasn't prepared mentally for his sport life to end, either this soon, or in this way. He will accept it in time, but it won't happen overnight.
I wish him happiness . It's the most important thing to us all eventually.
