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.

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.

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.
 
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.

The new Environmental Land Management Scheme (ELMS) must be flexible and have farming at its heart, the NFU said today, as the government consultation draws to a close.

The scheme is due to be rolled out in 2024, replacing the existing environmental schemes currently available under the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP).
