There'd be a lot of tearful farmers if suddenly one day someone said oh no you're 65 now, your not fit to Farm anymore. We're taking all your cows and land off you. Here's a nice little council house to retire into.
Kind of happened to me , not quite how you describe it but I had to give up full time farming due to xyz but no one really gave a toss . I didn’t go on Tv and cry about it . I’ll admit I had a few quite moments but I had to just get on with it . I’m ok off no worries financially but not in the same league as soft lad Murray he wants to realises what he’s had and the position it’s put him in .

I don't think Andy was crying because he has to stop playing. I think it was from 18 months of dedicated recuperation, pain and intensive training, and mostly hope. That two days earlier it became clear that it was all in vain and the reality was still very fresh when he stepped into the press conference.

There are many farmers who complain of having to work every hour yet still struggle to make a living, whereas they could sell up and live comfortably.

Andy doesn't play tennis to make millions, he does it because he lives and breathes the sport. And his dedication to his sport and efforts to national rewards (davis cup is a UK team) should be respected.

He has achieved more than any other uk tennis player in history, while standing up for equality and encouraging kids into sport.

I've never seen a crowd so one sided, Wimbledon final maybe. I did wonder if it would get to him.

Well done to Andy. He could hardly walk after the third set yet kept going.

Do you think that will have inspired him to get to Wimbledon?
