    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 .

    So what?
    I don't get the impression he gives two hoots about the money. Yes he's very wealthy but I think he'd rather be fit for tennis

    The point I was making is he's human like anyone else. Yet he's been criticised for being emotional like he's less of a man because of it.
     
  7. On the radio random celebrities where paying there respects to him as if he had died
     
  8. If I had £80million tennis would be the last thing on my mind
     
  9. he can chose / has the freedom to do plenty of other stuff. can still play tennis even......

  11. But it would take a very serious life changing injury for someone to stop farming

    And Murray has joint pain and £80million he’ll be ok
     
  12. Don’t they all retire before there 40 anyway?

    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.

    Roberto Bautista Must have felt like he was shooting Bambi this morning when he beat Murray.

    It’s also no different to employees who have been made redundant! There’s going to be a few at LR - JAGUAR very soon they won’t be able to take time to consider there next move !

    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?
