Chin Up Andy


Andy Murray crashed out of Wimbledon early on in the competition, leading him to question his future in tennis. 

The Scotsman admitted that his recent defeat to Stefanos Tsitispas could have marked his last appearance at the famous tournament, ten years after he won it in his greatest career achievement. The Friday night showdown had to be stopped at 11pm due to venue rules and Murray was unable to pick up where he left off the next day.


Retirement Imminent

Now, it looks like the evergreen tennis star will hang up his boots and retire from the sport’s biggest stage. Though he’s clearly a lot better than his disappointing display suggested, it’s obvious that the future of tennis is passing him by and, in my opinion, it’s best if Murray walks off into the sunset with his head held high. 

Murray joined Cam Norrie and Liam Broady on the list of eliminated British stars from this year’s Wimbledon, leaving only Katie Boulter as the only Brit remaining in the competition. 

When asked if he’d return to Wimbledon next year, Murray stated: ‘’I don't know. Yeah, motivation is obviously a big thing. Continuing having early losses in tournaments like this don't necessarily help with that.’’

Social Ridicule

The former World No. 1 has been ridiculed on social media for his early departure and I find it shocking that so many people are willing to turn their backs on Murray, who has been a fine ambassador for British sport and who has always gone about his role with a touch of class and dignity. 

Speaking forlornly, the great said: “I'm obviously very disappointed just now. Obviously you never know how many opportunities you're going to get to play here. The defeats maybe feel a bit tougher.’’

He went on to add that ‘’every year, Wimbledon’s not gone how I would like’. Considering that he won the competition in 2013, this is a surprising statement and a further testament to his humility. Murray may be past his best, but he’ll always have my support regardless of what his next career move is.
