Protracted surge at close of ‘16 season was the most outrageous charge that I’ve witnessed in individual sport.
Icon on the strength of that alone.

There is no hope. Face it. He will bump out early (next) and there is a chance he won't even show up.really sucks that he got injured while being world number 1 and playing his best tennis ever, and now this..
There is still hope, if he gets rid of the pain that is.. it´s really strange that in 2019 top notch health care, that he cant fix his hip.
He had control, but pushed his body to the limits! It's the same with Rafa who'll probably end up with hip replacements of his own!Damn it's gonna be weird when the big 4 are gone. Sorry for Murray and his fans. He has accomplished great things and given us some amazing matches against GOAT contenders.
it's sad to see him go, but sadder to see a guy struggle physically as much as he has. Unfortunately we only have so much control over our expiration date.
Injury is definitely not the worst way to go, lifetime bans/suspensions are arguably way worse. But I agree it must be a real struggle for him.I'm sorry, Andy. You were a great competitor.
Always sad to see a champion of this caliber in a position like this. Goodness, this feels terrible. Sorry to all the good Murray fans out there that must be even further heartbroken than me. @Mainad, my condolences. Injury is the worst way to go.
Thank you for years of great tennis. Thank you so much.
Injury is a terrible way to go if they rob you of your chance to achieve your goals. Murray may not have achieved all he wanted, but he did achieve most of them, with dual Wimbledon titles, world number 1 and a Davis Cup. Hopefully he lives pain free in retirement and finds other interests. The hyper emotional nature of his press conference suggests he's a bit lost.Injury is definitely not the worst way to go, lifetime bans/suspensions are arguably way worse. But I agree it must be a real struggle for him.
Sad to see a great champion go.
As in like ranked #2 in the world? I'm not sure I really agree, because I feel like Nadal, Federer and Djokovic all achieved more as #2 in the world than Andy did. Not to take anything away from Andy Murray, as I think he's a fantastic player and I will certainly miss watching him play. I think for him to achieve what he did, in the era of tennis gods like Fed, Nadal and Djokovic, is absolutely outstanding and something to be proud of. He won 3 majors, 2 gold medals in singles and got to #1 in the world. A few years ago, people would say that you are crazy to think Andy Murray would be the first to retire out of the Big 4. Amazing how things can change dramatically in that time. I will definitely miss Andy after he hangs it up.The Greatest No 2 in tennis history (yes, yes, I know he was no 1). Should of had another 3-4 slams to his name. In any other era he would of dominated.
Copped a lot of flack for his style of play, especially when Nadal is lauded for a similar style of play.
But the man was a gun. He spilled blood on the court and gave us many memorable matches. Always loved watching him play.
Also the driest humor of any of the players. He could of been a member of Monty Python.
Left his mark on true fans of the sport.
You will be missed.
Hopefully will start a commentary career.
He is a top 3 player of his generation, if by generation you mean other players of similar age. Djokovic, Nadal, and Murray are the top 3 players of their generation.Certainly one of the top 10 players of his generation
Do not fear old friend.
