Yes. Murray is not ready to retire and it's hard for him to pull the plug hoping that some miracle might happen and he would fully recover and be back in the swing of things. It's not easy to draw the line and end an illustrious career when your heart is still in it. The heart is willing but the flesh is weak.While clearly dreading retirement at this stage.
He’s already said no to Doubles. But then he said He could be back next year. Who knows? In life the actions are more indicative of a person’s intentions than their words. So it’s more a case of watch this space. If the second op is successful and he were able to return then it is a question of whether Andy is willing to accept playing at the level of Hewitt or Haas after they had their hip surgeries, if that level is possible.I think there is a decent chance he will be at the AO next yr or the next.
Also he could probably play dubs with his brother a few times a year
Projecting is never a good lookHe is a generally unlikable and rather scummy person
Could be wrong but I dont think Murray got the titanium replacement that Bob got. So he still has that option to useAndy had probably the most devastating injury a tennis player can have. Nobody barring Bob Bryan but it's doubles so different story came back from it to his top level.
I wish Andy did it but the odds are slim...
