Andy Murray Drops Retirement Bombshell News After Another Loss

Andy Murray Drops Retirement Bombshell News After Another Loss

by Zachary Wimer

Andy Murray dropped a retirement hint recently, and he dropped another one after his most recent loss at the 2024 Dubai Championships.

It's been a really tough time for Murray in recent months. He didn't look spectacularly terrible last year and had some pretty good performances. He even had aspirations to lead Great Britain at the Davis Cup Finals, but none of that happened.

He picked up an injury late in the season and had to end it sooner than he wanted to. He missed the Davis Cup because of it, which was devastating for him. Even before the injury, Murray's tennis looked shaky, and it hasn't improved this year.

He started the year with several consecutive losses and only won his first match at the Qatar Open in Doha last week. He added one more win this week in Dubai, but mostly struggled on the tennis court.

Retirement has been a hot topic this year because he struggled, and there might be something to it. The Brit dropped a major retirement hint recently and did so once more after this latest loss in Dubai, admitting that he likely won't play past the summer.

"Yeah, I mean, I'm likely not going to play past this summer. I get asked about it after every single match that I play, every single tournament that I play. I'm bored of the question, to be honest."

What he's likely implying is a retirement at Wimbledon. Those who followed the Brit's career knew that whenever it came, it would likely be at Wimbledon, and it seems like it's going to happen.

He might have said it in the moment, but with how he's looked on the court, it wouldn't be all that shocking.

"I'm not going to talk more about that between now and whenever the time comes for me to stop. But yeah, I don't plan on playing much past this summer."
