after his heroic five-set loss to Roberto Bautista Agut in the Court the Video-Laudatien of his colleagues roared about him, was not felt: no, inwardly, Andy Murray with his career, has not yet completed. So pointless a play also appears to be, it still resists against the Inevitable. This was also reflected in his statement to the Fans: "Maybe we'll see you again".
After midnight, in the interview room, he laid open to his emotions. "I have basically two options. One is to pause for four and a half months, and then to Wimbledon to prepare. The other is a re-Operation." As he spoke more, it became clear that he tends towards the second variant. In fact, Murray is also not a top athlete, but rather a sports invalid, which is difficult to define, to do everyday things, such as the dog run or put on the shoes.
The last Stohhalm
"at the moment, I can hardly go more, and it was also not comfortable with the hip," he admitted. "But to know that I play for a long time, helped." Self a break until Wimbledon would not improve his Situation, he is aware of. "Well then I can hardly walk and a day in pain." What prevents him, for the next Operation through rings? "There is absolutely no guarantee that I would be then able to play again. I am aware that this would be a really big Operation."

The bottom-line strategist who loves the Tennis similar to Roger Federer, grasping at the last straw, the last hope. "There are people who have managed, after such an Operation to make a Comeback. Bob Bryan is doing exactly that now (in double, Red.), other athletes have tried it, too." He stands in front of a Dilemma: Either he extended his Suffering for maybe a single additional Match to months or risk that Melbourne was his Swan song.
The decision he will make in the next few days, said the 31-year-old former world rank list first, two-time Olympic and three-time Grand Slam winner. Inwardly, he should have met him already. The prospect of improving his quality of life and to alleviate the pain, should give the casting vote. In addition, its appearance is included in Melbourne all the ingredients of a worthy farewell.
"The atmosphere was fantastic"
Murray fought against Bautista Agut after a 0:2 behind in the fifth set, against one of the form of the strongest players of the season. This plays in its Deliberations. "This should be the last Match had been, it was to stop a brilliant way. The atmosphere was fantastic, I gave it all I had, and showed a much stronger performance, as I shall show could have given my training effort. I was able to enjoy it." It was the most emotional Match he had ever played in Australia. And after all, he was five times in the final, from Melbourne (but lost all).
How torn the father of two, made very clear later in his answer to the question of how he would explain to his girls what he had done once. "I'll tell you, I was an athlete. It was a dream of mine to play in front of your eyes a tennis match, before I come back. But I am aware that this is not likely to happen now, and that makes me sad."
Even if he is braced against the resignation, move him to the many nice statements and video messages from his colleagues. "This is something I'll be happy to look back, even Though we were in extreme competition types and a lot of big games against each other fought, there was always a real respect among us. We sent us messages and congratulated each other. I am convinced that we will remain friends, and that's what counts."

But Murray looks back with mixed feelings on his career. "It would probably have been better to play a little less and give me some more breaks. This frustrated me given the Situation I'm in now. It was probably a mistake to have worked so hard for. I had better do sometimes say no as easily to what I was told." A realization came to him too late, and what he is now, a high price has to pay.
