An emotional Andy Murray has dropped a major bombshell by announcing that Wimbledon could be the final tournament of his career.
Murray, 31, was in tears at today’s press conference and had to leave before gathering himself together, revealing he is carrying a serious hip injury that is severely limiting his ability to play to his absolute best.
The three-time Grand Slam winner says he can’t continue to play through the pain that has been hampering him for almost two years and hasn't ruled out the Australian Open being his career swansong.

"Not feeling good. Been struggling for a long time. Been in a lot of pain for 20 months now. Pretty much done everything that I could to try and get my hip feeling better and it hasn't helped loads." Murray said.
"The pain is too much really. I don't want to continue playing that way.
“Wimbledon is where I would like to stop playing but I am not certain I am able to do that.
"I'm not sure I can play through the pain for another four or five months.
“Pretty much done everything that I could to try and get my hip feeling better and it hasn't helped loads...I think there is a chance the Australian Open is my last tournament.
"I can play with limitations. But having the limitations and the pain is not allowing me to enjoy competing or training."
Murray takes on Roberto Bautista-Agut in the first round at the Australian Open.
