Reckon that's probably it for Murray. Unless he wants one last match or two at Wimbledon.

He should retire now, so he can still walk in a few years.

He doesnt need to prove anything to anyone.

I think he should play at Wimbledon. With a favourable draw, he should be able to pick up a few wins.

Even a draw like today would see him through the first round.
And if the rain stops, and everything's dry.. she would cry, just so I could drink tears from her eyes.

Reckon he'll play at Wimbledon.

Never seen what's happening right now though.

He did say he would have another Op and see what happens. Whatever the future holds for Andy. Thank you for the memories

His surgeon has said its doubtful he could continue until Wimbledon.

Its not just the physical issues; once youve come to a point where you know youre not going to recover from the physical problem, and know retirement is imminent, then how do you keep up the motivation and effort at the top level? Murray has the heart of a lion, but there always needs to be that motivation to drive you.  Maybe playing at Wimbledon will be that motivation, but the only other avenue is a hip replacement.

Sabalenka looks like she'll take a mountain of beating. She's 3rd fav at 9/1, so I don't think she's a backable price but she'll be hard to oppose against anybody in her half of the draw. Kerber and Wozniacki are the highest ranked players and she's got the power to just hit right through either of them when she's on it.

Never heard of her before but Anisimova looks like a really good talent.

She played the French Open as a 15 year old if my memory serves. She's still only 17 now but she's shooting up the rankings. She plays Sabalenka next round.

Yeah was gonna say - Anisimova is no joke... looks a clear top 10 talent. That match vs Sabalenka could be something else.

Kevin Anderson and John Isner both out before the 3rd round, great stuff.

I see Zverev was taken to 5 sets in an early round of a slam once again :lmao

Chardy played very well to be fair. Wasn't the usual Zverev choking.

Bautista-Agut must be the most under-rated player on tour. Wiping the floor with Khachanov which is no mean feat.
