Murray revealed in a very emotional press conference that he may be forced to retire after the Australian Open, with the severe pain from his right hip having become nearly unbearable.

The former world number one and three-time Grand Slam victor pulled out of last year's Australian Open to have hip surgery and only returned in June at Queen's Club in London.

"There's a chance for sure", he said, "because I'm not sure I'm able to play through the pain for another four or five months".

"I'm in a better place than I was 12 months ago but I'm still in a lot of pain." .

Former world No. 1 Andy Murray has announced that he is planning to retire from the game at Wimbledon. I can still play to a certain level, not a level I'm happy playing at.

How Cubs manager Joe Maddon helped Bucs land Bruce Arians
The Arizona Cardinals travel to Tampa Bay in 2019 so it will be quite the reunion for the Bucs staff under Arians. His offensive coordinator will be Byron Leftwich, whom he coaxed into coaching three seasons ago.

Murray, who visibly struggled in a 6-1 4-1 practice match defeat to top seed Novak Djokovic at Melbourne Park on Thursday, has been drawn to play 22nd seeded Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut in the first round on Monday.

"I don't want to continue playing that way".

"I can play with limitations. That's where I'd like to stop playing, but I'm also not certain I will able to do that".

Murray has had a celebrated career, breaking long Grand Slam droughts for British men when he won the U.S. Open in 2012 and at Wimbledon the following year - when he was the first British man since Fred Perry in 1936 to win the prestigious lawn tennis title.

Murray had right hip surgery in January 2018 after prolonged problems with the joint. "In the middle of December I spoke to my team and told them I can't keep doing this".

Bruce Arians , 66, came out of a one-year retirement to fill struggling Tampa Bay's fifth coaching vacancy in a decade. Kingsbury will now take over for Steve Wilks , who was sacked by the Cardinals after just one year.

He hasn't reached a Grand Slam final since winning his second Wimbledon title in 2016, but has nevertheless enjoyed a glittering career since turning professional in 2005, with not only three Grand Slam titles, but two Olympic gold medals and 45 ATP crowns. "I needed to have an end point..." "I've pretty much done everything that I could to try and get my hip feeling better and it hasn't helped loads".

Murray added that quality of life was now his priority going forward with his hip and that a further operation remained an option, though not to prolong his career.

"I've tried pretty much everything I could do but it hasn't worked", said Murray. That's something I'm seriously considering. It would be nice to be able to do them without any pain: putting shoes on, socks on, thinks like that. It would allow me to have a better quality of life, to be free of pain.

"The walking, there are certain things on the court I can not really do properly now, but the pain is the driving factor".
