Andy Murray Says Not Timetable for Retirement

Former #1 player in the World Andy Murray notched his first win of the season on Wednesday with a 2-6, 6-3 .10-2 super tiebreaker win over Zhang Zhizen at the Kooyong Classic exhibition event in Melbourne, Australia, and doesn’t appear to be ready to retire anytime soon.

The three-time Grand Slam champion entered in the main draw of the Australian Open, which is set to take place on January 16th.

“I’ve been healthy the last seven months. I’m not awakening with aches and pains like in the last few years,” Murray said (h/t ESPN). “As long as the body holds up well and I’m training properly and performing to a level I’m enjoying, then I will keep going. But I don’t have a time frame [for retirement].”

Murray, 35, said back in December 2022 that another big setback due to injury would likely lead him to retire.

“If my body is in good shape and I’m still able to compete consistently, I’ll keep playing,” he said. “But I can’t look so far in advance with the age I’m at and with the issues I’ve had. If I was to have a big injury, I probably wouldn’t try to come back from that.”
