Roger Federer admits he has been hit hard by Andy Murray’s plans to retire this season due to his ongoing hip injury.
The Scot revealed on Friday that he is still being troubled by the hip problem that has troubled him for the last 18 months.
Murray admits he is struggling to play through the pain and that he is now determined to end his career at Wimbledon in July.
However, he may not get that far, with the two-time Wimbledon champion admitting he may retire after the Australian Open.
Murray will always be remembered for his historic win at Wimbledon and Federer admits Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and himself will miss him if he decides to call it a day.
“I was disappointed and sad, a little bit shocked, to know now that we’re going to lose him at some point,” Federer said.
“But we’re going to lose everybody at some point. It’s just now that it’s definite. Of course, it hits us top guys hard because we know Andy very well. We like him. He doesn’t have many enemies, to be quite honest.
“He’s a good guy, Hall of Famer, legend. He won everything he wanted to win. Anybody would substitute their career with his. He’s a great guy.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
