Australian Open 2019: Why Andy Murray's Wimbledon farewell might not happen

Andy Murray’s hopes of making his tennis farewell at Wimbledon are in tatters.

The former world No.1 will hang up his racket this year due to an ongoing hip problem.

Though Murray has admitted the upcoming Australian Open could be his last event, he wants to make his bow from the sport at the All-England Club where he is a two-time singles champion.

The 31-year-old went under the knife in an attempt to correct the long-term problem a year ago but remains in pain despite months of rehab.
