After his third-round defeat at the US Open, British tennis star Andy Murray is not even thinking about retiring.
In New York, the former world number one missed the round of 16 despite a remarkable performance with a 4: 6, 4: 6, 7: 6 (7: 1) and 3: 6 against the Italian Matteo Berrettini. Since 2017, Murray, who has been playing with a metal hip joint since undergoing surgery three years ago, has not been able to qualify for the top 16 round of a Grand Slam. Before that, the Olympic champion had done this 38 times in his career.
Nevertheless, Murray knew how to convince playfully. He was "proud of the effort I put into getting into this position," said the Scot. Playing with an artificial hip is "really difficult. I'm surprised I can still keep up with the guys who are at the top right now".
