US Open: Tennis star Murray does not think about resigning: "Can keep up"

After his third-round defeat at the US Open, British tennis star Andy Murray is not even thinking about retiring.

"Many people have told me that I will still hit balls, but that I can no longer play professionally," said the 35-year-old: "That was nonsense. I want to see how close I can still get to the top level of the game. "

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".
