Absolutely gutted about the news re Andy. I was lucky enough to vaguely know him through Scottish tennis circles then even more lucky to have worked closely along side him through a lot of the Davis Cup journeys. Was even on the court and in the dressing room in Belgium after the Davis Cup victory.

Just a genuine genuine guy. Relatively shy and straightforward but with a good dry humour and a heart of gold.
Essentially cut right down in his prime, I think he could have had many more Slams the last few and upcoming couple of years as well. Amazing to have the 3 he has but could have been a good few more.

Sad that he is the first to go out of the big four.

I guess my household will be Novak now, owing to the Serbian wife

It would be a good match to go out on, but it suggests that he'll make it to Wimbledon. Or does it? Either way; classic Murray!
This, there was no more a Murray match for him to have gone out on! Topsy turvy, he's out, he's back...

There was a note of he's not ready to retire in his speech, but that could have been match adrenaline there
