It’s a sad day for all concerned with British tennis with Andy Murray announcing his imminent retirement from the sport.
The British number one has announced he will be retiring from tennis after Wimbledon this summer, and it could even be sooner if injury reoccurs.
Murray, in a press conference, has told of how he can no longer deal with the pain caused by his hip injury, and that’s going to cause the end of his tennis career this year.
It’s been a sad day for all who support Murray, but on the positive side of things, there’s been a celebration of Murray’s best moments throughout social media today, reminding us of just how good a career he has enjoyed.
And we’ve also been treated some classic Murray moment from outside of the tennis court, none better than a flashback of his demolishing of football legend Clarence Seedorf in the Copa-Uppy Challenge.
The BBC challenged stars and former stars from different sports to see how many keepy-uppies they could manage with a tennis ball.
Clarence Seedorf quickly became the man to beat with an excellent technique, racking up 18.However, Andy Murray had other ideas, taking to the floor to make easy work of the challenge.
With a predictably cool and calm technique, he demolished AC Milan legend Seedorf, racking up an incredible 78 keepy-uppies on his first attempt before snubbing a second attempt by joking “I’m not going to do any better than that, I don’t think!”
Tennis may be Andy Murray’s forte, but on this evidence, you may not want to be on the opposing team to the British number one in a game of 5-a-side.
