Andy Murray has candidly discussed his career prospects, revealing he is “looking forward to the end” of his professional journey following his exit from the Miami Open.

Andy Murray has confessed he is “looking forward to the end now” after his departure from the Miami Open.

At the age of 36, he suffered a defeat to Tomas Machac in the round of 32, battling through with an ankle injury, with the scores ending 5-7, 7-5, 7-6(5). In the press conference that followed, Murray shared insights into his forthcoming retirement from the sport.

“I wasn’t thinking about all the matches I played. Just more that that’s the last match that I am going play here which is sad because I love it here,” Murray said, according to Mirror.

“I’ve spent so much of my tennis career here and I would have liked it to have gone on a little bit longer. This tournament particularly for me is an important one so it was a bit more emotional leaving the court today than it might be at some of the other events.

“I am looking forward to the end now, give my best the next few months and get to be at home with my family. Miami has been a special place for me during my career. It’s been my tennis home really. I’ve done so much of my work and training and preparation here. I love the city.”

Despite his departure from the tournament, Murray maintains a positive outlook on his post-tennis future, having secured victories against Matteo Berrettini and Tomas Etcheverry prior to his defeat by Machac.

This marked the first occasion Murray has clinched consecutive singles victories since his performance at the Canadian Open in August.
