Eventually, Andy Murray has called it a quit by withdrawing from the ongoing tournament in Washington.
This week has been filled with emotions for Andy and his fans, as he passed a strong message to his supporters with his impressive performances on the court.
The former world number 1 was meant to compete with Alex De Minaur in the quarter-final yesterday, but he chose to pull out of the competition as a result of exhaustion.
Murray is gradually finding back his tempo after a nasty hip injury kept him away for several months. He had watched helplessly from the treatment room as he dipped down the world rankings – below the best 800.
Not many of us imagined he could perform excellently well in the DC Open in Washington. But he showed everyone some glimpses of his old self when he won Kyle Edmund and Marius Copil.
After ending the game against Copil at 3am on Friday morning, the Wimbledon champion couldn’t hold back some tears.
However, since he couldn’t end the game against the Romanian on time, the Scott was left with little time to recover for his next game – and he instantly condemned the organisers for the scheduling.
Andy eventually pulled out of the game he was meant to play against De Minaur to preserve his exhausted body.
