Listen: Sophie, Andy Murray, Simon Colon discussed on The Tennis Podcast
"Seconds before they're about to run the alternate video type with the most schmaltzy. Tribute and montage to his career and all these plays in this montage. He says, well, I'm going to do my very best to be back here next. Roles e take. Just again, it's classic on the barrier. Isn't it? Yeah. I mean, I think the the they had to do something the idea of doing a video for with fantastic. I think maybe the books themselves in with the tone of the video being goodbye. I think maybe it could have been a slightly more lifting like, this is my favorite. Andy Murray memory either. It's very easy in hindsight. His press coverage was such that he made you feel this is it and yet actually the specific if you want to be a lawyer about it and look at the actual wording, you could see there was room for maneuver. What was it recall room? Simon colon is definitely wriggling. You can always change your mind, say whatever you like. But yeah, it's each said he's got two options. It's take four and a half months off and just rest for that four and a half months. I mean, I seem like keep up a certain of LA fitness but not train relentlessly. It's take four and a half months off. And then come back for a short lead up on gross, which I seem it'd be queens. Maybe one other and then try and play Wimbledon and have his half his, farewell. They're all he has the surgery. This hip resurfacing surgery majorly, which sounds pretty bleak. I mean, it is very close to a hip replacement, and he accepts that that almost certainly means he'll never play professional tennis again. But. He also as the. It's not an app is not absolutely. No to saying, it's physically impossible. But Brian is is planning to come back. Does doubles it is different. But it's it's obviously not sort of a different order of magnitude level of possibility to to come back say those he seizes to options he says you'll make the decision in the next week. And but he says that the colour and tone and. Feel if tonight's much will be a factor in his decision. The fact that that feels like an apt final match him if he could just have been transplanted to Wimbledon and there's nothing against us radio pin? He's Sophie about how much he loves it here. And he really does mean it. That's the only thing that's missing from. It is a farewell a think and he did say he will to that into decision emerging. He has mixed feelings. He split. He's torn between as you say. He said tonight that that he'd he's happy with that as a match that's the well. That's that's fine. And that's how I felt you in the match I was just really pleased. Everybody got to feel Andy Murray in a match again type destroy again at Wimbledon. Andy. But at the same time, you know, what better way to finish your career as well. Then go to the grass of queens. He's five times. And then get a Wimbledon where he's he made history. So I can see it from both sides. It's up to him.."
