Scotland’s Andy Murray is surely among the greatest tennis players Britain has ever known. In the summer of 2013, after a three-set victory over Novak Djokovic, Andy became the first British tennis player to lift the Wimbledon trophy since the legendary Fred Perry back in 1936, when he defeated German Baron Gottfried von Cramm in the final.
Winner in London a second time in 2016 and champion at the 2012 Us Open, Murray has been world number one for 41 weeks.
Murray’s goals for the next few years
In a new interview released by EssentiallySports, the 33-year-old Glasgow native discussed his future after bidding farewell to professional tennis: “I love the sport, so one thing I might be interested in after retiring from tennis would be employed in another discipline.
I’ve already been asked about this a short while ago, and since I really enjoy golf, being a caddy on Tour would be exciting: it would mean being close and familiar with the best golfers in the world and learning something about a sport like this as well.
Maybe there are also some similarities between tennis and golf on a mental level, so helping a golfer with that would be interesting. Or even getting permission to coach in the soccer world, that would be fun.
The Scot, absent in Miami, reached victory in the Florida Masters 1000 in 2009 and 2013, defeating first Novak Djokovic and then David Ferrer.

Andy, now ranked number 119 in the world, commented on the decision to withdraw from the tournament in Miami.
First of all, I have to wait for the results of the examination and discuss them with my team members. I really want to play matches, but I don’t want to spend two more months recovering.
It’s getting harder and harder for me to find motivation each time I play. I have to play in big competitions, face strong opponents, otherwise, it doesn’t make sense.
