Spaniard Rafael Nadal commented on the fact that Briton Andy Murray plans to end his career this season.
“It is very sad. On the other hand, it is very difficult when a person who achieved almost everything loses a goal that makes him get up in the morning. I didn’t have such a situation, but there were similar moments. You need to make a clear decision, because you you go out to court without a special purpose, because pain prevents you from moving. I doubt that it was a rash decision. If he doesn’t believe that he can become better, then it’s better to leave and not torture his psyche. Of course, this is a serious loss for tennis, Tour, players and fans, but it happens.
Now it seems that he had a short career, because he is 31 years old. However, ten years ago we would say that it was long and successful. We will miss him. I wish him all the best. Representatives of our generation are no longer 20 years old, we are starting to leave. Andy and I played in some tournaments from the age of 13-14, so we have known each other for a long time. He was a bad guy. Then we both grew up. We experienced a lot of important moments together: we played exhibition matches, trained, fought for the biggest titles. It can not be forgotten. He is a real fighter and always worked hard. It is a pity that he finishes against his will. In general, in his career was good more than bad. Yes, the ending turned out to be unsuccessful, but it can be survived, ”the Australian Open press service quotes Nadal.
