Judy Murray shows her support for a glowing tribute made to her son Andy from a supporter looking ahead to his retirement.
The three-time Grand Slam winner has effectively confirmed this will be his last year on tour, having battled through a hip issues in the latter stage of his career.

After suffering an agonising defeat by Tomas Machac at the Miami Open,Murray admitted that he was ‘looking forward to the end’. The defeat came with the additional blow of an ankle injury that has kept him sidelined for the start of the clay season.
As the end of his glittering career draws near, one self confessed fan, journalist Scott Barclay, delivered a heartfelt tribute to the 36-year-old, which was gratefully received by his mum Judy.

‘One day very soon, Andy Murray is going to announce his retirement plans.’ He wrote on X, formerly Twitter. ‘This man single-handedly walked British tennis back into world relevancy and when he goes, he’ll take with him a piece of every single one of us that showed up for him year-in, year-out. All-timer.’

Judy, who coached Andy and older brother Jamie in their youth, simply replied to the message with a ‘love heart’ emoji.
Andy Murray famously ended the a 77-year drought for a British male winner at Wimbledon when he defeated Novak Djokovic in a thrilling final in 2013.

By that point he had already claimed his maiden Grand Slam at the US open, as well as a gold medal at the London 2012 Olympics.

Andy Murray would add further SW19 and Olympic success to his collection in the years that followed.
His achievements are made all the more remarkable by the period of tennis he had the misfortune of competing in.

Murray held the number one spot in the men’s singles rankings for a total of 41 weeks in the same era as Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Djokovic.

Prior to his Miami defeat by Machac, Murray played some of his best tennis in recent months. However, after revealing that he suffered a ‘full rupture’ of an ankle ligament in the loss, a farewell Wimbledon appearance is in doubt.

It is less than six weeks until the start of the British grass-court season and just over two months until Wimbledon. He has also targeted a final Olympic appearance in Paris.
