Andy Murray claims that he will be happy if his five-seventh thriller against Roberto Bautista-Agudo of Spain is his final tennis match.
The emotional champion repeatedly reduced his tears on Monday night as he made an unforgettable definitive appearance at Melbourne Park, but there was no tears in his possible end-of-the-half meeting as he kept a stream of " Hope it could still be back in 2020.
Previously, Murray was aware of tears when he was stopped from starting his service game 5-1 in the fifth half for a crashing ovation from the crowd of Melbourne Arena.
The tribute not withdrawn from Murray's probable final service game in Melbourne Park was the pure, cinematic and sporty emotion, which reduced to 32-year-old tears struck by the Battle, as well as his mother, Judy Murray, who was crying when he was behind Jamie's brother in the Andy players' box.
Murray continued to maintain his service before his opponent completed his four-hour epic 6-4 6-4 7-6 7-6 6-2 with his next service game.
Murray explained the emotional scenes within Melbourne Arena as something that never happened to him before.
"I am referring, obviously, at this time, I was excited at this time," he said at his post-party press conference.
"I was great. I do not think I had had this before in any game. I do not know if I came to serve Wimbledon for Wimbledon, I do not know if that happened. Look, it was great.
"The atmosphere of the whole game was incredible. I loved it. I'm very grateful that people would give me this atmosphere to play. Yes, I enjoyed it a lot."
He suggested that the environment was so perfect in his eyes that he is more likely to be opposed to a surgery to save the race, as it would be convenient to leave the way Aussie Open goes encourage the goal.
"If today was my last match, look, it was also a brilliant way to finish". This is something that I will probably take into account, "he said.
"It was a surprising atmosphere. Literally, I gave everything I had to the track, I fought the best I could, and I did a lot better than I should have done without the amount I could practice and Train, you know, whatever. It would be fine if it's the last game. "
Emotion stopped when the time came to outline how it will decide in the coming weeks if you continue with hip surgery that will finish your career immediately or if you will try to rest for a last appearance on Wimbledon.
"I have basically two options," he said.
"One is to take the next four and a half months, and then build yourself, you know, to play Wimbledon. Look, I mean, though tonight I was not comfortable with my hip. In the end, I mean, I'm I'm very struggling. I can not walk right in all now.
"I can play another game, but if I want to play again, I want to improve my quality of life, because although I have four months, I still can not walk." I'm still having pain doing basic everyday things. But having an operation like this, there is absolutely no guarantee that you can play again. I am aware of this.
"It's a great operation. There is no guarantee that you can return to that. But there is the possibility, because the men have done it before. Bob Bryan is doing it right now. Some other athletes have the # 39 They have given an opportunity. But, as I said, there is no guarantee. This is the decision I have to make, the possibility of not having another coincidence with the operation.
"You probably decide next week or so. But that's what I said on another day, that this could be my last match. If I continue with the operation, I will not get it back, I will not go back to I play. I am aware of this. This is the decision I have to make. "
Even in the defeat, Andy Murray was warmly welcomed to Open Australian Open history books last time with a staging of her tennis companions' homage throughout ATP and WTA Tours.
In spite of the tribute, Murray quickly took part in the emotion of the holidays stating that he had not yet resigned to return in 12 months.
"I honestly loved playing here over the years. It's an incredible place to play. If this was my last match as you say, it's an incredible way to finish. I gave everything I had," he said.
"I do not know, maybe I will see you again. I will do everything to try.
"If I want to go again, we have to have a massive operation because there are no guarantees, but I will give you the best shot."
