And you know how it is to be an elite professional athlete do you?

Andy Murray deserves more respect than that after achieving more in his career than a numpty like you could ever dream of.

To win Grand Slams and Olympic titles in an era containing the likes of Federer, Djokovic and Nadal is nothing short of amazing.

Never mind man-up you need to grow up pal.

Screw how much he has in the bank account, that's irrelevant.

The fact is Tennis is his life, probably all he's known and dreamt of since he was young. Now he has to give that up and the world he's become accustomed to.

The fact is you think because he has money, he shouldn't be bothered and should just get on with it, because that's what you'd do. Probably (like most of us) because you still need to work for money.

life doesn't work like that, when money is no longer an issue, other areas become more of a concern, and his retirement will be a huge shock to the system and probably even harder when he sees his 3 main competitors for the past 10 plus years still going, even after some of awful injuries of their own.

I even started tearing up when I handed my notice in after my first job from uni to move to another.

Galactic.

You may have been in the forces, but one thing they insist upon teaching is respect.
Had you spoken about another man in front of your superiors in the way you have, they would have been disappointed in you, to say the least. To start a thread poking fun at a man, who is clearly in a difficult situation is shameful.
Andy Murray is a great example for the men and women who shared his career.
You are certainly not, the forces would be ashamed of you.

"He's played a bit of tennis....! MAN UP!"

Mate, he's having to give up his profession at a reasonably young age after only being number one not that long ago. It's quite a big thing to be THE best in the world, to this level.

Have you been number one in the world?

Totally confused the need for "multi-millionaire" and need to man up, too. Why does money go hand in hand with being tough, sorted and having no emotion?

the term 'man up' is possibly one of the most damaging terms in current use.

It implies that your only a man if you put a brave face on things and ignore your problems. That can be the cause of all sports of mental health issues.

But Murray in my honest opinion has been a unique contributor, giving us a reason to believe that even through the crannies of Scotland you can beat off the angst of social depravity and beat off the opposition to win at the highest level. Well done Andy. Oh, and yes he has a ton of cash but not even that could force him to compromise his health.

There's been way too much about Andy Murray and his blubbering on TV today. He's clearly been a brilliant tennis player, but you'd think the bloke had died the way everyone has been going on about it. He's just PROBABLY retiring. It wasn't even official....He's Just said he probably can't carry on.

Definitely too much hysteria and over reaction these days.

On a side note. I wonder if Sue Barker ever noshed him off. She sounded pretty desperate to today.

Of course money will cushion his 'loss'. It's daft to say otherwise. He's giving up tennis. That's it. He will have an absolutely privileged life from now on.... aided by having loads of money. It will provide him with choices, and luxury. He never needs to work again. He can spend more time with his family. Spend more time with his kids.

He's a brilliant tennis player. He's been great for British sport... but he certainly doesn't need all the gushing sympathy that's been going on today.

Just to be clear... I have absolutely nothing against the guy. I like him. I've cheered him on over the years. I just think the gushing today has been a bit over the top today. (However, it seems to be the way these days with celebrity culture).

His money well afford him choices and opportunities in the years to come that most of us could only ever dream of.

How does money cushion the loss of being able to do something you love ?

His whole life has been about trying to achieve a goal and that now has been taken away from him, history is littered with sportsmen and entertainers who have been plagued with depression after giving up their careers or not being able to perform at the levels they used to.

Heís spent hours and hours of pain trying to get back to the level he would like to be at and that hard work looks to be in vain, Iím sure anyone in the same position would be frustrated and immensely disappointed.

I bet Murray would give away the majority of his money for another 5 years of professional tennis.

Anyone that has had to give up sport due to illness or injury will know how hard it is, it's an absolutely crushing blow and it feels like you are losing your identity.

This isn't a fat middle aged bloke giving up Sunday league football, it's an elite athlete giving up everything he's spent his life working towards.

some of us [on this board] have been in the Armed forces, spent time away on the front-line, fighting for a just cause, or perhaps you've been in a career position where you've been in the essential services, protecting and saving lives-- well done to all of those, you all have guts and courage. But in my own opinion, Murray had special talents, which took him to [athletic] levels we could never, ever hope to achieve. Call it luck, genes, whatever you want, individual sports demand a whole lot more than any team sport can demand, and the Scot brought fame and fortune to himself by playing every spare minute of everyday of his young life to achieve his dreams and goals-- ok with a lot of support from his Mother, who deserves praise as well. Now, in his early 30's suddenly he breaksdown through an injury that could mean he'll need a hip replacement by the time he's 35-- seems unfair I guess especially as his foes, Novak and Nadal managed to overcome theirs.

A friend and neighbour of mine whose sons and daughter all played junior tennis to a high level (including the eldest training with Murray himself whilst at Stirling University) told me at least 5 years ago that Murray's career would be a short one due to a congenital knee condition which he has. This has probably caused his back and hip problems. Of course the emotion surrounding his retirement is overdone but that isn't his fault. Until he was a major winner Murray was treated disgracefully by the press because he usurped Henman and because he was a Scot. The Wimbledon crowd actually preferred Federer to Murray. I actually think Murray is a much more interesting and genuine a character than any of Federer Djokovic and Nadal and certainly much less affected by fame. He is in my opinion the outstanding British sportsman of this century and compares favourably with anyone of those who might lay a claim to the same accolade in the previous century.

I personally believe that people in sport are paid far too much money.

However. I have a great deal of empathy with Andy Murray.

He's dedicated his whole life to getting to the top in his chosen sport, and the realisation that it's all finally coming to an end has, unsurprisingly hit him hard.

I also like the fact that he doesn't try and bury his emotions, even though in the eyes of some, this somehow makes him less of a "man".
