As you’ll probably know by now, Murray revealed last week that he’s badly struggling with an ongoing hip injury, and isn’t sure how long he’ll be able to continue playing through the pain barrier.
He gave today’s first-round tie against Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut every drop of energy in his body, but found himself edged out in a five-set classic.
The match could very well be the final time we see Murray on the court at a Grand Slam event, and it seems the organisers of the Australian Open were ready and waiting with a video montage that would bring a tear to a glass eye:
An amazing tennis player.
But an even better person.

Do you think Murray will continue playing, or is it time he gave himself a break?
