years when he won the United States Open in 2012. He won Wimbledon in 2013 and 2016
and won Olympic gold medals in singles in 2012 and 2016. Murray reached the ATPโ€™s No.
1 ranking for the first time at the end of the 2016 season.

Murray said he still planned to play at the Australian Open against Roberto Bautista
Agut. Murray said “I can still play to a level โ€” not a level that Iโ€™m happy playing at.
Itโ€™s not just that: The pain is too much, really. I donโ€™t want to continue playing that way. I think I have tried pretty much everything I could to get it right, and that hasnโ€™t worked.”
