NADAL BACKS MUR­RAY MOVE

Business Daily (Kenya) - - SPORTS -

Andy Mur­ray's im­pend­ing re­tire­ment was a de­ci­sion he had to take be­cause he is "su er­ing", says long-time ri­val Rafael Nadal. The 31-year-old Bri­ton an­nounced on Fri­day that he will quit this year, and next week's Aus­tralian Open could be the inal tour­na­ment of his ca­reer. "When you are go­ing on court with­out a clear goal be­cause you can­not move well and you have pain, then it is the time to take a de­ci­sion," Nadal said.

It seems like he had not a very long ca­reer be­cause to­day play­ers are play­ing that long. But 10 years ago, if he re­tired at 31, we would say he had a great and very long ca­reer Nadal on Mur­ray "He will be a big loss for ten­nis."
