Tears flow on Wimbledon Centre Court for Emotional Andy Murray Interview

Andy Murray

Andy Murray and Jamie Murray played together for the first time at the All-England Club. After their defeat in the first round of the men’s doubles–which had to be on Centre Court; it couldn’t be anywhere else–an on court interview took place. Sue Barker came onto the court to interview Andy for very nearly one last time.

A video was shown before the interview took part. It was a farewell to Andy by the “Big Three” and Venus Williams. It was very emotional, everyone was feeling it. Tears began to flow. Andy and Sue hugged and Sue Barker said that “she wasn’t going to miss this” as she walked on the court.

Emotions high

The interview itself was very emotional. Novak Djokovic was standing on the side of the court along with other people. Sue Barker brought up the very stressful last game of the 2013 final. Which Murray could not remember on the day. He has watched it back many times and complimented Djokovic on the way he played.

Emotions went up and down all through the interview, laughing as well as crying. Murray admitted that after the 2016 Wimbledon win he got drunk. Andy said he will always come back and will be back. He dropped a major hint that he would be more comfortable in the coaching box. Murray made everyone laugh by saying he didn’t enjoy his stint as commentator, mostly because the size of the box and the length of the match he was commentating on.

When talking to his team, Murray started off fine but his voice started going when talking about the last few years. He had to stop at one point to collect himself and the crowd tried to encourage him back on track. Murray was very emotional and broke down several times.

British Tennis is not going to see the likes of Andy Murray again anytime soon. He will be missed and although he has not officially announced his retirement, we know he is not playing beyond the summer. Will he play the Olympics? Or will the mixed doubles with Emma Raducanu here at Wimbledon be his last professional match?

Wimbledon has shared the entire interview on its YouTube channel. Watch it below:
