The surgeon of Andy Murray has revealed that it will be very difficult for the Brit to play Wimbledon.

On Friday, an emotional Murray declared his intention to stop tennis later in the summer at his home tournament.

But Dr. John O & # 39; Donnell, who served the awkward right hip of the Scot, said: "I do not think it is impossible, but it will be very difficult."

Speaking of BBC Radio 5 Live's Sportsweek program, Donnell also said that Murray had exhausted all possibilities of returning to the highest level.

& # 39; He has done his very best and examined all options that have a real possibility to be helpful, & # 39; O & # 39; Donnell added.

"Realistically, I do not think that there can be anywhere else to keep his hip and get better, so that he can keep playing. That will not happen now. & # 39;

Murray will face Roberto Bautista Agut in the first round of the Australian Open on Monday before choosing the best next action for his injured right hip.

Murray has never dropped a set against the sandy Spaniard Bautista Agut, but admitted that he is physically so bad that he expects to lose.

He told newspaper reporters: "I know I do not have a chance to win this tournament and I will probably lose in the first round, I'm not happy about that, and because of the way the last six months of competitions went, I could win, but I probably will not do that, it will become uncomfortable.

& # 39; If it is my last game, I want to try to enjoy it – enjoy the whole experience, which may be something I did not do during my career. I am always focused on tactics and winning and finding a way. & # 39;

As for the sequel, Murray is considering an operation to undergo his hip again. He insisted on quality of life on Friday and not on a comeback, not even in his mind, but he talked to other players who followed the same procedure.

Murray has interests of the court and a young family, but admits: "Once I started thinking about quitting, all the things that I thought I would really like to do, I have no interest at all. .

& # 39; Thinking of what I do when I'm done playing and making decisions – talking to psychologists – is the worst thing I should do.

& # 39; It will take time for me to deal with it. I need time to get over it and then to know what my next steps will be. I know that will be difficult. I love tennis. I love playing the game. & # 39;
