Upon his return, Murray has not been able to create the same impact as he did during his prime. Due to that, he has cast doubts if he can continue playing the sport that has given him everything. 

He recently spoke on this subject and stated, “This decision is an important one for me because obviously I dunno how much longer I’m gonna be playing so I want to make sure the person that’s with me for the last period of my career is the right one. That’s why I’m going about it this way.”

After that, he was involved in an intense match against Stefanos Tsitsipas at the US Open. Although he lost the match, there were many positives for him to take back from that performance.
