Andy Murray smells of farewell again. Now, after winning his debut in Dubai, he slipped something on the subject.

The 36-year-old Scot defeated Canadian Denis Shapovalov 4-6, 7-6 (7-5) and 6-3. But his words went further.

“I probably won’t have much time left, but I’ll do my best these last few months.”he said after the victory.

It should be remembered that Murray was on a six-match losing streak until last week, when he achieved his first victory of the year in Doha.

This time, with the victory in the tournament debut in the United Arab Emirates, he reached 500 ATP victories on hard courts. The exclusive historical list is led by Roger Federer (783), Novak Djokovic (700), Andre Agassi (592) and Rafael Nadal (518).

“I still love to compete and I still love the game, but it gets harder and harder to compete as you get older, to keep your body fit and fresh,” he said.

The match against the Canadian Denis Shapovalov was not without its curiosities, after, in the last hours, the scotch, champion of three Grand Slam titles and two-time Olympic champion, spoke about the South American tour on the ATP circuit, giving him a push for the future. “South America should have its own tour with its Masters series. The way the fans support the tournaments there is incredible. Tennis is clearly part of their sporting culture“.

Now, he is back in the news but for his own future.
