    Stayed up to watch it . Interesting game . What struck me was Murray looked rusty and wasnt hitting his shots as well as he used to but his desire to win is still strong and he fired himself up for the final set . Murray was punching **** out of his legs if he didnt make it to the ball and smashing his head when he missed a shot , Edmund just doesnt have that combative nature , he doesnt look bothered when he loses .

    If I had the money I'd follow Andy to the ends of the earth.

    Tennis tournaments tend to be in quite interesting places so it'd be great to do that.

    Murray has announced that he'll be retiring this year, no mention of when though.

    He'll always be one of the greatest sportsmen to come from these shores.

    A shame that injuries have caught up with him, and a shame that he didn't win more Slams, but when you're up against 3 of the greatest players of all time in your sport, it's never going to be easy.

    I wish him all the very best

    It's the end of an era. There certainly isn't another Brit around to match Andy. Edmund is good but not top drawer material I reckon.
    I am really going to miss him.

    He's one set and a break down just now.
    This could be the final curtain.

    Very interesting now.

    2-2 Go on Andy.

    I'd have thought that the BBC would have shown this on the i player at the very least. Five live will have to do.

    Valiant effort. He canít possibly retire now. Even at 50% fitness, he showed heís still got it.
    Have the second op and come back in 12-18 months.

    Retire now, Andy. Don't risk long-term damage to your body or your hard-earned reputation.

    Great to see the big man on court again in the doubles.

    Great to see him out there and what a fantastic ovation he got at the start of the match.

    I wonder if a few finally realise what they have got because it's (almost) gone.

    A happy, smiling Andy was great to see. The greatest EVER British sportsman has some life left in him yet.

    What a return to the game, in the final of the doubles at Queen's.

    You can't help but admire his attitude and will to win. He's a real inspiration.

    Fingers crossed he can win tomorrow to top off his return and then go on to make a comeback in singles over the coming months.

    The young Hibs players are lapping it up, what an inspiring figure. 👏

    I saw Judy Murray posted a video of young Porteous and Murray down there.

    I see AM is to play with Serena Williams in the mixed doubles at Wimbledon. I canít stand her so Iím a bit indifferent to this partnership.

    Great to see Andy winning matches on the main tour. Got to the QF in Beijing before losing to an in form Thiem who's currently ranked #5. Today in Shanghai he beat the #56, Juan Ignacio Londero.

    His movement and sharpness are coming back so if his body holds up he might be able to give it a good go next year.
