Commentary or coaching? Andy Murray reveals post-retirement plans
Andy Murray says he would rather pursue a career in coaching rather than commentary once his hangs up his racket.
The former world number one pulled out of Wimbledon before the event, but kept himself busy throughout in the BBC commentary box as he dabbled in broadcast media.
However, that hasn’t been enough to whet his appetite for more.
“It was a fun thing to do, and the first time in a long time that I watched the match as more of a spectator and not a player looking for tactics and seeing what I would do,” said Murray,whore affirmed his return to the ATP Tour with a win over Kyle Edmund in Washington on Wednesday.

“I also realised during that as a fan how long that is — it’s a five-hour match.
“I mean, it’s very difficult to do. I enjoyed it, but I do not think it would be something I would do long after my career.
“I think if I had a choice between that and coaching, I would rather go into coaching.”
