Murray admits he can retire happily after winning US Open
London: Tennis ace Andy Murray has admitted that now he can retire happily from the sport after getting the Grand Slam monkey off his back.
The Scot battled Novak Djokovic at Flushing Meadows to clinch an epic win at the U.S. Open 2012, giving Britain its first Grand Slam winner since Fred Perry 76 years ago.
"If I was to stop playing tennis now, I`d retire very happy, but I`ve hopefully got five more years or so at the top of the game," The Sun quoted Murray, as saying.
"That`s what I`ll try and do, if I can stay healthy and look after my body. That`s my plan," he added.
Murray, 25, revealed that he was getting tired of defending why he had not won a Grand Slam title.
"Since I was 21, I`ve been asked it and it really started to get to me earlier this year. Everywhere I went, I got asked the same thing," he said.
"A lot of people would come up to me and say, `You`ll get the next one, don`t worry about it,` which almost made it worse. I`m just glad I can move on with my career now," he added.
