British tennis star Andy Murray is slowly closing in on his illustrious golden career that has gifted the entire tennis world with several memories to cherish. With a career of many ups and downs, the Brit is expected to bid the sport a final goodbye at the end of next year, believes former tennis player Tim Henman.

In an interview with Eurosport, Henman talked about the future plans of Murray and he indicated how Andy has not quite been in the best version of himself after losing the Paris Masters. He also talked about how much effort Murray has been putting in lately at the National Tennis Centre at Roehampton. He also added that Murray is still motivated for more glory and that the tennis world can expect great things from him next year.

Henman said:

At the end of last year, it didn't look like he was enjoying himself on the court. His attitude wasn't good. At this stage of his career, you want him to be out there not only having some good results but enjoying himself. He's not going to be playing professional tennis forever. I think for me, the wish list for Andy Murray is for him to play well and have some good wins and enjoy himself. So, yeah, fingers crossed.

Why Henman feels that the Australian tour is the perfect stop for Andy Murray:

Andy Murray last played at the Paris Masters way back in November and since then has not been in action. He is expected to be back for the Brisbane International as a warmup tournament for his preparations for the highly-awaited Australian Open.

Henman believes that Murray could achieve great things in Australia saying:

I think it just epitomized his fighting spirit. He's just out on the court with a metal hip, still with the hunger and desire and determination to find a way to win.

It was on the Australian tour where Andy Murray was last seen in his absolute peak of form. This year at Melbourne, he performed really well beating players such as Matteo Berrettini and Thanasi Kokkinakis in five-set thrillers.

Murray played his finest tennis at the Australian Open itself reaching the finals of the competition on five occasions but failed to land a single title losing to Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer.
