I've spent the last ten years cheering Teem, but watching today's match I so wish he's retire, OK, maybe after Wimbledon.
It's like watching a shadow of a man , knowing how brilliant at the net he was for most of his career.
It's not like his back is going to get any better, it's all downhill from now, just he is trying to strengthen the muscles around the bad back.
But I can never see him regaining the movement and flexiility he used to have, and he could be causing himself lifelong damage.
I want to remember the brilliant serve and volleyer we had , not a shadow of his former self. He's geriatric in tennis terms, so time to stop.
Besides, tennis has made him a multi millionaire. Time to stop and think on that he's been an inspiration to many, played a wonderful style of tennis not very often seen these days and the best tennis player this country has ever had in the modern era.
Tim, you were great. Now dont punish your body any more. Retire, play golf, look after and spend time with your wife and those two dughters of yours. You've earned it.
