Andy Murray reveals tournament he would most like to win before retiring
Andy Murray has revealed which tournament, that has eluded his career so far, he would most like to win before he retires from tennis.
Murray has won 46 career titles, with his most recent coming in Antwerp in 2019, however the three-time major winner still has three tournaments in particular that he would like to win for the first time.
“The Australian Open would probably be one of them, and the French Open. On the ATP tour, Indian Wells. I’ve always loved the tournament & always enjoyed coming back,” Murray said on the ATP Tennis Radio Podcast.

Despite Murray having high aims for the rest of his career, the No.52 has dropped down to the ATP Challenger circuit this week after a first round defeat to Andrea Vavassori at the Madrid Open.
The Scot won his first round match in Aix en Provence against former No.6 Gael Monfils, 6-3 6-2, and will take on another Frenchman in Laurent Lokoli this afternoon.
