Andy Murray thinks Roger Federer will be first Big Four to retire

Andy Murray, 32, thinks Roger Federer will be the first Big Four group member to retire from professional tennis. Federer, 38, is set to play at least one more tennis and he will turn 39 in August 2020. Rafael Nadal, 33, and 32-year-old Novak Djokovic are still dominant forces as they own the first two positions on the rankings list.

Murray appeared to be done at the 2019 Australian Open but made a miraculous comeback to tennis in June just six months after his hip replacement surgery. "I guess we will see guys play into their late 30s and see it as a positive.

It’s possible to keep doing it and playing until that level," Murray said, per Metro UK. "But if I was still playing at 38, I mean I would be very surprised with that. you would expect Roger to finish first as he is six years older than me and Novak, five years older than Rafa.

"Seeing what they are doing is fantastic. Hopefully I can compete on the court against them again before I finish."
