It wasn’t his last game on the grounds of the All England Club - he will also play mixed doubles with Emma Raducanu - but playing with his brother Jamie has almost closed a circle. It doesn’t matter if Rinky Hijikata and John Peers put an end to his journey in the men’s doubles tournament, because the emotions he felt tonight are worth a whole career.

In the box there was all his family who at the end of the game listened with great involvement to his speech.

Time has not given him and at the most anticipated time of the year an injury cut his way to the farewell he hoped to have at home, in the tournament he won twice. Andy Murray retired two weeks ago from the Queen’s ATP 500 because he could not move his right leg with force or coordination, he went through the operating room to solve the problem, a cyst in his spine that was causing problems.

Andy Murray talked about his love of tennis. The former world number one has given everything to this sport struggling to return after every single injury. Murray has suffered a number of injuries - many of them serious - and has never given up by demonstrating an extraordinary resilience force.

Perhaps this is the great legacy that he will leave to the next generations: that desire to fight always regardless of everything and despite everyone. Wimbledon broadcast an exciting video, also made by its three historical rivals: Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal.

The Serbian champion wanted to pay tribute to Murray by presetting himself directly on the Central and giving fans a hug that will remain in history. In addition to Djokovic, some of his former Davis Cup teammates - Cameron Norrie, Jack Draper, Daniel Evans - Tim Henman, Martina Navratilova, John McEnroe, Holger Rune and Iga Swiatek - took part in the ceremony - presented for the occasion by Sue Barker.
