Andy Murray is the unexpected marathon man of the Australian Open

Jon Wertheim: This is a celebration of the fourth year since Andy Murray’s retirement. A delightful departure from the 2019 Australian Open, when the tournament went so far as to produce a farewell video, well… how silly it looks today. Murray never formally retired. He underwent a hip resurfacing procedure and struggled to return. But now, four years later, it’s still going. He won a first round match that lasted almost five hours. And now he has outdone himself in the second round, looking more like the player who once emerged than the 35-year-old father of four with metal hips.
