Emotional Andy Murray has confirmed he has played his final match at the Miami Open.

The former World No1 won't play again at the tournament as he winds down his playing career.

Murray previously stated he would retire in the summer but did not set a date for his last tournament appearance or match.

Now, the Scotsman has admitted he was left emotional after exiting the Miami Open in his final match in the competition.

Murray was knocked out in a dramatic three-set defeat to Tomas Machac.

And after the match, Murray spoke candidly of his experiences in Miami and sadness after his final outing in the competition.

In his post-match press conference: “I wasn’t thinking about all the matches I played. Just more that that’s the last match that I am going play here which is sad because I love it here.

“I’ve spent so much of my tennis career here and I would have liked it to have gone on a little bit longer.

“This tournament particularly for me is an important one so it was a bit more emotional leaving the court today than it might be at some of the other events.

"I am looking forward to the end now, give my best the next few months and get to be at home with my family.

“Miami has been a special place for me during my career. It’s been my tennis home really. I’ve done so much of my work and training and preparation here. I love the city.”

Machac raced into a 3-0 lead in the decider and eventually closed out a 5-7 7-5 7-6 (7/5) victory in three hours and 27 minutes, but only after Murray  had survived an injury scare and saved a match point to force the tie-break.
