Murray says he is planning to end his tennis career during the UK summer, but does not know if he can continue playing through his pain until then.
"Wimbledon is where I would like to stop playing but I am not certain I am able to do that. I'm not sure I cam play through the pain for another four or five months."
His announcement came at a press conference in Melbourne, as he suggested it would be his last Australian Open.
Tearful, Murray had to leave the room after revealing his hip pain was still "not great", 12 months on from surgery, the Guardian reported.
