Legend Murray can be proud of achievements, says Federer

Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray

Serbia's Novak Djokovic practices for the Australian Open at Melbourne Park, Melbourne, Australia, January 13, 2019.

Wins at Wimbledon and the US Open last summer propelled Djokovic back to the top of the pile, an awesome achievement having dropped out of the top 20 earlier in the year as he recovered from elbow surgery.

Mouratoglou said seedings and rankings would mean little if Serena brought her best form.

"I think his body took the decision, unfortunately, in this case", two-time reigning Australian Open champion Federer told reporters on Sunday.

"It is a similar feel to drawing Kevin Anderson in the first round a year ago, but I was in a good place and managed to come through in the fifth set".

While two months' pregnant, Williams claimed a record seventh Australian Open title in the professional era in 2017 but missed out on her title defence while on maternity leave. We like him. He doesn't have many enemies, to be quite honest.

Andy Murray sensationally announced his retirement earlier this week, citing severe hip pain as the reason.

"She doesn't seem to be missing it right now". "Obviously I've been talking to her a lot even a year ago".

But the 28-year-old insisted she was managing her illness and was relishing the prospect of defending her crown.

"I feel like time has gone insane fast since I won here. I feel like I'm hitting the ball well", she said.

O'Donnell operated on Murray's hip injury last January, and the three-time Grand Slam victor acknowledged and thanked his doctor and staff for looking after him.

I need a player there so it depends on the club's decision. "I can not do anything more". To be fair we can not complain about what the players were doing on the pitch.

Fans will get to enjoy fresh voice recordings from the original voice actors for Geralt, once again, adding to the event's authenticity.

The Romanian said she was untroubled by the back injury that curtailed her 2018 season and was mentally stronger as a result of last year's loss in the decider. For others, say, Nick Kyrgios, not so much.

Roger Federer has said he was sad and shocked to learn of Andy Murray's retirement plans.

Konta is in a loaded top quarter of the draw that also includes world number one Simona Halep, who faces a rematch with her US Open conqueror Kaia Kanepi, and Serena and Venus Williams.

British tennis superstar Andy Murray will retire as one of the sport's highest-earning players in history in terms of prize money.

And question marks remain over the fitness of world number two Rafael Nadal who pulled out of his Brisbane warm-up but arrived in Melbourne professing he was "fully fit" and promising to unleash a remodelled serve.

Amid the excited buzz of the season's first Grand Slam for the world's top players, there's also a weight of expectation.

Last year, seeded four, he crashed out in the last 32 to South Korea's Chung Hyeon and has only reached one quarterfinal in 14 major appearances.

He then emotionally revealed that he hoped to end his storied career at Wimbledon, but admitted the Australian Open may be his last event because the constant pain was so bad.

Tributes continued to come into the three time Grand Slam victor after the announcement.

And 14-time major victor Djokovic hailed Murray in an Instagram post on the eve of the Australian Open in Melbourne.
