"(Murray) will be a very important loss for us, for the world of tennis, for the Tour, for the fans, even for rivals.

Murray has said, 'I need to have an end point because I'm just playing with no idea of when the pain will stop.

When asked if the Australian Open could be his last tournament, Murray said, "Yes there's a chance of that for sure because I'm not sure I'm able to play through the pain for another four or five months".

It has been suggested that a hip replacement would be beneficial for the three-time grand slam champion, but O'Donnell added: "Andy has tried really hard and explored every option that has any real possibility of being helpful. That won't happen now".

Roger Federer revealed his shock and sadness following Andy Murray's emotional announcement that he is set to retire as he labelled the former world number one a "Hall of Famer" and "legend".

But it's now apparent Djokovic's untouchable touch was no such "moment in time", with Federer declaring the 2019 model Serb back to his best after adding majors number 13 and 14 past year to his collection.

Stirling Council leader Scott Farmer met Sir Andy when he was given the freedom of the city in 2014, and said he was "very nice" and "unassuming".

"I think to that extent, we are kind of similar".

Third-seed Federer begins against another veteran in Denis Istomin, the man who stunned Djokovic here two years ago, while the top seed takes on American qualifier Mitchell Krueger. His birthday is one week before mine. It's hardly surprising that we're hearing this, when less than 3% of people shown playing sport in national newspapers are women.

De Minaur thinks authorities have done him no favours by scheduling him on day one of the Open, two days after he was up all day and half the night winning the Sydney International. "I tried pretty much everything that I could to get it right - that hasn't worked".

Murray's hip problem first flared up at the French Open in 2017, with the Scot going under the knife the following January.

A women's final past year featuring two players aiming for their first Grand Slam title finished with Wozniacki holding off top-ranked Simona Halep for the championship. "I feel like I'm closing the gap", he said.

"Look, I'm playing good tennis". But it was for a good cause.

"Of course, she's not number one in the world, and I have a lot of respect for the number one but I still feel that if Serena plays her tennis and she's herself 100 per cent, I still think she's the best".

"Depending on how you match up with your opponent, who is going to win the big points, the margins are so slim nowadays that I'm just not thinking too far ahead". "That's the only way that you can keep having confidence and hope for a good comeback in terms of health".

Murray's career is expected to be finished in a matter of months. I am happy with it. I didn't compete with this new serve, so let's see how it works. It's going to be uncomfortable.

"On the court I will be in a competition to win my match and of course I will try everything to get the win".
