Stay strong! - Djokovic hails 'brave' Murray as retirement looms

14 January 2019

"I said to my team, 'Look, I think I can kind of get through this until Wimbledon.' That was where I'd like to stop playing".

"Andy has tried really hard and explored every option that has any real possibility of being helpful", he said.

"As long as I'm healthy and I'm enjoying myself, I know it's going to be emotional anyway".

"I played him at Båstad past year [Swedish Open in July] and he got me there so I'm going to have to play some really good tennis".

"What I can say is the off-season was great for me". She was fit. I (have known) her now for a few years so I knew she could be much fitter but it's just a question of time.

"The way I've been going with my fitness and continuing to get that better, I'm pleased about".

Murray was the first British man to win Wimbledon in 77 years and will be remembered for battling his way to world number one in 2016 during a golden era for men's tennis alongside Federer, Djokovic and Nadal.

Seeking a 21st Grand Slam title and a record seventh in Melbourne, the Swiss will plough into his 20th consecutive Australian Open on Monday with a first round clash against Uzbek Denis Istomin. But, of course, there are periods of time that you don't see the light. "I watched basically the entire game a couple years ago", Federer said.

We already have a fair idea of how the new Supra will look, though, thanks to prototypes and disguised concept models. Of course, the video has been removed from Twitter, but the footage was nabbed and uploaded to YouTube.

Roger Federer has come out to say that he may retire at Wimbledon on the same day that Andy Murray has announced that he will retire after this summer's grand slam on home soil.

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. "You will always be someone that impacted the sport in so many different ways", wrote Kyrgios on Instagram. We've grown together playing junior events.

"I was pretty young when she first won Wimbledon, I have always looked up to her and it will be pretty cool to play her". "I'm looking forward actually to start it".

Djokovic won his third US Open in September to put him on 14 Grand Slams - three behind Nadal and six behind Federer. "Obviously it was something that I really wanted, a big dream of mine to win a grand slam, and it was an wonderful feeling and an incredible two weeks". "I can still play to a level, not a level I'm happy playing at", he said.

"I'm so impressed with her game, number one; her physicality; her movement for her size [6 feet] is excellent", said McEnroe, also an ESPN analyst.

As far as the second part of it, do I see one of those other guys winning a major?

Murray said he had an option of another operation on his troublesome hip, but it was more about his quality of life after hanging up his racquet. "You are one insane tennis player, miles better than me, but I just want you to know that today isn't only a sad day for you and your team, it's a sad day for the sport and for everyone you've had an impact on". "I think it's a positive to be here as the defending champion".
