Murray's surgeon reveals it'll be hard to continue playing until SW19

Scotland's First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, described Murray as a "legend" and wrote in a tweet: "Andy Murray is a legend - without doubt one of Scotland's greatest ever sportsmen, as well as an outstanding role model and inspiration for young people everywhere".

Ageless Roger Federer said on Sunday he was in a confident mood and warned his rivals he was "playing good tennis" as he aims for a third successive Australian Open title. "We are very fond of him and he is a great person to have around the club". But when somebody like him, he achieved nearly everything in his tennis career, is suffering like he's doing for such a long time already, and you feel that you are not competitive for the thing that really makes you wake up every morning and go on court with the passion to practise, to improve, and with a goal, then it is so hard. "For me, it's just all the time making sure I get good massaging, good treatments, ice baths, stretching, do everything even more thoroughly than maybe in the past".

"I don't want to continue playing that way". Getting through the first round will be a major achievement in 2019 for the former No. 1-ranked Murray, who has slumped to No. 230 after playing just 12 matches previous year following surgery on his right hip in January. Of course, I've seen Andy struggling you know with his hip and with his fitness for quite some time now. "That won't happen now".

Andy Murray was back on court yesterday, practising with Grigor Dimitrov at the Rod Laver Arena ahead of a first round match against Roberto Bautista Agut tomorrow that could be the final act of his glittering career.

"He has put that through in the way he has voiced his opinions and the way he has tackled some questions and issues that have arisen and I think everybody has always been very appreciative of him".

"I always had a good relationship with him".

Coach Maurizio Sarri is a fan of Willian, and although he thinks he can improve - he says he does not want to lose him. I am very happy with the player, because he's improving a lot, I think, in the defensive phase.


"I think his injury of the hip is something certainly far worse than mine, my injury because it's obviously something that he's been carrying for a while, for a couple of years".

Federer has skipped the European clay court season in recent years as he tries to manage his workload to extend a remarkable career, which shows no signs of slowing.

Williams' first-round clash with Tatjana Maria on Tuesday will be her first competitive match since the US Open final, lost dramatically and farcically to Naomi Osaka.

Australian super-coach Darren Cahill railed against a change on Twitter, saying Kermode had brought "big increases in prize money, pension plan, new events, doubles initiative supporter, new progressive rules for injured players. facility upgrades". Again, look, I'm playing tomorrow.

"I guess everybody can understand where he comes from". He told newspaper reporters: 'I know I've got no chance of winning this tournament and most likely I'm going to lose in the first round. He won everything he wanted to win.

Although Murray has spoken with psychologists, he's admitted that little has helped. I didn't compete with this new serve, so let's see how it works. It's going to be uncomfortable. I need time to get over it and then to know what my next steps are going to be.
