Andy Murray Says Australian Open Could Be Last Tournament

Caroline Wozniacki

The three-time grand slam champion has emerged as a feminist figure in tennis, notably hiring Frenchwoman Mauresmo as his coach from 2014-16.

A tearful Andy Murray on Friday announced he would likely retire this year due to severe pain from a hip injury, saying next week's Australian Open could be the last tournament of a glittering career. I think she came back to a very, very high level of fitness.

Andrew, a former United Kingdom number 1, asked Mr Maclagan whether he expected the announcement from Mr Murray: "I thought he might get through this year, but clearly it's a lot worse than I thought".

"The decision hasn't been made on the president", Djokovic said. "But I'm also not certain I'm able to do that".

"Of course, I hope that he can play a good Australian Open and he can keep playing beyond that, really finish the way he wants to at Wimbledon".

He then choked back tears and broke down as he revealed that he hoped to end his storied career at Wimbledon, but the Australian Open beginning on Monday could be his last event because the constant pain was so bad. Angelique Kerber denied Williams in the Wimbledon final; Osaka followed suit at the U.S. Open. Two-time Grand Slam champion Petra Kvitova tweeted, "Thank you for being such an inspiration @andy_murray".

"I have a severely damaged right hip", he said. "We will all be cheering for you these next few months". "He will see life doesn't revolve around playing professional tennis". "You will always be someone that impacted the sport in so many different ways", wrote Kyrgios on Instagram.

The 58-year-old former national captain and manager discovered the problem at a routine hospital check-up this month. In 2007 he checked himself into a clinic in Buenos Aires to help him overcome alcohol abuse problems.

"It's kind of sad to know that he might play his last Australian Open but I do wish him all the best".

"As long as I'm healthy and I'm enjoying myself, I know it's going to be emotional anyway". If you're not feeling good one day, then you take it easier.

"It is a similar feel to drawing Kevin Anderson in the first round previous year, but I was in a good place and managed to come through in the fifth set". Probably he is fighting to keep going since a long time.

The 2019 Australian Open, which gets underway today, offers Williams a chance at a reset.

The former world number one reminded tennis colleagues of his constant professionalism as he hit some practice games with Bulgaria's Grigor Dimitrov in Melbourne. The 32-year-old Nadal is ranked No. 2 and confident of extending his career for several years.

"I definitely needed a little bit of luck", he told reporters at Melbourne Park. He felt like he could do sort of the two and a half sets that we played.

"I guess everybody can understand where he comes from". Following her exit in Singapore, Wozniacki said she took time off to recharge her batteries, which included a visit for the lifelong Liverpool fan to Anfield to watch the English Premier League side, before returning to the courts on December 1.
