Tennis pros react to Andy Murray's heartbreaking announcement

Inspired by his staunch feminist mother, tennis coach Judy, Murray has always been an advocate, an ally, and a fighter for women in tennis and all of sports.

'Realistically I don't think there is anywhere else to go to preserve his hip and get it better so he can continue to play.

Murray will face Roberto Bautista Agut in the first round of the Australian Open on Monday before deciding the best next course of action for his injured right hip. "But I know that it's likely that I won't and it's going to be uncomfortable. He has fought all his career and Monday's match will be the same", he said.

Another win at Melbourne Park would settle the argument once and for all, but Court said the American no longer had the fearlessness of youth on her side.

Federer reacted to the news on the eve of the Australian Open in Melbourne, where the Swiss great said he saw signs of Murray's downfall during a charity event in Glasgow in November 2017.

Andy Murray has revealed that he has been speaking to psychologists about the challenge of readjusting to life after tennis.

'If it is my last match, I want to try and enjoy it - enjoy the whole experience, which is maybe something during my career that I've not done. She's still the favorite with the bookmakers, but with so many Grand Slam champions in the field, nothing is guaranteed.

If Melbourne is going to be the place where Serena Williams finally equals Margaret Court's Grand Slam record tally of 24 (and a record eighth title here), she's going to have to do it the hard way. Instead, the 21-year-old used her power game to claim a first slam title.

"The serve was always a thing that I tried to improve, and I think I did". I couldn't believe he actually played. He won everything he wanted to win. It must have been a very long couple of years for him.

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.

The Romanian's consistency took her to the top of the rankings while Williams was away and she finally ended her wait for a first slam when winning the French Open previous year.

Murray announced yesterday that this will be his final season in tennis. Her Melbourne record was patchy before past year.

Critics say Court not only won the bulk of her titles in the amateur era, but her record was bolstered by 11 Australian crowns at a time when the journey Down Under involved an arduous boat trip that many top players declined to make. He felt like he could do sort of the two and a half sets that we played. It is the defending champion's privilege. That became less of an option for Murray, who is contemplating further surgery just to cut down on the pain he feels when he's doing such simple things as putting on his shoes and socks.

The draw is out and the players know their fates.

"I don't think [Aga's retirement] surprised me as much as it surprised everyone else", Wozniacki said.
