Andy Murray's Former Coach Says Tennis Champion Wants Wimbledon Send Off

Andy Murray's Former Coach Says Tennis Champion Wants Wimbledon Send Off

I just want to enjoy playing in the biggest stadiums, playing in the biggest matches.

The former World No.1 shocked the tennis world on Friday when he announced he'll be retiring in 2019. "I've tried everything I could to get it right and that hasn't worked".

Murray broke down on Friday when he told a news conference that the severe pain from his troublesome right hip had become nearly unbearable for him to play on.

"Ideally he would want to play there, but I imagine once you make the decision that you are going to stop it must get very hard to keep going with the rehab, never-ending exercising, and putting up with the pain". I didn't compete with this new serve, so let's see how it works.

Murray is now ranked No. 230, and is set to play Roberto Bautista Agut in what could be the final match of his career.

Asked about the possibility of a statue for Murray when appearing on BBC Radio Five Live's Sportsweek programme, Lewis said: "For sure. That won't happen now".

Roger Federer pondered the "luck" of his longevity.

NOVAK DJOKOVIC has posted a heartfelt tribute to Andy Murray on Instagram after admitting he "couldn't really verbalise" his compassion towards the Scot. Before I said without a grand slam, you are not a real number one.

Wozniacki - who has been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis - told reporters: "I think it's sad, I'm sad on behalf of Andy because Andy is so fun for me to watch".

World number one Djokovic starts his tournament on Tuesday. His birthday is one week before mine.

They grew up in the same place, the Spanish island of Majorca, and have been together ever since.

The Auckland Open and Sydney International, as well as the Kooyong Classic, also gave an opportunity to some of the upcoming players to get much-needed match practice ahead of the big event. For some, the Australian Open brings a sense of optimism - a new year, a fresh start and a favorable bracket. "We like him. He doesn't have many enemies, to be quite honest", the world number three said of the three-time Grand Slam champion and double Olympic gold medal victor. I need time to get over it and then to know what my next steps are going to be.

It's more a case of avoiding getting swept up in the hype, happier to play the joker and toy with all the fuss. But it was for a good cause.

"Maybe also the way I play tennis, maybe it's smoother than the other guys", said Federer, who is renowned for a style that appears nearly effortless, and his stunning, single-handed backhand.

Halep goes into the tournament as world No 1 and last year's beaten finalist but the Romanian is also on a five-match losing streak, including a first-round loss to big-hitting Estonian Kanepi at the US Open. The three-time Grand Slam victor said he hopes to retire after the Wimbledon tournament in July, but could step away from the sport by the end of this month's Australian Open, depending on his health.
