Federer 'sad and shocked' to learn of Murray retirement

Murray 'genuinely touched&apos by outpouring of support After receiving countless messages of support Andy Murray says he feels"much more positive about his impending

The joke did not end up being on Murray, as he duly ended the wait for a GB singles victor three years later after what did, in fairness, seem like an eternity.

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.

Among the more surprising coaching changes in the off-season was Halep's split from long-time mentor Darren Cahill, who wants to spend more time with his family.

His great rival Nadal expressed his sadness at Murray's impending retirement but backed his decision as the right move for his mental health. Of course, I've seen Andy struggling you know with his hip and with his fitness for quite some time now. We like him. He's a good guy, Hall of Famer, legend.

"I was disappointed and sad, a little bit shocked, to know now that we're going to lose him at some point", Federer told reporters on the eve of the year's first Grand Slam.

"It's kind of hard to put into words, but I can definitely tell the difference whether it's just soreness from training or soreness from that (arthritis)".

While knowing the limits of his body and full of praise for his team for being able to patch him up repeatedly, Federer admitted fortune had played a part in his longevity. But it was for a good cause.

The returning champion is still in astonishingly good shape. But yeah, sure, like a Wimbledon stands out as maybe a place, but there are actually also many others.

Meanwhile, Swiss maestro Roger Federer said there was a lot of things happening behind the scenes and said he would take soundings from other players on their views. "It just maybe looks that way".

"You took me under your wing as soon as I got on tour, and to this day you have been someone I literally just look forward to seeing".

But the most salient point he made was when considering how he has chosen not to work himself into the ground. Even now, more than 22 years after I had to accept the inevitable by bowing out from the ATP Tour, I get annoyed, irritated and depressed.

"He had a few weaknesses in his game", Cash said.

He pulled out of last year's Australian Open to have hip surgery and only returned in June at Queen's Club in London.

"My only goal is always to have been to keep going", he said.

As if the world No. 1 needed any assistance, right?

At a news conference, an emotional Murray, 31, said that next week's Australian Open could be his final tournament, owing to pain in his right hip, following surgery a year ago.

He declared himself in good shape for his own opener on Monday against risky Uzbek Denis Istomin.

Andy Murray sensationally announced his retirement earlier this week, citing severe hip pain as the reason. Before I said without a grand slam, you are not a real number one.

Few people would have put money on Murray being the first of the "big four" of tennis to retire, and his imminent exit is a stark reminder that this golden generation can not go on forever.
