Federer shares shock at Murray's retirement, discusses end of his own career

The pain is too much- Murray on brink of retiring Tennis > Australian OpenVIDEO-'The pain is too much- Murray on brink of retiring

Murray beat Novak Djokovic to claim his first Wimbledon title in 2013 before winning the tournament for a second time three years later. Andy, who is very active on Instagram, saw the post and commented: "I'm sorry I couldn't be more entertaining today". "When I hung out with him, he was amusing". Thank you so much'.

But Murray dropped a pre-Grand Slam bombshell, breaking down during a tear-filled press conference as he revealed chronic hip pain means he will retire after Wimbledon - if he can carry on that long.

Federer, who is now ranked number three in the world, said: "I guess everybody can understand where he comes from".

"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".

"It's going to take time for me to deal with it".

"It opened a lot of doors for me".

"Well, everybody knows Andy, everybody knows that when he goes onto the court he gives 100 percent", the soft-spoken Bautista Agut told reporters at Melbourne Park on Saturday. I knew that his game was a lot tougher for a guy like me to play, I knew he was going to make a lot of balls, so I felt so young when I played him the first couple of times. He was a little bit immature at times.

"I am happy with the motivation to do something new". But it's not just that. "I think my first practice was on Rod Laver, and it was just nice".

Mayor de Blasio calls on City Council to pass paid-vacation proposal
Part-time workers would fall under a mandate allowing them to accrue paid time off at a guaranteed minimum rate. Officials claimed that New York's scheme would be the most comprehensive free healthcare system in America.

After her indefensible outburst at last year's US Open final, the American will be under intense scrutiny in Melbourne. Players accumulate injuries, but his have been low-grade and to parts that don't matter so much; no hips or back for instance.

"Maybe the way I play tennis is smoother than the other guys", he said. That's where I'd like to stop playing. Otherwise, he knew when not to push his body, was fortunate to be able to play well when training only lightly, and perhaps was blessed also to have a low-stress style.

"Tennis is better with you", tweeted current world No. 6 Kevin Anderson.

Tennis great Billie Jean King added her tribute, writing on Twitter: 'You are a champion on and off the court. Your greatest impact on the world may be yet to come. "Your voice for equality will inspire future generations", said former world No. 1 tennis player Billie Jean King. You took the baton of Henman and boy, did you run with it. After surgery, after months without competing, having trouble practising, of course there are always issues when you come back.

After Murray's retirement, he only had one thing on his mind. I have massive respect and admiration for your incredible career.

Another fan, Audrey Springham, wrote: 'All the very best to you Andy you have made your family and country and Scots everywhere and other British too so very proud'.

"When you are going on court every day without the clear goal because you can not move well, you have pain, then is a moment to take a decision", Nadal said of Murray's decision.
