Murray tearfully revealed before the tournament that he was in constant agony from a hip injury and planned to retire this year.

Murray told Sky News' sports correspondent Martha Kelner that having the surgery could boost his chances of being able to play for longer.

"The last time I was here I was pregnant and playing at the same time, so it's kind of weird walking back on by myself this time", she said.

Andy Murray gave the Australian Open crowd a real thrill by forcing an ultimately fruitless deciding set in his first round match in Melbourne. "But, you know, I felt like I did all the right things today in order to get through that match", said the Russian.

Serena Williams has claimed 23 grand slams during an illustrious career but the American superstar ranked Tuesday's Australian Open first-round rout of Tatjana Maria as the "greatest win of my career".

"Why can I not be close to the top 10? he said and said his aim was to turn up at Melbourne "fresh" and win as many matches as he can. So it's just something I just have to do for pretty much probably the rest of my career", she said. I don't know my percentage, but was a lot of good positions after the first serve.

Chiefs roll past Colts, 31-13, to reach AFC title game
I really think that oozes out of him, and I think what we tried to do this year was create a culture where that was a premium. Allen, a seven-year National Football League veteran, is in his first season with the Chiefs.

But there were defeats for Cam Norrie and Kyle Edmund, the latter beaten by former Grand Slam finalist Tomas Berdych on the opening day while Harriet Dart, beaten by five-time Grand Slam victor Maria Sharapova, and Heather Watson also lost out. I loved it. I'm really appreciative that the people gave me that atmosphere to play in. "I am confident it's going to work well".

Seventh seed Karolina Pliskova beat fellow Czech Karolina Muchova 6-3, 6-2 and the 12th-seeded Elise Mertens of Belgium won 6-2, 7-5 over Slovakian Anna Karolina Schmiedlova.

In Bautista Agut, Murray found himself drawn against a player with remarkable levels of endurance, and ultimately, after a wobble, the Spaniard's superior mobility paid dividends after a match that lasted four hours and 14 minutes.

He sits behind only Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal, with the three players sharing the four grand slams previous year.

"He has put that through in the way he has voiced his opinions and the way he has tackled some questions and issues that have arisen and I think everybody has always been very appreciative of him". He will face unseeded Australian John Millman in the second round. All of us, the players, we're extremely happy that he ended up winning Wimbledon, Davis Cup, Olympic gold.
