"But it is still so sad to see him so upset before the Australian Open and obviously hearing he is still playing with pain".

Murray announced on Friday that 2019 is likely to be his last on the ATP Tour due to the ongoing hip problems that have troubled him for the past 18 months.

Despite surgery and months of rehabilitation, Murray still finds himself in pain, and said he told his team he needs an "end point" which will be this year's Wimbledon tournament. "But also, it's not just that". He has made a decision to retire after he realised the pain would be too great to continue playing.

At a press conference on 11 January in Melbourne, Andy Murray broke down as he contemplated and then articulated an inevitable fact - that he could not continue playing competitive tennis, at least not at the level that he would have liked. I work extremely hard in the matches as well - it just maybe doesn't come across so much.

He faces the 21st seed Roberto Bautista-Agut in a tricky first-round clash on Monday.

For his "final" Australian Open, Murray looked rather weak on the court during the practice session against Novak Djokovic and admitted that he felt "helpless" against the latter.

"It will be a very important loss for us, for the world of tennis, for the tour, for the fans, even for the rivals that he has been part of a great rivalry between the best players for a long time, and a great competitor", Nadal said of the three-times Grand Slam champion, who he played in junior tournaments when they were barely into their teens.

He opened this season last week at the Brisbane International, where he won his opening match against James Duckworth but lost in the second round to Daniil Medvedev, showing visible signs of limping between points and struggling to move freely around court.

The No. 2-ranked Nadal enters the Australian Open as a legitimate title contender along with No. 1-ranked Novak Djokovic and No. 3-ranked Roger Federer, both six-time champions at Melbourne Park.

He would be, for some time at least, UK's best-ever tennis player and the first local in 77 years to win at Wimbledon, in 2013. Djokovic, too, will lift become the Champion for the 7th time if he wins this time.

It was the big-hitting Estonian who stunned Halep in the first round of the US Open last summer before going on to reach the last 16, where she took a set off Serena Williams.

"I didn't want to think that much about that match because it was really painful to lose it, but I learned some things from that match", she said.

"But it's definitely interesting times, I'd like to call it, not bad times in our sport", he added. "I love tennis. I love playing the game".

In the future, Murray may well be remembered - by those who are not British - as a dour, serious player, lacking in charisma, who was once among the top four players in the world. Please don't stop trying. "I'd like to go out on my terms".

Commentator Darren Cahill praised his contribution to the sport, as did fellow playerGrigor Dimitrov. "That's something that I'm seriously considering right now". Which leaves me big fella. these are a couple photos, that should make you smile and think, I was actually a little bit of a younger brother to you. The injury has left him unable to manage even simple tasks, such as putting socks and shoes on. "That's the main reason for doing it".
