Andy Murray Says Australian Open Could Be Last Tournament

Tributes pour in as tennis legend Andy Murray says he is about to retire

It would be a sad day when Federer does finally retire from the sport.

Andy Murray is still hoping to make it to one more Wimbledon tournament before his problematic hip forces him into retirement. "I need a bit of time to get over it and then kind of know what my next steps are going to be".

"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".

The Dane achieved a career milestone at Melbourne Park to claim her maiden Grand Slam past year, but also revealed she was suffering the debilitating auto-immune condition rheumatoid arthritis.

Murray, 31, announced in an emotional press conference at the Australian Open that he intends to end his playing career after Wimbledon, but O'Donnell is pessimistic about his chances of playing in the tournament.

Murray, 31, announced on Friday that he meant to quit tennis after Wimbledon but also said that injury may prevent him from playing beyond this month's Australian Open.

Support immediately poured in from friends and fans around the world. Losing the No 1 ranking seemed to have a liberating effect and she produced an outstanding performance to upset Williams at Wimbledon for her third grand slam title. As the saying goes, "you can't be what you can't see", and by raising the visibility of his female colleague's achievements, Andy has helped to create role models for women and girls around the world. "We will all be cheering for you these next few months".

Of the many banged-up players on tour, Nadal may be the most able to empathise with Murray, having spent long periods on the sidelines with serious knee problems. "But for the most part I've just been doing the same things".

In today's column, Judy, who is at his side in Melbourne, writes: "Though these are hard days right now, I'm sure Andy will continue to have a huge impact on the world of tennis".

Improbable said Unity has hurt projects across the industry, particularly among smaller developers, leaving games in legal limbo. This change to Unity's terms came on December 5, 2018, but wasn't clarified directly to Improbable until January 9, 2019.

Andy Murray's announcement comes as a major surprise despite his recent struggles with injury.

"I feel good. If I am not feeling good, I will not be here", he said before revealing he had remodeled his serve. "I want to do it as long as I can and give myself the best possibilities to fight for the things really I am passionate about".

"I don't think you can ever write off an Australian", Millman told Wide World of Sports.

"Now I know how to manage better if that happens again".

"But I guess you can't do anything about it".

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

Second-ranked Angelique Kerber has already indicated her priority for 2019 will be the French Open, the only Slam to elude the 30-year-old German in her career.

Andrew, a former United Kingdom number 1, asked Mr Maclagan whether he expected the announcement from Mr Murray: "I thought he might get through this year, but clearly it's a lot worse than I thought".
