Andy Murray to retire as 4th-highest earner in tennis history

Grantchester season 4 cast who stars with James Norton in the new series

Williams has reached the finals of the past two Grand Slam, and she looked relatively sharp at the Hopman Cup in Perth in the first week of January. Serena Williams was unable to defend her title here a year ago because she was taking time out after having a baby, and finished the season with runner-up finishes at Wimbledon and the US Open.

"It is a similar feel to drawing Kevin Anderson in the first round previous year, but I was in a good place and managed to come through in the fifth set".

Australian Open women's champion Caroline Wozniacki also paid tribute to Murray ahead of her title defence. "We like him. He's a good guy, Hall of Famer, legend", Federer said.

"She doesn't seem to be missing it right now". After her breakthrough here past year, she didn't get beyond the fourth round at the other majors, but says she's hitting the ball well.

But the 28-year-old insisted she was managing her illness and was relishing the prospect of defending her crown.

"I'm still feel a little behind but that will come with more matches - hopefully more in the main draw".

The former world number one and three-time Grand Slam victor broke down at a press conference in Melbourne as he said the pain had become nearly unbearable.

The Romanian said she was untroubled by the back injury that curtailed her 2018 season and was mentally stronger as a result of last year's loss in the decider.

Prime Minister Theresa May said: "Andy Murray has had a fantastic career and time and time again has made this nation proud... he will be remembered as one of the best and most successful athletes of his or any generation".

The draw is out and the players know their fates. He broke a five-year Grand Slam drought by winning the title here in 2017, then backed it up last year.

"I'd like to go out on my terms": Federer hints retirement plan after Murray announcement Swiss tennis ace Roger Federer says that he hopes injury doesn't force his hand when it comes time to step away from tennis amid Andy Murray's tearful announcement that his career is coming to an end due to a hip problem.

Missing Wisconsin teen found after three months, kidnapping suspect in custody
There is no evidence in the early stages of the investigation that links Patterson to the parents or to Jayme, Fitzgerald said. A shotgun believed to have been used by Patterson to shoot open the door to the Closs' home has been recovered by officers.

Top Australian coach Darren Cahill, who until recently was mentoring world number one Simona Halep, said Murray was an example of the never-say-die attitude that separated the best from the average.

Andy Murray's career will be recognised with a statue at Wimbledon.

Rafael Nadal revealed Saturday he was back to full fitness and has a brand new serve to unleash at the Australian Open.

It was a contrast to the way he started the year in Melbourne, where a sorry last-16 exit at the hands of South Korea's Chung Hyeon was followed by elbow surgery and a string of early tournament exits.

Djokovic won his third US Open in September to put him on 14 Grand Slams - three behind Nadal and six behind Federer.

He won his first grand slam, the US Open, in September 2012, and repeated the success at Wimbledon in 2013 - with 17.3 million tuning in to watch his victory.

"It opened a lot of doors for me".

"I feel good. I practised very well these days".

Federer, now 37, remains the chief threat to the Serb and he sounded a warning Sunday.

"I think he probably just wants that big send off at Wimbledon, to enjoy that crowd one more time".

"I also think that some people have some personal interest for sure".
