Nick Kyrgios: 'My team says I should not play basketball too much'

Scottish rugby legend David Sole said the fact that Murray had been so successful during an era packed with so many tennis greats such as Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic made his achievements all that more significant.

It happened a day after losing the Australian Open semi-final to victor Novak Djokovic, but a year later, he was back raising a fifth trophy at the tournament.

Murray on Friday shocked the tennis world by declaring that his chronic hip pain had not been eased by surgery a year ago and he could end his storied career in Melbourne next week.

Murray was noticeably limping between points and only won two games in nearly two full sets, but Djokovic on Sunday denied he'd taken it any easier on his long-time friend.

She said: "It's big difference I can say inside myself because I did what I wanted to do". "And I feel like in a way I am, but in other parts I'm very, like, three years old mentality, you know?"

"We are very fond of him and he is a great person to have around the club". "I'm confident that I think it needs a good performance by my opponent probably to beat me", said the Swiss master, who warmed for Melbourne with victory in Perth's Hopman Cup.

Djokovic will begin the Australian Open as favourite to take the title for what would be a record seventh time.

Federer, seeded third, is not scheduled to meet another seed until at least the third round, where mercurial Frenchman Gael Monfils (30) could be waiting.

Mourinho lands job as TV pundit
They're not signing someone they don't know, they are going for someone they know, someone who has already been there. Mourinho was sacked by United last month and was replaced by former Red Devils' player, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

He faces Roberto Bautista Agut in the first round of the Australian Open on Monday.

Djokovic isn't in action until Day 2, when he opens against US qualifier Mitchell Krueger.

Scottish former world number one Murray tearfully revealed last week that severe pain from a hip injury was proving too much to bear and he planned to retire this year. Something was telling me back then that we'd have an unbelievable rivalry and experience of playing each other on the biggest stage for many years to come.

Murray's career is expected to be finished in a matter of months. "To me, he has been undervalued as a man, not as a tennis player".

Rafael Nadal was a junior rival of the Scot and the dynamic pair entertained us with their sublime skills for nearly two decades. We played lots of epic matches in the professional circuit. The tennis great underwent hip surgery previous year in hopes of relieving the pain and spent much of 2018 recovering.

Djokovic said he was proud of the kind of relationship he and Murray had fostered, and he was sorry to see his friend set to leave the tour.

"But I don't think he will say or that we should say that he's been unlucky, I think he's worked extremely hard and when he got to world No.1 or he won all those big event that he did, totally deserved them. he put in the workload and he's an extremely talented player as well". He also won the U.S. Open in 2012 and Olympic gold medals in 2012 and 2016.
