Federer 'sad and shocked' to learn of Murray retirement

Federer 'sad and shocked' to learn of Murray retirement

Zverev, 21, starts the Australian Open full of confidence after an impressive warm-up to reach the final of Perth's mixed teams Hopman Cup, despite his bad record at Grand Slams.

The doctor who conducted the surgery says playing up until Wimbledon will be hugely challenging for Murray. He had an incomplete practice match against long-time friend and top-ranked Novak Djokovic on Thursday at Melbourne Park, but only won two games.

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

"I'm just excited. I think it's a positive to be here as the defending champion". His birthday is one week before mine.

"Big increases in prize money, pension plan, new events, doubles initiative supporter, new progressive rules for injured players & LL's (lucky losers), challenger increases, facility upgrades ++", he tweeted.

Zverev played down the injury ahead of Tuesday's match against Slovenian Aljaz Bedene and a possible fourth-round showdown with Nick Kyrgios or Milos Raonic.

"I think I was seeking confirmation about my level of play", he said. Now I feel refreshed to start the year, but still I am a little bit back with everything, preparation and matches. Getting through the first round will be a major achievement in 2019 for the former No. 1-ranked Murray, who has slumped to No. 230 after playing just 12 matches previous year following surgery on his right hip in January.

"I know how not well he was", said Federer.

Ocasio-Cortez criticized after failing to provide workers’ compensation coverage
Ocasio-Cortez, a first time candidate, delivered a shocking upset a year ago when she ousted 10-term incumbent Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez by saying it was the Democrats, not the young Congresswoman, who was being "juvenile".

For me, I've got Novak facing off against Kei in the quarterfinal, and - given his track record against the Japanese player (15-2 over the years) - I've got Novak advancing through to the semis. But it was for a good cause.

"But we're going to lose everybody at some point".

"It's sad for me, but for all sport, because Andy is a very respected and likable guy around the locker room", Djokovic said.

"His record is phenomenal and he did it all not only with humility and good grace, but also with a dry sense of humour that marks him out as a true Scot". "Obviously it was something that I really wanted, a big dream of mine to win a grand slam, and it was an awesome feeling and an incredible two weeks". Anybody would substitute their career with his.

"It's a tough one, but one down the road he can look back on and be incredibly proud of everything he has achieved".

Murray's career is expected to be finished in a matter of months. I won a grand slam finally. It's going to be uncomfortable. Last year I drew [Kevin] Anderson, this year Berdych. At 31, top-ranked Djokovic is at Melbourne Park also trying to win a seventh Australian title. He insisted on Friday that would be for quality of life reasons rather than with a comeback even in the back of his mind, but he has been talking to other players who have had the same procedure. "I've tried everything I could to get it right and that hasn't worked".

"I'm fine. I'm going to play with the tape".

"That information is completely confidential, so I can't speak about anything that we spoke about in that room". "I'm just trying to learn my body, getting to know my body even better". "I feel like I'm hitting the ball well".
