Hip surgeon pessimistic about Murray’s chances of playing at Wimbledon

After Murray announced his retirement, Kyrgios posted a heartfelt message on social media.

At 37, he's still targeting records at his record-equalling 20th Australian Open: to be the first man to win seven Australian Opens, the first man to win at least seven singles titles at two Grand Slam tournaments (he has eight Wimbledon titles), and the first man to win five major titles after turning 30. "But he's 31. Ten years ago, if he retired at 31, we will say he had a great and very long career". But Dr John O'Donnell, who operated on the Scot's troublesome right hip, said: 'I don't think it is impossible, but it will be very hard.' Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live's Sportsweek programme, O'Donnell also said that Murray had exhausted all avenues in a bid to return to the top level. "For me, it's just all the time making sure I get good massaging, good treatments, ice baths, stretching, do everything even more thoroughly than maybe in the past".

Italian tennis star Fabio Fognini has wished former world No. 1 Andy Murray all the best in his retirement days.

"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.

Murray said he's considering another hip operation, more to improve his quality of life than as a way of returning to the top level in tennis. "That won't happen now".

The three-time Grand Slam champion is scheduled to open against No. 22-ranked Roberto Bautista Agut at Melbourne Park, where the season-opening major begins Monday.

"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 and how he has stood up for the women's side of the game".

"I feel good. If I am not feeling good, I will not be here", he said.

"We played lots of epic matches on the professional circuit. But you can't manage that".

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.

"I guess everybody can understand where he comes from".

"I know he has inspired so many - young and old - to both watch and play tennis. We'll see how it's going to be here in Melbourne". "Obviously it was something that I really wanted, a big dream of mine to win a grand slam, and it was an wonderful feeling and an incredible two weeks". I met with you the other day and couldn't really verbalise my compassion for what you're going through.

Although Murray has spoken with psychologists, he's admitted that little has helped.

"I am happy with the motivation to do something new". Because of the way the last six months of competing have gone, I could win but it's likely that I won't.

"I think you just always try to figure out what's working and what's not, then you listen to the body, you try a few different things", Wozniacki said.

"I'm playing good tennis".
