Serena Williams shooting for Grand Slam history

Serena Williams shooting for Grand Slam history

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

Both players start their Australian Open campaigns on Monday.

"He's already had a huge impact in the school but actually he's got a job to do next, and I'm quite sure he will, in inspiring the children in Scotland and wider". "He has fought all his career and Monday's match will be the same", he said.

In a tweet from Hibs" official account, head coach Neil Lennon said: "Andy Murray is an inspiration and a role model.

Be it an uncanny thirst for tennis history to tweaking his own game over 21 seasons on tour, it is hardly a surprise Federer's astute rationale would include looking after his body.

Federer reacted to the news on the eve of the Australian Open in Melbourne, where the Swiss great said he saw signs of Murray's downfall during a charity event in Glasgow in November 2017.

That's because the three-time major victor isn't the only verified Andy Murray on Twitter, sharing a name with a sports writer at FourFourTwo magazine.

"Could have happened easily in the match against Novak, but it didn't, maybe because I was warmed up".

First-time qualifier Harriet Dart has the honour of opening up the tournament on Laver against five-time Grand Slam champion Maria Sharapova at 00:00 BST, while Katie Boulter and Heather Watson also have early starts. He can play well in fast courts.

Kyrgios also claims Murray, who has three Grand Slam titles, is a better player than world No 1 Novak Djokovic.

Murray has only entered the singles draw in Melbourne next week. "I think to that extent, we are kind of similar". I didn't really believe in my physicality.

Boulter, 22, says it is "incredible" to have gain direct entry to a Slam for the first time on the basis of her top 100 ranking, while 26-year-old Watson - who has won three WTA titles and is a former top 50 player - insists she still wants to achieve more in her career.

"First of all, a year ago she made an incredible effort to come back in shape after having a baby and actually she came back in a decent shape quite fast", Mouratoglou told Reuters in an interview.

She returned to the tour at Indian Wells previous year and had a roller-coaster season, forced to pull out of the French Open fourth round with a pectoral muscle injury and was later beaten by Angelique Kerber in the final at Wimbledon.

The two-time semi-finalist also has a formidable record in Melbourne, having reached at least the quarter-finals in seven of the past eight years.

"It would have been cool to play doubles with him once", he said. "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 have been part of a great rivalry between the best players for a long time, and a great competitor". "I think it's a positive to be here as the defending champion". That became less of an option for Murray, who is contemplating further surgery just to cut down on the pain he feels when he's doing such simple things as putting on his shoes and socks.
