Watch Andy Murray's emotional potential farewell after Australian Open loss

Watch Andy Murray's emotional potential farewell after Australian Open loss

An emotional Murray opened up about the personal agony of his battered right hip after losing an epic Australian Open five-setter to Roberto Bautista Agut two days earlier.

However, he did suggest in his on-court interview that there was still a chance he could return to Melbourne.

Katie Boulter sprung a surprise as she beat veteran tour player Ekaterina Makarova 6-0 4-6 7-6. Because of the way the last six months of competing have gone, I could win but it's likely that I won't. Murray received a standing ovation as he came out to serve. Look, it was brilliant. "Yeah, I really enjoyed it".

She believed she had taken the win after reaching seven in the deciding tie-break - before realising it was the first to ten under the new format at the Australian Open.

However, show up he did, and what was potentially his last Grand Slam match epitomised his entire career: a lot of spunk, a little bad lack, bucketloads of entertainment and battles with everything in his vicinity. That's something that I'll probably take into consideration. It was an wonderful atmosphere, it was brilliant. If I want to go again, I'll need to have a big operation which there's no guarantees I'll come back from. I see Khachanov winning this match and making the fourth round of the tournament. 'I was OK actually, ' he said.

'I've honestly loved playing here over the years, it's an incredible place to play tennis. Look, I mean, although tonight was not comfortable in terms of my hip. I was just blown away by what he did and yet I shouldn't have been blown away because that's just who he is.

"I guess those are the things that are important for the future".

"I would definitely play Wimbledon if I didn't have the operation, because my hip is screwed anyway", he said in his post-match press conference. "I'm aware of that".

They occur at bends in the river where the accelerating water creates a force called "rotational shear", which breaks off a chunk of ice and twists it around.

"It's a really big operation". But there is the possibility, because guys have done it before.

"I'm kind of conquering all the places where I've been awful", Stephens said. But because of the way the match went and actually how I finished the match, I literally couldn't have done any more.

"I'll probably decide in the next week or so".

Both players' fortunes have changed since they last faced each other over the net. I could play another match, but.

"He can take his time, there's no rush to make any decisions".

As the tennis world farewelled Andy Murray from the Australian Open, an extremely awkward moment left fans feeling uncomfortable. 'I hope that perhaps he finally realises how loved and respected and appreciated he is. It's an awesome place to play.

It only stalled defeat briefly as Bautista Agut served out the match to love. But I feel like I should have done better, you know, I could have done things differently.
