Nadal Ready To Let Rip Remodelled Serve At Australian Open

Andy Murray Says Australian Open Could Be Last Tournament

Murray, 31, struggled to share the news at the Australian Open in Melbourne, which he withdrew from past year due to injury.

"I think I was seeking confirmation about my level of play", he said.

The quality may not be the best, but it will be fascinating to see Murray push through the pain in a final bid to get a win at a tournament he's been a runner-up at on five occsions.

Murray announced yesterday that this will be his final season in tennis.

"I think he is very fit right now".

The Dane achieved a career milestone at Melbourne Park to claim her maiden Grand Slam past year, but also revealed she was suffering the debilitating auto-immune condition rheumatoid arthritis.

"Of course, I hope that he can play a good Australian Open and he can keep playing beyond that, really finish the way he wants to at Wimbledon", said 20-time Grand Slam champion, who begins his Australian Open title defence on Monday against Denis Istomin.

"I don't want to continue playing that way".

The former Wimbledon runner-up looked in good shape as he returned from injury in Doha, reaching the final of the Qatar Open.

Support immediately poured in from friends and fans around the world.

Nadal has struggled to overcome niggling injuries in recent years, but when at his best there's no doubting the 17-time grand slam champion's firepower.

"It's kind of hard to put into words, but I can definitely tell the difference whether it's just soreness from training or soreness from that (arthritis)".

"Anyone who has seen Andy around the courts and the ground, will know even walking is painful, clearly that hip is giving him a lot of pain. We will all be cheering for you these next few months".

Federer (+550), Rafael Nadal (+800) and Alexander "Sascha" Zverev (+900) round out the top four and are the only other players under 25-1 at 5Dimes.

The narrative on the men's side will likely revolve around the two players who claimed 12 of the last 14 majors - Federer and world No. 1 Novak Djokovic.

"When you are going on court every day without the clear goal because you can not move well, you have pain, then is a moment to take a decision", Nadal said of Murray's decision. "I'm just taking it as a nice, fun challenge", the third-seeded Wozniacki said. I need time to get over it and then to know what my next steps are going to be.

"But I guess you can't do anything about it".

"Your greatest impact on the world may be yet to come".

Second-ranked Angelique Kerber has already indicated her priority for 2019 will be the French Open, the only Slam to elude the 30-year-old German in her career.

The former world number one reminded tennis colleagues of his constant professionalism as he hit some practice games with Bulgaria's Grigor Dimitrov in Melbourne. It's hardly surprising that we're hearing this, when less than 3% of people shown playing sport in national newspapers are women.

"I'm still feel a little behind but that will come with more matches - hopefully more in the main draw".
