Andy Murray ready to give ticket to fan after disappointing practice

Andy Murray ready to give ticket to fan after disappointing practice

With less than 12 hours to go until the start of this year's Australian Open, David Law (BBC 5 Live, BT Sport), Catherine Whitaker (Eurosport, Amazon Prime) and Matt Roberts on The Tennis Podcast believe this trend will continue, and predict him to fall before the semi-finals in Melbourne. It's unclear exactly when he'll be walking away from the sport, but it will likely be sometime in 2019.

So I have two contradictory wishes for this tennis season and Australia Open: first, that Williams wins the grand slam tournaments she needs to underline what she clearly is - the best ever.

Murray on Friday tearfully declared that his chronic hip injury had not been eased by surgery a year ago. I'm always telling him that, you're a tough player to play against.

"I wasn't, no. To be honest, I wasn't", top-ranked Djokovic said. But I'm also not certain I'm able to do that'.

"It's kind of weird because I grew up playing with her".

"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", Federer said. He emphasized that he would prefer Wimbledon to be his final tournament.

You have reacted on "Andy Murray much better than Djokovic. I tried pretty much everything that I could to get it right - that hasn't worked". Hopefully you get to retire on our favourite court @wimbledon.

Barcelona planning to sell Coutinho and fund Neymar's return to Camp Nou
The club paid that last season and will be due to pay the same amount this season - but only if Coutinho is still at the club. While that deal seems unlikely, Liverpool should just be hoping Coutinho stays at the Camp Nou for a while longer.

LaFleur excited to work with Rodgers, Pack's 'incredible' talent
Green Bay interviewed at least 11 candidates, many of whom had offensive backgrounds and previous experience as head coaches. With the move, Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota will be on his fifth offensive coordinator in five seasons.

In Cuba on a wet road overturned a bus, killing 7 people
Two Argentine women, a German woman and a French man were among those killed in the accident on Thursday, Radio Guantanamo said. Some 33 people were injured, including citizens from the United Kingdom , the US, Canada, France, the Netherlands and Spain.

Andy Murray is in great terms with nearly everyone on tour and he managed also to have a special bond with the so-called "bad boy" Nick Kyrgios.

"I feel like in a way I am, but in other parts I'm very, like, three years old mentality, you know?" "I think it must have been a very long couple of years for him now". "But I know that it's likely that I won't and it's going to be uncomfortable". Inspired by his staunch feminist mother, tennis coach Judy, Murray has always been an advocate, an ally, and a fighter for women in tennis and all of sports.

Between them, Federer and Djokovic have won eight of the past nine Australian Open titles, and 12 of the past 15, with Marat Safin (2005), Nadal (2009) and Stan Wawrinka (2014) the only gatecrashers to their annual Melbourne Park party. Your greatest impact on the world may be yet to come. "Your voice for equality will inspire future generations", said former world No. 1 tennis player Billie Jean King.

"Hope he will make it through to Wimbledon and have the farewell he deserves", tweeted former tennis player Kim Clijsters.

"It is a similar feel to drawing Kevin Anderson in the first round previous year, but I was in a good place and managed to come through in the fifth set".

Fellow P7 pupil Katie Cullen also met the tennis star when he returned to the school, and she said he was "funny" and "very inspirational". "That's what I hope for him", said 20-time Grand Slam champion Federer, who begins his Australian Open title defence Monday against Denis Istomin. So sorry you can not retire on your own terms, but keep in mind to look to the future.
