How Roger Federer wants to retire from tennis

How Roger Federer wants to retire from tennis

Tributes have poured in for the 31-year-old Brit, who has won two Wimbledon crowns and the US Open, as the curtain prepares to come down on his career.

"There's so many good players in this draw, I know that everyone wants to win this tournament".

Murray announced on Friday that 2019 is likely to be his last on the ATP Tour due to the ongoing hip problems that have troubled him for the past 18 months.

"Ever since I have known him he always wanted to be number one and win Slams". "The serve was always a thing I tried to improve, and I think I did".

"I think it's possible for Serena to equal me, if anybody's gonna do it, it's Serena, but I don't think there's a clear-cut favourite", Court told Melbourne's Herald Sun newspaper on Sunday.

And the doctor who conducted the surgery concedes that playing up until the tournament at Sw19 will be hugely challenging for the three-time grand slam champion. "That won't happen now".

Seeking a 21st Grand Slam title and a record seventh in Melbourne, the Swiss will plough into his 20th consecutive Australian Open on Monday with a first round clash against Uzbek Denis Istomin.

Top Australian coach Darren Cahill, who until recently was mentoring world number one Simona Halep, said Murray was an example of the never-say-die attitude that separated the best from the average. "I was at my cottage in Fife with my wife and I couldn't even watch the last set on TV".

Under Florida law, the governor can suspend elected officials for criminal activity, misfeasance, incompetence or neglect of duty. In the weeks following the shooting, Israel argued that he had "given fantastic leadership" and placed blame on his deputies.

"It was very obvious for everyone, you saw it, you didn't need to be on court, to notice that he's struggling, that he's not moving as well as he normally does", said Djokovic. This time past year, Djokovic was still playing in pain, and at one stage in 2018, he dropped out of the top 20.

Corretja described Murray's style as something of a throwback, saying he may have lacked the explosive power of some of the modern generation but knew how to outwit opponents, agreeing with former U.S. Open champion Andy Roddick that he was unrivalled as a tactician. I fell in love with tennis after the epic 2008 Wimbledon final between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

Apart from the big four, there are several other players who are slowly making a mark in the tennis circuit. "We had wooden rackets, we had to travel 10 months of the year, we played every week, we couldn't take family with us, we couldn't take any masseurs, we didn't know any of that, we played with injuries".

"I feel like time has gone insane fast since I won here".

There are far too many exciting story lines that may meet their fate at the Australian Open which makes the event all the more hard to ignore. I can still play to a level, but not a level I am happy playing at.

"He's a good guy, Hall of Famer, legend. Obviously it was something that I really wanted, a big dream of mine to win a grand slam, and it was an unbelievable feeling and an incredible two weeks". "So now I have just to put my head down and to go and work". It's going to be uncomfortable.

I will always cherish our wonderful matches.
