Three-time Grand Slam champion Murray faces Spanish 22nd seed Roberto Bautista Agut not before 07:00 GMT.

"I'd like to go out on my terms": Federer hints retirement plan after Murray announcement Swiss tennis ace Roger Federer says that he hopes injury doesn't force his hand when it comes time to step away from tennis amid Andy Murray's tearful announcement that his career is coming to an end due to a hip problem.

"Everybody knows when Andy goes on court he gives 100%". "You will always be someone that impacted the sport in so many different ways", wrote Kyrgios on Instagram.

"Obviously you see me running around a tennis court, walking in between points, and obviously I know it doesn't' look good ... look comfortable".

Much like Murray, Nadal is battling the toll of the punishing style of play that's at the core of his game.

Murray is one of seven Britons opening their tournaments at Melbourne Park on Monday, with only women's number one Johanna Konta playing on Tuesday. She's still the favorite with the bookmakers, but with so many Grand Slam champions in the field, nothing is guaranteed.

With some huge names unseeded in this year's edition of the Australian Open, there was always potential for some mammoth clashes - and the draw did not disappoint! Magda Linette is up first for the Japanese, who lost the only previous meeting between the pair in Washington past year.

It's no accident that I've written first British man to win Wimbledon since 1936.

"She has been so successful in the game". Now I feel refreshed to start the year, but still I am a little bit back with everything, preparation and matches. "We like him. He doesn't have many enemies, to be quite honest", the world number three said of the three-time Grand Slam champion and double Olympic gold medal victor.

Porteous also posted on Twitter: "Fraser Murray and I couldn't have asked for a better role model".

Stephens' last six Grand Slams have yielded one title, one final, one quarter-final and three first-round exits, which rather sums up the fifth seed's unpredictability. Is not nice to finish like this because is great that you finish when you want to finish, not because of another thing.

The Australian Open, the first Grand Slam of the 2019 tennis season, kicks off Sunday night (7 p.m. ET, ESPN 2).

Unseeded Kyrgios drew No. 16 Milos Raonic and that cannon of a serve in the first round.

"I think especially as an athlete, you're even more aware of it".

Murray said he had an option of another operation on his troublesome hip, but it was more about his quality of life after hanging up his racquet.

The 23-year-old, who will climb into top 70 as a result, beat Monday's opponent Fritz on his way to the final.

Evans, 28, came through qualifying to reach the main draw of a Slam for the first time since a drugs ban a year ago and plays Japan's Tatsuma Ito in his opener.

"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)".

"I hope you can overcome this".
