Murray trains ahead of possible Aus Open farewell

Murray was noticeably limping between points and only won two games in nearly two full sets, but Djokovic on Sunday denied he'd taken it any easier on his long-time friend. "But you can't manage that", he said.

"It's quite a shock for me honestly because we are the same age, the same generation", Djokovic told reporters in Melbourne. His birthday is one week before mine. "Les Petite As". First time we met and played.

Second seed Angelique Kerber, the 2016 champion, has an opening match against Slovakia's Polona Hercog, while Petra Kvitova, fresh from winning the Sydney International on Saturday, plays Magdalena Rybarikova. "I hope I can put myself in contention as the tournament goes deeper, but we'll see".

Both players' fortunes have changed since they last faced each other over the net.

Murray's hip problem first flared up at the French Open in 2017, with the Scot going under the knife the following January.

Djokovic leads those 25-11, including a 4-0 record in finals at the Australian Open, where Murray has been a five-time finalist but never won the title. I didn't want to do that. But it was for a good cause.

The men's draw has Roger Federer looking to defend his crown although he comes in as third seed with world number one Djokovic holding the top seeding.

Harrington to captain Europe at 2020 Ryder Cup
Harrington has been encouraged by what he said was the "unanimous" support of Europe's players and former captains. The most important job a Ryder captain faces is to be liked and trusted by his players.


He said: "We know who the usual (contenders) are and I'm part of that bunch. 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". Anybody would substitute their career with his.

Although Murray has spoken with psychologists, he's admitted that little has helped.

"I'm happy. I'm enjoying the time".

"I have covered six football World Cup finals and four Olympic Games but Andy's win over Djokovic that day is the most nerve-wracking occasion I can recall", he said. "But I know that it's likely that I won't and it's going to be uncomfortable". "Tomorrow on the court I will be in a competition and trying everything I can to get the win".

"Nick Kyrgios having dinner with all his mates", Murray captioned the pic. He insisted on Friday that would be for quality of life reasons rather than with a comeback even in the back of his mind, but he has been talking to other players who have had the same procedure.

"The serve was always a thing that I tried to improve, and I think I did". I think he's entertaining.

"Probably he is fighting to keep going since a long time". No, no, I didn't heard about it, but I suppose if something, some crucial decisions like this, I don't know, I understand that somebody from the council should come to me and ask my position.
