Facing Federer Always Been a Big Challenge: Nadal

Former World No.1 Amelie Mauresmo coached Murray from 2014-16

Murray, who hopes to play through until Wimbledon but is no certainty to do so, has battled a chronic hip injury for much of the past two years.

Federer has credited improvements in travel, in nutrition and in life balance for giving modern tennis players the ability to extend their careers well into their 30s.

After Andy Murray's emotional retirement interview, Roger Federer is thinking about how his career might end.

"Everybody knows when Andy goes on court he gives 100%".

"He's going to fight as he did all his career, and tomorrow's going to be the same".

An upbeat Caroline Wozniacki said she was relishing returning to the Australian Open as defending champion on Sunday and dismissed concerns health problems were affecting her 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. But Edmond has been handed a hugely tough first round match against Tomas Berdych. Let's hope his unapologetic support for women inspires future athletes to use their power as allies for women - that would be a real grand slam.

Opening on the outside courts, Boulter plays Russian Ekaterina Makarova and Watson takes on Croatian 31st seed Petra Martic.

Dart, 22, won three matches in Melbourne last week to qualify for the main draw for the first time, landing her with a dream tie against her "idol" Sharapova.

Yet she has proved in the past that such numbers mean little to her and Osaka said most in the locker room believed the veteran remains the one to beat in Melbourne.

"She has been so successful in the game".

Comatose woman gave birth to boy, attorney says
The woman's mother, Katrina Cesena, told reporters she is sleeping in her daughter's hospital room until the perpetrator is found. And the tribe issued a statement saying that they are working with Phoenix police on this case, and the family has a lawyer.

Gregor hopes to be able to do so as his tennis is "quite good", and he credited Sir Andy's determination as one of his most inspirational qualities.

"But other than that, I feel like it's really individual, I think from person-to-person, how you react to different things".

"He won everything he wanted to win".

The two-time Wimbledon champion posted a picture of himself with his mother Judy, writing: 'Best way to feel better after a tough day is a big cuddle from your mum.

The Romanian threw a private bash for 110 family and friends at a Bucharest restaurant in celebration of her long-awaited, maiden grand slam title at the French Open in June and partied until the small hours.

Through Instagram, a fan, the teenager Jordyn Kollmorgen, who attended the practice shared his joy for finally seeing Murray live despite not playing at his best. His name landed next to 16th seed Raonic, a former semi-finalist in Melbourne.

"He's a normal person", said Nick Kyrgios, whom Murray took under his wing when the Australian was an up-and-coming player. "The serve was always a thing I tried to improve, and I think I did".

He told newspaper reporters: "I know I've got no chance of winning this tournament and most likely I'm going to lose in the first round".

Federer is playing at night.

The Romanian's consistency took her to the top of the rankings while Williams was away and she finally ended her wait for a first slam when winning the French Open a year ago.
