Andy Murray much better than Djokovic. KYRGIOS

Andy Murray much better than Djokovic. KYRGIOS

In fact, he said the ideal farewell may have already passed. "It doesn't feel like it to me".

"We had wooden rackets, we had to travel 10 months of the year, we played every week, we couldn't take the family with us, we couldn't take any masseurs, we didn't know any of that, we played with injuries". Otherwise, he knew when not to push his body, was fortunate to be able to play well when training only lightly, and perhaps was blessed also to have a low-stress style.

"He has fought this erasure as well by fighting to get more women to play on Wimbledon's Centre Court, saying, "[They] need to maybe find a way of allowing for an equal split of the men's and women's matches across the tournament rather than just looking at one day".

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.

In an interview with The Age, Federer said he was hit hard by Murray's retirement and seeing him "struggling".

"I've spoken, not loads but a number of times, to psychologists about it, but nothing helps because you are in lots and lots of pain and you can't do what it is you want to do or love doing". I think to that extent, we are kind of similar.

"Well, everybody knows Andy, everybody knows that when he goes onto the court he gives 100 percent", the soft-spoken Bautista Agut told reporters at Melbourne Park on Saturday.

"But being honest, when somebody like him, that he achieved nearly everything in his tennis career, is suffering like he's doing for such a long time already ... probably he does the right thing for his mental health". It must have been a very long couple of years for him now.

"I didn't arrive to that point".

"I've been feeling good on the practice courts this week and missing Sydney has been positive for my fitness and my game".

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

Here's a full tournament schedule in Melbourne time, but if you want the cheat sheet, read on for the schedule converted to eastern standard time.

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. He successfully defended the title a year ago, his 20th major.

Sir Andy was hailed as a "legend" by the Scottish first minister after the tennis star announced he will retire this year.

Other detractors point out that some of the Slams she won involved only 32 competitors, rather than the 128-player draws Williams has faced throughout her career.

"But today it's him, tomorrow another one". She went on to add two more titles in Eastbourne and Beijing to bring her career tally to 30.

Kyrgios has a tough opening match against former world number three Milos Raonic and then a possible clash with former Australian Open champion Stan Wawrinka in round two.
