Tennis pros react to Andy Murray's heartbreaking announcement

Rafael Nadal believes Murray's looming retirement is the correct move for his mental health, revealing the psychological toll of his own injury battles as he eyes off a return to Australian Open glory in the twilight of his career.

"It's quite a shock for me honestly because we are the same age, the same generation", Djokovic told reporters in Melbourne. "I'm not certain I can play through the pain for another four or five months..."

"Our trajectory to the professional tennis world was pretty much similar". His birthday is one week before mine. We have been discussing potential opportunities to work together, and I will be wearing Castore for Australia and remaining on court appearances as I have been so impressed by their quality from my testing in training."The co-founder of Castore, Tom Beahon was delighted to sponsor Murray". We played juniors together.

"If I wanted it that way, I could've maybe said it after the Australian Open [in 2017] when I beat Rafa [Rafael Nadal] in that epic final", Federer added to the TV network.

Djokovic posted a tribute on Instagram to a man he has known since they first faced each other as 13-year-olds in 2001, concluding: "Whatever happens, I will always cherish our unbelievable matches over the years and be grateful for those experiences".

Novak Djokovic lauded the bravery of Andy Murray as he expressed compassion for the three-time grand slam champion following his retirement revelation. And who will be the player to knock him out? But it was for a good cause. "I don't have to have it that way", said Federer, who won three of his 20 major titles in the past two years.

When asked whether the Australian Open would be his final tournament, he replied, 'There's a chance of that, yeah, for sure.

Bank of Canada keeps interest rate unchanged

Boeing-Embraer merger going ahead after Bolsonaro approval
It estimated there would be annual pre-tax cost synergies of approximately $US150 million by the third year of operations. Once Embraer's board ratifies its prior approval, the two companies will then execute definitive transaction documents.

He said: "Of course, it hits us top guys hard because we know Andy very well". We like him. He's a good guy, Hall of Famer, legend. "Anybody would substitute their career with his".

Williams has a tough road to an eighth title, with world number one and French Open champion Simona Halep a potential quarter-final opponent followed by Osaka in the semi-finals if the seeds hold sway. That became less of an option for Murray, who is contemplating further surgery just to cut down on the pain he feels when he's doing such simple things as putting on his shoes and socks. "But I know that it's likely that I won't and it's going to be uncomfortable". I am happy with it.

But the end is on his mind with Federer wondering whether he would like to go out in the place he's won eight Grand Slam titles. It's going to be uncomfortable.

And Djokovic said Sunday he was delighted to be back in Melbourne where his rise to greatness all began in 2008 with his first Grand Slam win.

Honest, courteous and self-deprecating, Murray always has been well-liked by his fellow players, as nearly all of them who were scheduled for media day here Saturday noted. Which leaves me big fella. these are a couple photos, that should make you smile and think, I was actually a little bit of a younger brother to you. Again, look, I'm playing tomorrow.

I give him shit about it all the time.

"I know what Denis did to Novak". I really appreciate what he's done for women's tennis.
