Australian Open favourite Novak Djokovic had little opportunity to talk about his game during yesterday's pre-tournament press conference, as he was forced to defend some questionable decisions by the ATP player council instead.

Top Australian coach Darren Cahill, who until recently was working with world number one Simona Halep, said he would be stunned if Kermode was removed.

"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. 'We like him. He doesn't have many enemies, to be quite honest.

"But it's nothing new for me", added Nadal who admits he has to manage the workload on his creaking 32-year-old body, battered by years of his all-action style.

He said: "Of course, it hits us top guys hard because we know Andy very well".

Few people would have put money on Murray being the first of the "big four" of tennis to retire, and his imminent exit is a stark reminder that this golden generation can not go on forever.

The quality may not be the best, but it will be fascinating to see Murray push through the pain in a final bid to get a win at a tournament he's been a runner-up at on five occsions. "I said to my team "I think I can get through to Wimbledon" ... that's where I would like to stop - stop playing".

"I'm going to play".

Kyle Edmund, who has replaced Murray as the country's highest-ranked man, meets former Wimbledon finalist Tomas Berdych at about 05:00 GMT in the match preceding Murray's potential farewell match on Melbourne Arena.

"Obviously to see him struggle so much and go through so much pain, it's very sad and it hurts me as his long-time friend, colleague, rival".

"I know how not well he was", said Federer.

The Dane achieved a career milestone at Melbourne Park to claim her maiden Grand Slam a year ago, but also revealed she was suffering the debilitating auto-immune condition rheumatoid arthritis. They're tough matches but you can win them.

On the women's side, all eyes will be on Serena Williams as she aims for Grand Slam number 24.

Williams is back at the Australian Open for the first time since winning in 2017 when she was in the early stages of pregnancy.

The 31-year-old Russian, seeded 30th, won her maiden Slam at Wimbledon in 2004 when Dart was aged seven.

Melbourne and he is hopeful the omens will work out again.

Danish tar Wozniacki insists she is well prepared for the defence. He's a strong character but I think he is not going to remain silent. "It doesn't feel like it to me". "Obviously it was something that I really wanted, a big dream of mine to win a grand slam, and it was an fantastic feeling and an incredible two weeks".
