Speaking to Andrew Castle, he said: "His drive was phenomenal".

"I don't think it is impossible, but it will be very hard", Dr. John O'Donnell said on BBC Radio 5 Live's Sportsweek radio programme, adding that the player has exhausted every avenue in an attempt to soothe his troublesome joint.

"Look, I'm playing good tennis. I don't have to have it that way".

Roger Federer pondered the "luck" of his longevity. You deserve to retire on your own terms, whenever that happens.

In fact, he said the ideal farewell may have already passed.

Federer, meanwhile, just keeps rolling on and may still be the best equipped to stop top seed and raging favourite Djokovic from capturing a third successive Grand Slam title after his Wimbledon and U.S. Open wins. "I tried pretty much everything that I could to get it right - that hasn't worked".

He also told CNN he will not do a farewell tour.

"I don't think anyone will dominate", McEnroe added. "But yeah, sure, like a Wimbledon stands out as maybe a place, but there are actually also many others", said Federer. I don't think there's any doubt about that.

She said: "For me it's a little bit tough to change the person I'm working with every day because I get attached to people, to my team".

"So it's sad for me, but for all sport, because Andy is a very respected and likable guy around the locker room". But when somebody like him, he achieved nearly everything in his tennis career, is suffering like he's doing for such a long time already, and you feel that you are not competitive for the thing that really makes you wake up every morning and go on court with the passion to practise, to improve, and with a goal, then it is so hard. "The problem is it's not his decision, it's the body's decision and that naturally hurts".

The American missed the next four Grand Slam events due to pregnancy and the birth of her first child.

Andy Murray clearly hasn't lost his sense of humour despite his heartbreaking retirement call.

"Of course it is very bad news".

"I am knowing her now for a few years so I knew she could be much fitter but it's just a question of time".

Players and coaches around the world rallied around Murray.

"When the day arrives I can not do it will be the day to go and do another thing".

"I don't think I should because I think that would be a mistake".

"I had tears in my eyes and said 'My hip is killing me".

Simona Halep admits she goes into the Australian Open under-prepared. Last year I drew [Kevin] Anderson, this year Berdych. The injury has left him unable to manage even simple tasks, such as putting socks and shoes on.

"Seems like he had not very long career because today players are playing that long".

The world number two limped away from Melbourne Park a year ago, forced to retire in pain from his quarter-final with Marin Cilic. "We like him. He's a good guy, Hall of Famer, legend", Federer said.
