And 14-time major victor Djokovic hailed Murray in an Instagram post on the eve of the Australian Open in Melbourne. The three-time Grand Slam champion announced during an emotional pre-Australian Open press conference that he is planning to retire at Wimbledon.

"You are one insane tennis player, miles better than me, but I just want you to know that today isn't only a sad day for you and your team, it's a sad day for the sport and for everyone you've had an impact on". Murray has been offered another, more severe, operation that would ease his pain and improve his quality of life, however, Murray insists that this would not be an attempt to save his career. "That's something that I'm seriously considering right now". As an athlete, that's probably the biggest obstacle and enemy that you can have: an injury.
He earmarked this summer's Wimbledon Championship, which begins on July 1, as an ideal setting to step away from the sport but admitted that the pain he is experiencing in his hip may well dash those plans - and apparently this is an opinion shared by the surgeon who oversaw the operation on his right hip.
