  • The pain is too much- Murray on brink of retiring

The world number one and last year's runner-up will face Estonia's Kaia Kanepi in the first round.

The father-of-two said although he hopes to play at Wimbledon in July, he may not be able to bear the pain by then and the Australian Open may be his last tournament.

O'Donnell operated on Murray's hip injury last January, and the three-time Grand Slam victor acknowledged and thanked his doctor and staff for looking after him.

"It's kind of sad to know that he might play his last Australian Open but I do wish him all the best".

He told journalists: "I know I've got no chance of winning this tournament and most likely I'm going to lose in the first round. It's just now that it's definite", he added, acknowledging the era of the "Big Four" - himself, Djokovic, Nadal and Murray - was drawing to a close.

The 31-year-old's 2012 triumph at the US Open made him the first British male to claim a major title since 1936 victor Fred Perry, who was celebrated with a statue at the All England Club in 1984. He won everything he wanted to win.

A women's final a year ago featuring two players aiming for their first Grand Slam title finished with Wozniacki holding off top-ranked Simona Halep for the championship. But Dr John O'Donnell, who operated on the Scot's troublesome right hip, said: 'I don't think it is impossible, but it will be very hard.' Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live's Sportsweek programme, O'Donnell also said that Murray had exhausted all avenues in a bid to return to the top level. Anybody would substitute their career with his.

"When you are going on court every day without the clear goal because you can not move well, you have pain, then is a moment to take a decision", Nadal said of Murray's decision.

"That's tough. I mean, I think there is definitely a few exceptions in the game, and I'm sure that (Murray's) been one of them".

Corretja described Murray's style as something of a throwback, saying he may have lacked the explosive power of some of the modern generation but knew how to outwit opponents, agreeing with former U.S. Open champion Andy Roddick that he was unrivalled as a tactician.

The longevity of that oligarchy, which also includes world No. 2 Rafael Nadal, has blocked several younger players from breaking through on tennis' biggest stages. "Les Petite As". First time we met and played.

Which brings us to his match with Bautista Agut, the 30-year-old Spaniard who could be the last man ever to share a court with Murray at a professional level. "I wish him a painless future in whatever shape or form that is, on or off the court".

First, things first, and Murray takes on the Spanish 22nd seed Roberto Bautista Agut in the Australian Open first round this morning.
