Andy Murray much better than Djokovic. KYRGIOS

Murray, a three-time Grand Slam champion and former world number one, has been suffering because of a hip injury.

Meanwhile, Federer is hoping for an Australian Open hat-trick after winning in 2017 and 2018.

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 US Open wins.

In the opposite half of the draw as Novak Djokovic, the odds-on favorite to win the title, Federer begins against veteran Denis Istomin (Monday, 3 a.m. ET on ESPN), but things could get tricky quickly, with Gael Monfils and Stefanos Tsitsipas in line before a potential quarterfinal against Marin Cilic, the man who pushed Federer to five sets in the final previous year. Then there's a resurgent Rafael Nadal, the likes of Cilic and Sasha Zverev.

When asked if the Australian Open could be his last tournament, Murray said, "Yes there's a chance of that for sure because I'm not sure I'm able to play through the pain for another four or five months". He's targeting retirement at Wimbledon, if he can go that far. "Andy was able to reach No. 1 during the Federer, Nadal, Djokovic era, making it the era of the big 4". "It just maybe looks that way".

The leaders are likely to discuss the still thorny issue of an impending name change for Greece's neighbour Macedonia. It has denied owing anything to Greece for World War Two since it paid Athens 115 million Deutschmarks in 1960.

"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 think his body took the decision (out of his hands) in this case".

SIR ANDY MURRAY has said he's "very touched" by the support he has received today following his announcement that he plans to retire this year. 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", Federer said.

Murray is due to play 22nd seed Roberto Bautista Agut on Monday in an Australian Open first-round match that could represent his last appearance on the professional tour.

Despite being the outright favorite to win the tournament, Djokovic finds himself in a rather tricky region of the draw - with names like Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Denis Shapovalov, David Goffin, Daniil Medvedev, and Kei Nishikori floating around as potential opponents.

"I know he will be immensely proud of those achievements even though he will be disappointed at the moment". "I watched basically the entire game a couple years ago", Federer said.

"I could live happily ever after with 99 too but if you are so close and knowing I am going to be playing this season I will give it a go!" He can play well in fast courts. They're both 31 and have birthdays a week apart in May, and they've played each other 36 times at the elite level. "That's always a good thought". No one wants to lose in the first round of a slam, I think. I didn't really believe in my physicality. It's not an obligation for me, I do it being willingness and I feel comfortable in doing it.

Mouratoglou said seedings and rankings would mean little if Serena brought her best form.

French Open victor Halep and U.S. Open champion Naomi Osaka collected their first major titles previous year, and Kerber won at Wimbledon to capture her third in a sequence of eight different women's winners in eight Slams.
