Andy Murray 3 Time Grand Slam Winner

As victor of the last two majors, he's a strong contender to win in Melbourne Park again and become the first man with three streaks of three or more consecutive Grand Slam championships. It's unclear exactly when he'll be walking away from the sport, but it will likely be sometime in 2019.

"He has put that through in the way he has voiced his opinions and the way he has tackled some questions and issues that have arisen and I think everybody has always been very appreciative of him and how he has stood up for the women's side of the game".

"But it is still so sad to see him so upset before the Australian Open and obviously hearing he is still playing with pain".

'I'm also not certain I'm able to do that'. "I want to do it as long as I can and give myself the best possibilities to fight for the things really I am passionate about". It's not like I wake up and my whole body's sore, and just aching, and it's too much.

"If I wanted it that way, I could've maybe said it after the Australian Open [in 2017] when I beat Rafa [Rafael Nadal] in that epic final".

Norrie comes into the tournament having reached his first ATP final in Auckland last week, although he lost to American Tennys Sandgren in straight sets.

That Andy Murray is the first of the long-time leading four in men's tennis to signal the end of his career is something Nadal has to keep in perspective. "There are many things why I look up towards her", said the Londoner, who is ranked 131 in the world. "Or I can do it, but it's not fun or enjoyable doing it any more".

The Spanish 17-time Grand Slam champion is returning after surgery on a troublesome foot injury, but insists he is recovered and raring to go.

"I'm still feel a little behind but that will come with more matches - hopefully more in the main draw".
