Australian James Duckworth in round one, trying to win his second Australian Open title some 10 years after his first, when he beat Federer in a dramatic final.

Murray, 31, announced on Friday that he meant to quit tennis after Wimbledon but also said that injury may prevent him from playing beyond this month's Australian Open.

Scottish rugby legend David Sole said the fact that Murray had been so successful during an era packed with so many tennis greats such as Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic made his achievements all that more significant. I don't think there's any doubt about that.

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. "What an honor it was for me and I hope that the crowd enjoyed it and I'm very thankful that he was willing to do something like this because it's not normal in any way and that's why I really appreciate it".

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. I am happy with it...

He has admitted that hip pain could mean the Australian Open, where he has been a five-time runner-up, could prove his final event, however. "I watched basically the entire game a couple years ago", Federer said.

"Andy, as I said, is one of the best players in the history". But it was for a good cause.

"I was disappointed and sad, a little bit shocked, to know now that we're going to lose him at some point", Federer told reporters on the eve of the year's first Grand Slam. He won everything he wanted to win.

"His record is phenomenal and he did it all not only with humility and good grace, but also with a dry sense of humour that marks him out as a true Scot". Anybody would substitute their career with his.

"I hope it's going to be a nice match, it's a great experience for me to play in Australia in one of his last Grand Slams against him".

"The serve was always a thing that I tried to improve, and I think I did". That said, it must be odd for Bautista Agut going into a competitive match that will have the feel of a Murray testimonial.

The American returned from giving birth to her first child past year and went on to reach consecutive Grand Slam finals at Wimbledon and the US Open. "Because of the way the last six months of competing has gone, I know that I could win", said Murray. It's going to be uncomfortable. I always had the feeling that we'll fix it.
