As Billie Jean King said on Twitter on Friday: "Andy Murray, you are a champion on and off the court".

Murray's career is expected to be finished in a matter of months.

New experiences on tour are rare for World No.3 Caroline Wozniacki, but for the first time in her career she returns to Melbourne Park to defend a major title at the Australian Open.

The annual grass court championship in London is seen by most as the flagship tournament on the tennis calendar and, much like Murray, Federer sees the it as an ideal stage for him to step down when the time comes. The 31-year-old was reportedly not the only one in the room crying.

"Historically, it would be players on the Tour they didn't have much in common with".

Witty, honest, assiduous, decent - all are adjectives used in the last few hours to describe the father of two.

Williams, 37, has won 23 singles Grand Slams since 1999 - seven Australian Opens, three French Opens, seven Wimbledons and six US Opens.

No one less than Billie Jean King took to Twitter to write, "You are a champion on and off the court". No sport should be the preserve of the one gender, and Murray has always been quick to correct any journalist who implies otherwise. Your voice for equality will inspire future generations. "Honestly, I just want to hold the trophies".

Murray was surprised by the scrutiny levelled at Mauresmo during their time together. It's something former coach and childhood idol Stefan Edberg advised against. He said he understood his body and had a great team around him. Your hard work and perseverance taught me so much.

"The serve was always a thing that I tried to improve, and I think I did".

Last year, seeded four, he crashed out in the last 32 to South Korea's Chung Hyeon and has only reached one quarter-final in 14 major appearances.

Attuned to the insidiousness of misogyny, Murray proceeded to speak out, to criticize, to call for equality. People of Australia love sport, nurture the sport values. "When he was a kid, he was little bit a bad boy. I'm just trying to learn my body, getting to know my body even better".

Murray understandably doesn't talk much about it in interviews, saying that he was too young to fully understand what was happening at the time.

Porteous also posted on Twitter: "Fraser Murray and I couldn't have asked for a better role model. They love their tennis, as well". "That's great, but the whole of tennis should capitalize on it, not just the men's game", he said. He also won the U.S. Open in 2012 and Olympic gold medals in 2012 and 2016.

"Maybe also the way I play tennis, maybe it's smoother than the other guys", said Federer, who is renowned for a style that appears nearly effortless, and his stunning, single-handed backhand.

The British star has never been shy to speak out on sensitive topics. I won a Grand Slam finally. What remains to be seen is if a first time major victor is in the offing, or if the Big Three will make it nine on the trot.

She returned to the tour at Indian Wells past year and had a roller-coaster season, forced to pull out of the French Open fourth round with a pectoral muscle injury and was later beaten by Angelique Kerber in the final at Wimbledon. I can still play to a level, but not a level I am happy playing at. I really appreciate what he's done for women's tennis. When his peers remained silent, Murray put himself on the front line in the fight against sexism in sport.

"Have I become a feminist?"
