   ATP player council president Novak Djokovic has reportedly voted against a contract extension for tour CEO Mark Kermode

They had a practice match together in Melbourne Park on the eve of Murray's teary news conference Friday, where he revealed the pain from his surgically-repaired right hip was so bad that he'd chose to retire after attempting one more run at Wimbledon - if he can make it that far.

Two-time Wimbledon victor Andy Murray has targeted next summer's grass court championship in London as his stage to step away from tennis but the Scot's surgeon says that his hip injury may prohibit him from making it that far.

Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic added their tributes to the outpouring of support for Andy Murray as the Scot gears up for what could be his final professional tennis match. I think to that extent, we are kind of similar. "We like him. He doesn't have many enemies, to be quite honest", the world number three said of the three-time Grand Slam champion and double Olympic gold medal victor.

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. "But I played great in singles and in mixed doubles as well".

"That's what I hope for him", said 20-time Grand Slam champion Federer, who begins his Australian Open title defence Monday against Denis Istomin.

"I hope it doesn't end with an injury", Federer said to of his own career.

'Was the first information I had that maybe Chris is not continuing. But it was for a good cause.

"I think the reason she still plays is because she is the favourite and she can still win the big titles, she wants to win the big Grand Slams and break the records", McEnroe told Eurosport. And because of that, I believe that is not good to have changes all the time, because is hard to develop a good project of work if we have changes every three, four years. Anybody would substitute their career with his. "I've tried everything I could to get it right and that hasn't worked".

"But we're going to lose everybody at some point". I am happy with it.

"I have covered six football World Cup finals and four Olympic Games but Andy's win over Djokovic that day is the most nerve-wracking occasion I can recall", he said. It's going to be uncomfortable. I've always been focused on tactics and winning and finding a way.' As for what comes next, Murray is considering having surgery to resurface his hip.

'That today probably he knows all the situation of the world of tennis better than a new person that should come and will lose a period of time knowing all the things, how it's going, how the things are going, no?'
