Legendary Tennis player Roger Federer said that he was shocked to lose ‘legend’ Andy Murray. Andy announced on Friday that because of his chronic hip injury, the Australian Open might be his last event.
Talking about the same Federer said: "I was disappointed and sad, a little bit shocked, to know now that we're going to lose him at some point. But we're going to lose everybody at some point. It's just now that it's definite.”
Federer further added and said about two time Olympic gold winner, “Of course, it hits us top guys hard because we know Andy very well. We like him. He doesn't have many enemies, to be quite honest. He's a good guy, Hall of Famer, legend. He won everything he wanted to win. Anybody would substitute their career with his. He's a great guy.”
Interestingly, Murray has won Wimbledon twice and wanted to end his career at Wimbledon only but the hip injury has arrived as a major roadblock between him and his dream.
Talking about the same, Federer said: "Of course, I hope that he can play a good Australian Open and he can keep playing beyond that, really finish the way he wants to at Wimbledon. That's what I hope for him. It's a tough one, but one down the road he can look back on and be incredibly proud of everything he has achieved."
Meanwhile, Murray faces a first-round clash against in-form Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut.
