Current and former players have led the tributes to the double Olympic gold medallist, with 20-time grand slam champion Roger Federer among those to hail his impact on the sport.

Bautista Agut comes into this opener full of confidence after winning the 250-rated Qatar Open at the beginning of the month during which he claimed the scalps of Stan Wawrinka, Tomas Berdych and, most notably, world number one Novak Djokovic.

As the tennis world continued to digest the prospect of Andy Murray's retirement, an evergreen Roger Federer pondered the "luck" of his longevity on Sunday ahead of his bid for a hat-trick of Australian Open titles.

"It's quite a shock for me honestly because we are the same age, the same generation", Djokovic told reporters in Melbourne.

He added: "I did see, it was very obvious for everyone, you saw it, you didn't need to be on court to notice that he's struggling, that he's not moving as well as he normally does". So sorry you can not retire on your own terms, but keep in mind to look to the future. "The problem is it's not his decision, it's the body's decision and that naturally hurts".

There will be plenty of attention on this match as five-time runner-up Murray walks out on to court for what could potentially be the final time of his illustrious career.

"I'm happy. I'm enjoying the time".

With Murray doubting his ability to compete, Britain's best chance looks to lie with Kyle Edmond - now ranked 14 in the world.

"To be honest, I had a notebook, so every night before bed I would write jokes so I can present them to you guys", she said. He successfully defended the title a year ago, his 20th major. You know, but only the first couple of matches will show where his level's at. Well, if you are anxious about where to watch it, we have got you covered.

Konta begins her Australian Open campaign on Tuesday against Australia's Ajla Tomljanovic, who she lost to in Brisbane last week.

She disputed the bookies' assessment that Serena is red-hot favourite to lift the Australian Open trophy for an eighth time, taking her overall Grand Slam tally to 24 and equalling Court's mark.

An hour after Murray walks on to the Melbourne Arena, defending women's champion Caroline Wozniacki will take on unseeded Belgian Alison Van Uytvanck under the lights on Rod Laver Arena, the tournament's main showcourt.

"And I will continue to hope that the powers that be will find a way to capitalise on his success to create a lasting tennis legacy in Scotland and help to make us a fitter, healthier and more ambitious nation". I met with you the other day and couldn't really verbalise my compassion for what you're going through.
