Chinese Wang Qiang seeded 21st at Australian Open

'I'm not feeling good, ' he said. Making that decision, I think I can get through to this at Wimbledon, that's when I'd like to stop playing. Not a level that I'm happy playing at.

"I'm surprised that I'm still at this level, that I'm still in the top 10".

Murray battled to contain his emotions at a news conference Friday morning, and had to leave the room briefly to compose himself soon after it started.

Murray is a three-time Major victor, taking the US Open in 2012 and Wimbledon in 2013 and 2016.

Murray is set to play 22-seeded Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut in the first round at Melbourne Park.

Six-time Melbourne Park champion Federer, seeded No.3 for his quest for a hat-trick of Australian Open crowns and a record seventh AO titles in all, opens his 2019 campaign against world No. 99 Denis Istomin, while fellow six-time Melbourne victor and men's top seed Novak Djokovic plays a qualifier in the first round.

After barely surviving a practice session with Novak Djokovic yesterday, Murray had to be excused early in his interview when he broke down in tears when asked about his fitness. The pain is too much really, I don't want to continue playing that way. Pretty much done everything I could to make my hip feel better. Murray has struggled to regain form since undergoing hip surgery last January, and was quickly dismantled by the six-times Australian Open champion at Margaret Court Arena before the players called time on their match after less than an hour. "Some athletes have had that and gone back to competing but there's obviously no guarantees with that and the reason for having an operation like that is not to return to professional sport, it's just for a better quality of life".

Djokovic heads long-time rival Rafael Nadal and defending champion Roger Federer, with young-gun Alexander Zverev seeded four as he targets a maiden Grand Slam title.
