Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic in his Instagram turned to Briton Andy Murray, who announced his intention to end his career this season.
“Tarbes, France, 2001. Then we first met and played against each other. Even then, it seemed to me that there was awesome rivalry at the highest level ahead of us. You took a very serious decision that is worthy of respect. We recently talked, and it was difficult for me to express in words the level of my empathy.
Throughout the Australian Open I will support you. The same applies to any subsequent attempt to compete in any tournament. Whatever happens next, I really appreciate all the fights that we had. Thank you for experiencing them together. Hug you, Andy. Hold on, “wrote Djokovic.
