Murray's announcement that Melbourne Park could be his last tournament as a professional has made 37-year-old Federer's career seem all the more miraculous.
"I'm going to play (in Australia) - I can still play to the level", Murray said.
"He enjoys the Australian Open, and has been very keen to play there, but Wimbledon is the high point for him", he told BBC Radio 5 Live. As the practice went on, it was getting worse and I was thinking 'I can't do this.
Andrew, a former United Kingdom number 1, asked Mr Maclagan whether he expected the announcement from Mr Murray: "I thought he might get through this year, but clearly it's a lot worse than I thought".
"He has also been blessed with two daughters and I think he's grown up with a really strong female role model with his mum and now his wife is also a strong character so he is surrounded by great, strong women".
He will face Robert Bautista Agut in the Australian Open's first round on Monday. Because of the way the last six months of competing have gone, I could win but it's likely that I won't.
"At the end of the day you appreciate a lot your rivals because you shared lot of important moments in our lives", he said.
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.

When asked whether he would give players a break or make changes to his training regime, Emery answered: 'We are doing that. But at the moment I don't have news on that. "[Emery] has brought a lot of energy to the club", said the 21-year-old.
If he is to fall at the first hurdle, it could mark the sad end the career of arguably Britain's greatest ever sportsman, Sir Andy Murray.
"2017 (Australian Open was) a special situation. I love tennis. I love playing the game". "I can still play to a level, but not a level I have played at".
His 2018 season ended with another injury retirement in the US Open semi-final but Nadal still managed to win five tournaments in a truncated season, including a record-extending 11th French Open to leave him just three Grand Slams behind Roger Federer's all-time record of 20 majors. He won everything he wanted to win.
Although Murray has spoken with psychologists, he's admitted that little has helped. It was the most demanding, engrossing and palpitating event I have seen in sport - and I wasn't even there. It's going to be uncomfortable.
"But being honest, when somebody like him, that he achieved nearly everything in his tennis career, is suffering like he's doing for such a long time already. probably he does the right thing for his mental health".
I will always cherish our incredible matches.
"I don't know if that's also something that maybe is part of the equation".
