Djokovic, Federer on opposite sides of Australian Open draw

TENNIS AUSTRALIAN OPEN PRACTICE SESSIONS

A hard first-round draw for Murray sees the world No 230 face 22nd seed Bautista Agut, though the five-time Australian Open finalist will be buoyed by his 100 per cent record against the Spaniard.

It is FREE to attend with seats coming on a first come, first serve basis.

Kyle Edmund prepared for the Australian Open - and celebrated his 24th birthday - by practising with defending champion Roger Federer in Melbourne. Murray, a five-time runner-up at Melbourne Park, played just six tournaments in 2018 and has used his protected ranking to enter the first Grand Slam of the year. Andy Murray hopes to go far as he steps up his comeback from injury, while controversial home favourite Nick Kyrgios is bound to attract attention - good or bad.

The limp that has dogged him for 18 months became more pronounced during the second set, with the Scot grimacing at times.

The pair had come to the end of their allotted session but Djokovic continued to have a light hit with his team while Murray sat in animated discussion with his team for several minutes at the side of the court.

"It's a new situation where he's losing finals, also losing to Roberto Bautista Agut, how fit is he?"

British number two Heather Watson takes on 31st seed Petra Martic from Croatia while Katie Boulter, playing in her first slam main draw outside of Wimbledon, meets experienced Russian Ekaterina Makarova.

Speaking ahead of Brisbane, Murray said "I still have some pain in my hip", but that "I'm in a better place than I was a few months ago". But his kind of game, it's very much like Nadal, they're grinders.

"As long as Nadal shows up and plays, and can compete, I say we're looking at an unbelievable men's tournament".
