Andy Murray opens play on the Rod Laver Arena on Tuesday 15 January at the Australian Open as the British No1 takes on Robin Haase of the Netherlands from 00:00GMT.

Murray, 25, is bidding to win a second straight Grand Slam title after his maiden triumph at the US Open back in September.

Also in action on a busy day of the year’s first Grand Slam is top women’s seed Victoria Azarenka, who takes on Monica Niculescu of Romania second on the main show court.

That match is followed by Roger Federer’s first-round clash with France’s unseeded Benoit Paire.

The evening session gets under way at 08:00GMT, when home favourite Bernard Tomic takes on Argentina’s Leonardo Mayer.
