Tennis – Murray to face Zverev in Melbourne


Second seed Andy Murray will play the 18-year-old German Alexander Zverev in the first round of the Australian Open.

Murray, 5/1 with Bet365 to win the Australian Open outright, easily beat Zverev in the Hopman Cup earlier this month.
Despite reaching the final four times, including last year when he was beaten by Djokovic, Murray is still to win his first title in Melbourne.
Djokovic has been drawn to play the Korean teenager Hyeon Chung in the opening round, while the third-seeded Roger Federer starts against Nikoloz Basilashvili and Rafael Nadal takes on his fellow Spaniard Fernando Verdasco.
Djokovic can be backed at 8/11 to win the Australian Open for the sixth time in his career.
