Written by Taiwo Adediran on January 15, 2016
Andy Murray will kick off his Australian Open campaign against Alexander Zverev. The World Number two, who is a four-time finalist in Melbourne, beat the German in straight sets in the Hopman Cup recently.
The twenty-eight-year-old Scot has been seeded second at this year’s event, as he aims for his third Grand Slam title.
Current champion Novak Djokovic, who beat Murray in last year’s final, will face up and coming Hyeon Chung, while Roger Federer, who won the last of his four Australian titles in 2010, plays Nikoloz Basilashvili. However, world Number five, Rafael Nadal has been handed a tough draw in the opening round against fellow Spaniard Fernando Verdasco.
