The British number one and sixth seed for the Australian Open, Andy Murray has been given possibly an extremely tough road to the final of the first Grand Slam of the year, which includes the top 3 seeds. Depending on whether the people who are expected to win do win, Andy Murray is set to play against Roger Federer in the quarter-finals, Rafael Nadal in the semi-finals and the world number one Novak Djokovic in the final. This is one of the toughest roads Murray could have been dealt and it could stop the Brit from reaching his fourth Australian Open final in Melbourne.
The good news for Andy Murray is that he won’t begin the Grand Slam in Melbourne against anyone special as his first round tie will be against a qualifier. Round two and round three shouldn’t be too difficult for the Scotsman either as he is set to play against world number 80 Marinko Matosevic and world number 34 Martin Klizan, respectively. Round four is the first round Murray will face a true challenge as he will be up against world number 11 Grigor Dimitrov. If he defeats the Bulgarian, then he will face the top 3 seeds in the remaining 3 matches.
Andy Murray has had a great start to 2015 as he took part in the Australian Open warm-up tournament, the Hopman Cup, and represented Great Britain alongside Guernsey’s Heather Watson. The Hopman Cup is where both players compete in a singles match each and then a mixed doubles match against other players from a different country. Andy Murray managed to win all of his singles matches whilst Heather Watson managed to win only two matches. Great Britain finished second in their group and therefore didn’t reach the final. Yet, this was the perfect way for Andy Murray to prepare for the Australian Open and get used to the heat, as the Hopman Cup is held in Australia.
