Is Andy Murray vs Roberto Bautista Agut on TV? Channel, live stream and how to watch Australian Open match

Andy Murray takes on Roberto Bautista Agut at the Australian Open as the 35-year-old looks to continue his sensational run in Melbourne.

Murray fought from two sets down to defeat Thanisi Kokkinakis in an astonishing comeback on Tuesday, in what was the longest match of his career at five hours and 45 minutes.

It also finished at 4am - the third latest match in tennis history - taking Murray’s time spent on court at the Australian Open to over 10 hours following his opening five-set win over Matteo Berrettini.

The former world number one now faces Spaniard Bautista Agut - four years on from their memorable Australian Open first-round match in 2019, which came after Murray appeared to announce his retirement from tennis before deciding to undergo a career-saving hip surgery.

But Murray is still fighting on and the Briton will look to extend his remarkable run and reach the fourth round of a grand slam for the first time since 2017. Here’s everything you need to know.
