Andy Murray will face world number one Novak Djokovic in a practice match on Thursday as part of his preparations for the Australian Open.

Murray has lost four times to Djokovic in the Australian Open final.

Three-time Grand Slam champion Murray missed most of last season after hip surgery and has tumbled down the rankings to 230th.

Australian Open organisers said the match would be open to the public.

Murray, a five-time runner-up at Melbourne Park, played just six tournaments in 2018 and has used his protected ranking to enter the first Grand Slam of the year.

The Scot will not be seeded in Thursday’s draw (from 07:00 GMT) for the opening Grand Slam of the year and so could face a top-ranked player in the first round.

Murray’s first tournament since September ended last week with a second-round defeat by Russian world number 16 Daniil Medvedev at the Brisbane International.

The Australian Open starts on Monday and runs until 27 January.
