Andy Murray made a sensational return to the Australian Open by beating Nikoloz Basilashvili in five sets in the first round, three years after he thought he had played his last Grand Slam match.
The three-time Slam champion is in his best shape since having his hip resurfaced in 2019 and faces Japan’s Taro Daniel in the second round, as he looks to go deep into the tournament in Melbourne.
Murray, a five-time runner-up at the tournament, will fancy his chances against Daniel, who he thrashed 6-1 6-3 6-1 in their only meeting during a Davis Cup tie in 2016. A potential match-up with Jannik Sinner would await the winner.
