Former world number one Andy Murray has looked like a player reborn in Melbourne this week, but can the veteran Scot continue his comeback run in this Australian Open third round clash against Spain's Roberto Bautista Agut? Murray vs Roberto Bautista Agut is underway on the Margaret Court Arena now. Here's how to watch an Andy Murray vs Roberto Bautista Agut live stream in 2023 from anywhere today.
Veteran star Murray has shown there's plenty left in the tank after coming through two five-set marathons to reach this stage. The 35-year-old's latest heroic showing saw him come back from two sets down to win in his second round clash against Thanasi Kokkinakis, an encounter which proved to be the longest match of Murray's almost two decades-long career.
Murray now faces the World number 25 Bautista Agut, who also had to overcome a two-set deficit to set up this tie after seeing off qualifier Brandon Holt on Thursday. Just a year younger than Murray, Bautista Agut reached the semi-finals of Wimbledon last year, and finished runner-up to Soonwoo Kwon at Adelaide 2 last week in the build up to this tournament.
The two players have face each other on six previous occasions, with honours even at three wins a piece, the most recent encounter ending in a straight sets victory for Bautista Agut during last October's Swiss Indoors tournament.
