Andy Murray's Australian Open participation was thrown into doubt on Tuesday after the Briton withdrew from the Brisbane International before his second-round match with Ryan Harrison.

Murray, who was last seen in ATP World Tour action when bowing out in the quarter-finals at Wimbledon, took the rest of 2017 off in order to nurse a hip problem but he has admitted that surgery may be required if he's to get back to his best.

An operation would rule him out of the Melbourne Grand Slam, which starts on 15 January, and bookmakers reacted by pushing Murray out to as big as 16-1 to win the title for the first time.

Murray's fellow Brit and Davis Cup teammate Kyle Edmund is in action in the early hours of tomorrow morning in Brisbane but the 22-year-old could struggle to break down NextGen Finals champion Hyeon Chung.

Chung was a brilliant winner in Milan and he's quickly developing into one of the most solid defensive players on the tour.

Edmund beat Denis Shapovalov in his seasonal opener but he might not be able to hit through the Korean, who frustrated big-serving Gilles Muller into submission in his first-round match at the Queensland Tennis Centre.

Recommendation
Hyeon Chung
