Andy Murray has confirmed he will miss the Australian Open after failing to recover from a hip injury which forced his withdrawal from this week's Brisbane International tournament.

The Scot has not played a competitive match since losing out to Sam Querrey in last year's Wimbledon quarter-finals. Kei Nishikori will also be missing from the Melbourne field.

In Murray's absence, Roger Federer is a 2-1 favourite to win the first tennis major of the year, while Rafael Nadal is 5-1 and Novak Djokovic, who has been having problems with his elbow, is 6-1. 

Serena Williams is 5-1 to win the women's event, while closest challengers Garbine Muguruza and Karolina Pliskova are 10-1.

The Australian Open starts in Melbourne on Monday, January 15.
