Men's singles players at the Australian Open will be permitted 10-minute breaks if temperatures at next month's Grand Slam reach hazardous levels.

Organisers have unveiled a "more extensive" Extreme Heat Policy after temperatures in the shade approached 40C during the 2018 tournament.

A 10-minute break was already in place for women's and junior singles, plus a 15-minute break for wheelchair singles.

Britain's Andy Murray and Kyle Edmund have been handed tricky opening matches at the Australian Open.

Andy Murray suffered a blow ahead of the Australian Open when he ended a practice match with Novak Djokovic early after winning just two games. The contest was played under match conditions on Margaret Court Arena but, with the score 6-1, 4-1, Murray called an end to proceedings

Andy Murray is on the brink of retirement and it could happen as soon as the end of the Australian open though the plan is after Wimbledon

Disappointing .. Kyle Edmund out in 3 straight sets to T. Berdych.

3-6   0-6   5-7

Andy on next and likely to lose too cos of that hip.

But better news with Dan Evans 

The 28-year-old beat fellow qualifier Tatsuma Ito 7-5 6-1 7-6 (10-8) of Japan, throwing his racquet in joy at the end.

In the womens ..

British number two Katie Boulter showed her quality to win the Australian Open's first final-set tiebreak and beat Russian 2015 semi-finalist Ekaterina Makarova.

Boulter, 22, thought she had won after reaching seven in the decider - before realising it was the first to 10.

She composed herself to clinch a 6-0 4-6 7-6 (10-6) win.

H. Watson and H. Dart go out.
