    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.

    Murray, ranked 230th in the world as he continues his comeback from hip surgery, faces Spanish 22nd seed Roberto Bautista Agut.

    Edmund, who reached the semi-finals last year, meets former Wimbledon finalist Tomas Berdych.

    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.

    Andy Murray loses the first two sets 6-4 to Agut ..
    obviously hindered by that hip but with many flashes of the old brilliance.
    Andy then wins the 3rd set in a tie-break .. showing great grit and determination as ever !
    What a cheer from the crowd.

    Oh Wow, Andy takes the 4th set too in another tie-breaker !    7 - 4
    Playing better.  Amazing. Never dreamed he could last to 5 sets.

    Roberto Bautista Agut the match winner in a quality, entertaining, emotional 5 setter.

    Very, very well done Andy Murray.  ?
