Andy Murray is in action in the early hours of Tuesday morning as he takes on Robin Haase in the first round of the Australian Open in Melbourne.
A comfortable win will be expected for the Scotsman as he is by far the better player, but you never know in these Grand Slam matches and anything is possible.
Murray cannot afford to be complacent, but if his attitude and work rate is over the last twelve months is anything to go by, there is no danger of that happening.
The number-three-seed is the big favourite to win this match at 1/14 with BetVictor, so it is safe to say the bookmakers are backing him to breeze into the second round.
Murray is of course looking to build on his superb US Open win back in September last year, where he finally ended his wait for a Grand Slam title.
Now he has won one, he will expect few more and there is no better way to start 2013 than by lifting the famous trophy Down Under.
Haase can be backed at 16/1 to claim a victroy here, which is of course good value, but possibly for a reason.
The Dutchman has played out a five-set-thriller with his opponent before though when he gave him a big scare at the 2011 US Open, so he does know how to rattle Murray’s feathers.
However, the favourite has matured since then and you have to say that an upset really doesn’t look to be on the cards here.
It should be a great match of tennis to watch.
