Breaking: Murray goes down in first match, bids Australian Open bye

Bye: Murray after losing opening Australian Open match

Andy Murray produced a superb fightback in what might have been his final match but eventually lost in five sets to Roberto Bautista Agut in the Australian Open first round.

The Briton, who is hoping to play at Wimbledon, battled brilliantly before losing 6-4 6-4 6-7 (5-7) 6-7 (4-7) 6-2.

Murray, 31, struggled early on, but had the Melbourne Arena crowd roaring as he took the third and fourth sets.

He said on Friday he would retire this year because of a chronic hip problem.
