Murray fails to hit ground running in Djokovic warm-up

Andy Murray only managed to win two games during a warm-up match for the Australian Open against Novak Djokovic.

The three-time Grand Slam champion, whose movement was laboured, held serve only once and was trailing 6-1 4-1 when they called it a day.

Murray, 31, has played only 12 matches since returning from hip surgery last year.

The Australian Open starts on Monday 14 January and runs until 27 January.
