Australian Open news: When are Emma Raducanu, Andy Murray, Dan Evans in action on Tuesday?
Emma Raducanu, Andy Murray and Dan Evans are among six British players who will feature on day two of the 2022 Australian Open on Tuesday.
All eyes will be on US Open champion Raducanu as she will make her Australian Open main draw debut in what will be her first Grand Slam since her fairytale run at Flushing Meadows.
The 19-year-old, though, has a tough opener as she will face 2017 US Open winner Sloane Stephens from the United States in the final match of the night session on Margaret Court Arena.
The match is unlikely to start before 10:00 UK time (07:00 Melbourne time) as it will take place after the Alex de Minaur-Lorenzo Musetti encounter.
