Australian Open final time: how to watch 2023 men’s tennis Grand Slam final on UK TV - channel, live stream

The Australian Open final will take place this Sunday. How to watch in the UK and who will compete.

The Austalian Open is entering its second and final week and now only eight players are left in the men’s tournament.

Britain had a number of pariticipants in both the men and women’s tournament with Andy Murray achieving his biggest win since 2017 when he defeated Italy’s Matteo Berrettini in the first round. His second round match then lasted over five hours when he defeated Thanasi Kokkinakis 4-6 6-7 7-6 6-3 7-5. Unfortunately the 35-year-old then came undone when taking on Roberta Bautista Agut in the third round.

Similarly, British number one Cameron Norrie reached the third round of the tournament before being defeated by Czech Republic’s Jiri Lehecka. The world number 71 beat Norrie in a five-set match and thus ended Britain’s chances of having an Australian Open champion.

The third Briton to reach the third round of the tournament was Dan Evans. The 25th seed beat Facundo Bagnis and Jeremy Chardy before coming up against Andrey Rublev in the third round.

However, with only eight now left competing for the title, here is all you need to know ahead of the Australian Open final...
