Fans who want to watch the 2015 Australian Open final but can’t get to a television will be in luck, as the final highly anticipated rematch between Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray will be available live online with several options for streaming video.
Start time for the 2015 Australian Open final is 7:30 p.m. local time on February 1 (8:30 a.m. GMT) from Melbourne. The match can be seen on BBC in the UK and ESPN internationally. There are also a number of options for live streaming video of the matchup between Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray (links below).
The two have met twice before in the Australian Open title, with Djokovic winning in 2011 and 2013. Djokovic is unbeaten in finals at Melbourne Park, with titles in 2008 and a three-year stretch from 2011 to 2014.
Murray has not been so successful. He is 0 for 3 in finals, with the two losses to Djokovic and another to Roger Federer in 2010.
But the losing record isn’t bothering Murray, who just beat Tomas Berdych in a tense semifinal to set up the rematch with Djokovic.
“Obviously losing in the finals is disappointing. But making four finals is a very, very difficult thing to do,” he said. “And, yeah, I’m proud of my record here. I’ll go in with best tactics possible, prepare well — I literally couldn’t have done anything more to put myself in a better position come Sunday.”
Fans who watch the 2015 Australian Open final live online will see two players filled with confidence. Djokovic reached the final with a five-set win over Stan Wawrink and said he feels good going into the final match.
“I think I have much more positive things to reflect on in my game and then all the matches that I played so far in the tournament than the negative,” he said. “I’m in the finals. In the end of the day, that’s why I’m here. Getting to the finals in any way possible is a great achievement. I’m going to try to use that to build up of the confidence for finals.”
Experts think that Murray may have what it takes this time to finally best Djokovic in the Australian Open finals.
“Andy might be a slight favourite for me,” tennis legend Martina Navratilova told BBC Sport.
“I think Andy has slimmed down a little bit; he seems to be a bit leaner, he’s moving really well, still has all the power, improved his second serve. He has got to be encouraged by his performances so far in this tournament, and also by the fact that Djokovic wasn’t at his best against Wawrinka.”
Those who want to watch the 2015 Australian Open final live online can go to WatchESPN or the Australian Open website. Fans in the UK rooting Murray on will be able to find live streaming video through BBC One.
