Watch Australian Open 2016 Live Online: Andy Murray Vs. Milos Raonic Streaming Video Links

Tennis fans can watch the 2016 Australian Open live online and see whether Andy Murry or Milos Raonic can win the semifinal match and advance through to the finals Down Under.

With Novak Djokovic already in the finals after defeating Roger Federer, Murry and Raonic will now face off to determine who he will be facing. The second men’s semifinal match starts Friday at 7:30 p.m. local time in Melbourne (9:30 a.m. GMT).

Fans who watch the 2016 Australian Open live online will see two players vying to face Novak Djokovic, who advanced to his sixth Australian Open final with a 6-1 6-2 3-6 6-3 victory over Roger Federer, holding off a furious comeback in doing so.

“I played unbelievably in the first two sets but I needed to because Roger has been playing unbelievably and I knew he would be aggressive,” Djokovic said (via the BBC Sport).

Djokovic added that he knew it would take a nearly flawless performance to knock off Federer.

“Well definitely I played unbelievable the first two sets, but that’s what’s necessary against Roger,” Djokovic said (via the New York Times). “He’s been playing on a very high level in this tournament. He dropped only one set, and I knew he was going to be aggressive and try to mix up the pace and come to the net.”

Federer put together a comeback and was nearly about to extend Djokovic to five sets, but he was ultimately thwarted by mistakes and Djokovic’s strong play.

“My rhythm, my timing, all that, was a bit off in the beginning,” said Federer. “He took advantage of that and did an unbelievable job for a long, long time tonight.”

Those who watch the Andy Murray vs. Milos Raonic semifinal match live online will see if the British champion can keep better control of his emotions. It has been a stressful time for Murray, whose wife Kim is set to give birth next month, and the frustration boiled over in a quarterfinal win over David Ferrer where Murray had an emotional outburst at coach Amelie Mauresmo.

“I’m not particularly proud of the way I’ve handled myself on the court and I don’t think that my behaviour has been impeccable,” Murray said (via ESPN). “I’ve shown a lot of emotion and have been getting upset. Although I’m not exactly being positive with myself, I’m still very difficult for my opponents and fighting hard for every point.”

Mauresmo, also an Australian Open winner, seemed to understand the pressures Andy Murray was facing.

“We know that right now it’s a little bit complicated for him, with much to handle,” Mauresmo told British newspapers. “He responded well physically because there have been some harsh passages, and so there are ups and downs.

“But he still manages to beat Ferrer after a big fight and it was a beautiful performance. He knows he can count on us.”

There is still a chance that the birth of his child could pull Andy Murray out of the tournament. He has said repeatedly that he has no problem leaving Melbourne if his wife goes into labor, but he is now just three days removed from the finals, should he make it.

There is the potential for a rematch during Sunday’s final. Murray has reached the Australian Open final in four of the last six years but lost to Djokovic three times and Federer once.
