Andy Murray fans to miss star's 'farewell match' after BBC's TV blackout
Millions of Andy Murray fans will miss seeing what could be the star’s farewell to tennis – because the game won’t be shown on the BBC.
Only subscribers to Eurosport or Amazon Prime will be able to watch his first-round match at the Australian Open, which is scheduled for tomorrow morning.
The Beeb don’t even plan to show highlights, despite having the rights for the tournament.
Sir Andy’s mum Judy will be in Melbourne for what’s likely to be a highly emotional match against Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut. It’s not known whether his wife Kim has flown to Oz to join her.
