The Australian Open runs from January 18-31, with Murray's first child not due until February. But the World No 2 said that he will leave Melbourne and return to Britain if his wife, Kim, goes into labour earlier than expected. "I'd go home. For sure, yes," Murray told the Daily Mail.

"It's obviously important. I want to make sure at the beginning I am there as much as I can be to try and help out, just be there for whatever is really required of me."

Murray, who inspired Great Britain to Davis Cup glory against Belgium last month, has been a beaten finalist at the Australian Open on four occasions.
