Andy Murray says finishing his second-round match at the Australian Open at 4 am was a "farce". The 35-year-old's arduous five-set win over home favourite Thanasi Kokkinakis took five hours and 45 minutes. That followed Murray's first-round win on Tuesday when the Briton sealed victory in four hours 49 minutes against Italian Matteo Berrettini. "I don't know who it's [the late finish] beneficial for," said Murray on Rod Laver Arena after the match.
