The Brit lost his opening match against Japan’s Kei Nishikori in straight sets, and is likely to need two big wins in order to qualify from his round-robin group.

Murray will play Roger Federer on Thursday, who beat the Canadian Raonic in his opening match last Sunday.

But American great Pete Sampras believes that Murray still has more to offer in the tournament, telling Radio Times: “Andy has been grinding out wins, and looking fit and strong again.

“You get the feeling that Andy could still be more aggressive against opponents like Roger and Novak [Djokovic]. He needs to go up a gear and go for his shots more.”

Where can I watch it?

Murray’s match is scheduled to start around 7pm this evening. Sky Sports 3 is showing live coverage all day from the O2, with the evening session starting from 6pm.
