Andy Murray is a 9/2 chance with bet365 to win the 2012 Australian Open, with the Brit having reached the final of the same Grand Slam event a year ago before losing in straight sets to Novak Djokovic.

While there is little doubt that Murray is enjoying a successful career, the player is clearly desperate to get the monkey off his back and win a Grand Slam event as quickly as possible.

Ivan Lendl has been recruited as a new coach and perhaps the influence of the former world number one will bring a new dimension to Murray’s play. This is certainly the opinion of Greg Rusedski who feels as though his compatriot is fortunate to have this new mentor.

"Everyone's very excited by the hiring of Ivan Lendl as his new coach," Rusedski said.

"The appointment should give him some of the mental strength that he needs to win a major.

"The mental approach will be key. Murray knows he can beat the likes of (Novak) Djokovic and (Rafael) Nadal in a best-of-three-set match but he needs to do it back-to-back over five sets in the majors.

"It's only half a per cent he's looking for. Lendl knows how to get it done because he's been through it all.

"I think that when you have as much experience as Ivan, it has to be a good thing. He took things to a new level in tennis with the nutrition element and the physical side - he trained harder than anybody."

Bet365 will be live streaming the Australian Open every day to their customers, with quality live pictures coming from all the show courts which means all of Murray’s games can be enjoyed for free online.
