Andy Murray returns to court at the Miami Open on Sunday evening, when he faces Czech rival Tomas Machac.

The No.2 Czech player on the tour, Machac attained a top-60 rank for the first time in his career earlier this month and the 23-year-old has seen off American Darwin Blanch and fifth-seed Andrey Rublev, both in straight sets, to make the third round.

As for the Scot, he has regained form to pick up some of his most impressive wins of late, beating Matteo Berrettini and Tomas Martin Etcheverry in accomplished fashion.

Following his victory over the latter, he scrawled “life in the old dog yet” message on a camera lens to suggest reports of him being ready to retire were, once again, wide of the mark.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of his latest match in Miami.
