Andy Murray v Andrey Rublev: How to watch, TV channel, head-to-head stats & start time

Andy Murray looks to achieve back-to-back wins for the first time this year as he takes on world number five Andrey Rublev at Indian Wells.

The two-time Wimbledon champion enjoyed a comfortable first round victory over David Goffin, defeating the Belgian 6-3 6-2.

Rublev is in action for the first time since he was controversially defaulted for shouting at a line judge in Dubai.

The 26-year-old retained the ranking points and prize money from the tournament, despite his disqualification from the semi-final match against Alexander Bublik.

Rublev reached the semi-finals of Indian Wells in 2022, while Murray's best result at the Californian event came in 2009, where he finished runner-up to Rafael Nadal.

Murray and Rublev have opposed one another on three occasions, though their last match was an exhibition in Abu Dhabi where Rublev prevailed 2-0.

Murray won the first ever meeting between the pair at the Australian Open in 2017, sealing a straight sets win over the Russian before Rublev levelled the head-to-head with victory at the Rotterdam Open in 2021.

Rublev's progress to the semi-finals in Dubai was the first time he'd reached the final four of a tournament since his triumph in Hong Kong at the start of the year.
