British number one Andy Murray says that he will not use scheduling as an excuse if he is beaten by Novak Djokovic in Sunday's Australian Open final.

Andy Murray has insisted that he will not use scheduling as an excuse if he is beaten by Novak Djokovic in the final of the Australian Open on Sunday.

The British number one needed five sets to overcome Roger Federer on Friday, while Djokovic, who took just 88 minutes to beat David Ferrer in straight sets, played his last-four match 24 hours earlier.

"You just try your best to be in the best possible condition for Sunday," said Murray.

"Realistically you're probably not going to feel perfect because of how the semi went, but it's not to say you can't recover well enough to play your best tennis."

Murray has beaten Djokovic in seven of their 17 previous meetings.
