MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) Andy Murray has played through the Australian Open knowing that at any moment he would have to pull out and go to London for the birth of his first child.

His wife Kim is not due until early February and there has been no sign of early labor.

Hopefully it'll stay that way prior to Sunday's final when he faces Novak Djokovic, who has inflicted three of Murray's four final defeats at Melbourne Park.

Murray has a practice session two hours ahead of the final as he targets his first Australian Open final win at the fifth attempt.

The mixed doubles final between Coco Vandeweghe and Horia Tecau and Elena Vesnina and Bruno Soares precedes the singles final. Soares won the men's doubles title Saturday with Jamie Murray, Andy's brother.
