ANDY MURRAY has been drawn to face Argentina's Juan Ignacio Chela in the first round of the Australian Open.
Chela has lots more experience than Andy and will be a tough first round opponent, but absolutely the sort of player Andy will need to start beating if he wants to really improve his ranking.
Dunblane youngster Murray, 62nd on the world list, is making his debut in the event - which begins in Melbourne on Monday - and will play Chela for the first time.
The winner of the tie is likely to meet home favourite Lleyton Hewitt, the third seed and last year's runner-up.
Chela, 46th in the world, has reached the third round twice in Australia and has successfully negotiated the first round on each of his five visits.
