Melbourne - Andy Murray says he will not be watching his brother play in the Australian Open men's doubles final on Saturday, claiming it is too stressful.

The British world No 2, who got past Canada's Milos Raonic in a gruelling five-set semi-final, will play Novak Djokovic in Sunday's singles final.

It is the first time in the Open era that two brothers have played in finals at the same Grand Slam tournament with Jamie Murray partnering Brazilian Bruno Soares in the men's doubles final.

But Andy Murray said he will not be watching the doubles final.

"I haven't watched any of his matches here. I try not to watch. I find it pretty stressful to watch, so I won't watch the match," he said.

"But, yeah, for it to be the first time to happen is incredible really.

"He's made three in a row, he's playing great tennis and is moving right up to the top of the rankings. So very proud of him.

"Yeah, obviously something that's going to be extremely rare. You're not going to see it very often. We should enjoy it and be proud of it because it's a tough thing to do."

Asked how he will find out about his brother's result, Andy Murray said smiling: "Just check online."
