Andy Murray struggled against Novak Djokovic during their practice match on Thursday
Murray was drawn against Bautista Agut after struggling against Djokovic on the Margaret Court Arena.
The Serb was winning 6-1, 4-1 when their allotted time came to an end in front of 2000 spectators.
Murray has been struggling with fitness since having surgery on his hip in January.
This led to the Scot slipping to 230th in the world and Bautista Agut, ranked 23, is expected to be a stern test.
