A monster first day at Wimbledon features Andy Murray, Rafael Nadal, Marin Cilic and many more.
Murray will play 20-year-old trick shot artist Alexander Bublik. The Scot who announced he and wife Kim are expecting a second child, is not worried about a sore hip from earlier in the week.
“The last few days have been very good,” he said. “Practice each day has got a little bit better. It’s been slightly stop-start preparations, but each day I’ve felt better.
“But a little bit like at the French Open, where maybe I didn’t come in as well prepared, I still found a way with each match to feel a bit better, and built confidence each day. So, you know, I’m hoping that’s the case here.”
“I’ll be fine to play the event and play seven matches,” Murray said. “If I feel like I am today, I’d be delighted and have no issues getting through.
“You know, if necessary, I can take some anti-inflammatories if my hip flares up. Hopefully that’s not the case.”
Nadal faces Australian John Millman as he tries to win his first grass match in two years since beating Thomaz Bellucci in 2015.
Marin Cilic, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Nick Kyrgios, Denis Shapovalov and Stan Wawrinka who is bidding for a career Slam are also in action on a full day of 32 matches from the top half of the men’s draw.
